**What is the UGC NET Examination?**

The UGC NET examination, conducted twice a year in June and December, serves as a qualifying exam for Junior Research Fellowship (JRF) and Assistant Professorship in universities and other higher education institutions across the country.

**Categories of UGC NET Examination:**

1. Candidates eligible for admission to Ph.D., JRF, and Assistant Professor positions.
2. Candidates eligible for admission to Ph.D. and Assistant Professor positions.
3. Candidates eligible solely for admission to Ph.D. programs.

**Application Fee:**

The application fee for the UGC NET examination is INR 1150 for the General category, INR 600 for Other Backward Classes (OBC), and INR 325 for candidates belonging to Scheduled Castes (SC), Scheduled Tribes (ST), or Transgender categories.

**Eligibility for Four-Year Bachelor's Degree Holders:**

Students with a four-year undergraduate degree or those in their final year can now also take the National Eligibility Test (NET). Such candidates are permitted to appear in the subject of their post-graduation studies, provided they have a minimum of 75% marks or equivalent grade in their undergraduate program. Previously, NET aspirants needed a postgraduate degree with a minimum of 55% marks to be eligible.

This decision allows students with four-year bachelor's degrees to directly pursue Ph.D. programs and appear for the NET examination.

The UGC NET examination is a crucial step for those aspiring to pursue research or enter academia, and the approaching deadline underscores the urgency for interested candidates to complete their applications promptly.
