    First of all let me tell you that it is a very good thing that you are showing interest in Teaching career and want to complete NET and become lecturer. It is a good move and you can do better by going for this step.

    The eligibility for NET is as follows :-

    1. The Percentage of marks in the Post graduation must be more then 55% in case you belong to general category and in case of SC/ST and OBC the percentage of marks should be more then 50% so first of all you have to ensure that you have this much marks in your graduation.

    2. Age :- For Junior research program there is a age limit of 28 years where as for lecturer-ship there is no upper age limit which makes you eligible for the course.

    3. Subject you should choose which you have in your Post graduation however if you do not find the subject in the list then i advice you to choose Management as it is the nearest to what you have in your Post graduation.


    Hope it will help you

    • NET refers to National eligibility test which is for the lectureship and to award junior research fellowship (JRF).
    • You need to have the post graduate in any stream with getting an 55% marks from an recognised university.
    • However if you comes under the Reserved category, then the percentage requires reduces to 50% in post graduation.
    • There is no age limit for the lectureship but there is an upper age limit for JRF which is 28 years.
    • So you can apply for NET but only for the lectureship and not for JRF due to the factor of your age.
