Is B tech Student eligible for UGC NET?

Priyank Sharma 31st Aug, 2019

Hello, students are not eligible for the UGC NET Exam. They must be qualifying or qualified for their Masters.

But on the good note, you can apply for CSIR NET which gives the same job opportunities as UGC NET, to the qualified candidates.

CSIR NET is conducted only for the Science stream candidates in 5 subjects. Subjects include;

Chemical Science
Earth Science
Life Science
Mathematical Science
Physical Science

As per your qualification you can apply for Mathematical Science. But with the bachelor’s degree, you will be eligible to appear only for JRF. To apply for the post of an Assistant Professor you must complete your Post Graduation.

I hope the above information will help you out.

Feel free to ask more queries.

All the Best!!

Thank You.
