The National Eligibility Test (NET), also known as UGC NET or NTA-UGC-NET, is the test for determining the eligibility for the post of Assistant Professor or Junior Research Fellowship(JRF) or both in Indian universities and colleges. It has been reiteratively termed to be one of the toughest examinations in India after Union Public Service Commission (UPSC), where it’s passing percentage is roughly around 3-6% per each session. The toughness of NET is much higher than other exams like GATE (15% -16%), IIT JEE(15%-25%). However, it is only recently where the changes in the passing percentage have been done.
