    Yes, you are eligible. But do you know that NET scored candidates are also not getting faculty positions in colleges as positions are very less or nil, in some cases. Why don't you go for B.Ed. This is a one year diploma course meant for people who want to teach in secondary or higher secondary schools.
    Once you clear your B.Ed. course with good marks, you will be able to apply for any private school for arts group teaching positions. But for being selected you will have to clear the interview procedure definitely. But the plus point is that there are lots of vacancies in schools than in colleges.
    Also if you are really pressed upon that you want to give NET, then do make an account in their official website which is www.ugc.ac.in. You can take this year for preparation and then apply for next year June month's examination. If you are from general category then the form fee is Rs.450.
    Think about the two options I said and then take your decision.

    Hello Friend ,

    Surely, you can apply for NET exam that is conducted by UGC every year twice in a year mainly in the month of June and December .

    As the minimum qualification to be eligible for this exam is Master's in any discipline from recognized university with 55% if you are from General category otherwise 50% for SC.ST/OBC category.

    You can even apply for NET JRF but your age must be within 28 years if you belong to General category , and for SC/ST /OBc : 33 years .

    So no need to worry if your age is above 40 years also you can apply for Lectureship , as there is no age limitation .

    • Hello friend
    • NET stands for National Eligibility Test

    • You are eligible for writing NET exam
    • Only post graduation completed people are eligible for NET exam
    • You must complete M.A with minimum 55% marks
    • There is no restriction about the specialization you did
    • Your age must be in 19 - 28 years
    • It would be more good if you apply for subject in NET with your specialization in M.A

    • all the best
