University Grants Commission wishes to clarify that earlier qualifying criterion for UGC-NET Exam involved qualifying top 15% of those candidates in each subject and category, who obtained the minimum required marks in paper-I, paper-II & paper-III according to the category of the candidates.

Subsequent to the orders of the Hon’ble High Court of Kerala, University Grants Commission had revised the
procedure and criteria for qualifying candidates and as such it has been decided that 6% of the total candidates who appear in the UGC-NET examination will be declared qualified.

The qualifying percentage out of appeared candidates in the previous 4 UGC-NET examinations is given below:

Examination  & Qualifying percentage out of Appeared

  • June 2015 UGC-NET: 4.83%
  • December 2015 UGC-NET: 4.96%
  • July 2016 UGC-NET: 4.08%
  • January 2017 UGC-NET:           3.99%
  • Future UGC-NET:                      6.00%
