    hi,sir
    No.You are not eligible for NET anyway being 40 year old.

    Age limit of NET
    As per the University Grant Commission, there is no age limit to take the National Eligibility Test for Lectureship.
    The age limit is only applicable for candidates applying for Junior research Fellowship through the National Eligibility Test and is as follows:

    For candidates belonging to General Category -19 to 28 years
    For candidates belonging to Sc/St and OBC category -19 to 33 years ( 5 year relaxation )

    To be considered eligible for National Eligibility Test for Lectureship along with Junior Research Fellowship or only for Lectureship, candidate must have scored a minimum of 55% marks in the masters degree examination, which is relaxed upto 5% for candidates belonging to Sc/St category.


    Best of luck....

    Those candidate have completed masters degree with above 55% marks from recognized university are eligible for NET exam.Marks relaxation is provide for SC/ST candidate(50%).


    There is no age limitation for those who are applying for Lectureship but for JRF , Your age should not be more then 28 years.


    Your age is now 40 years old .So you are applicable for NET exam because NET Exam have not any age criteria .

    From this year NET exam is fully based on objective type Question paper . Even paper III also objective type.
