The UGC-NET, June 2019 will be based on the new Syllabi which can be accessed on the official website UGC-NET.
The NET is conducted on behalf of the UGC to determine the eligibility of Indian nationals ‘only for Assistant Professor’ or ‘for Junior Research Fellowship and Assistant Professor both’ in Indian universities and colleges. Till recently, the CBSE conducted the UGC-NET in 84 subjects at 91 selected cities spread across the country. However, from December 2018 onwards, the UGC-NET will be conducted by the National Testing Agency (NTA).
The award of ‘Junior Research Fellowship and Eligibility for Assistant Professor both’ or ‘Eligibility for Assistant Professor only’ depends on the performance of the candidate in both the papers of UGC-NET in aggregate.

Additionally, candidates who qualify the Test for eligibility for Assistant Professor are governed by the rules and regulations for recruitment of Assistant Professor of the concerned universities/colleges/state governments, as the case may be.
