    Dear friend,
    NET(NAtional Eligibility Test ) and SET(State Eligibility Test) are almost same thing difference is this, NET is conducted by central gov. open for all while SET is conducted by state gov. for their own state candidates.

    If you are appearing for SET then you can do job only in your state,while if you have cleared NET then you can choose the optional state you want if it is possible.

    This is the only difference ,both the test make eligible a candidate for a lecturer post in any degree college.

    Eligibility Criteria For NET:

    1. You should be an Indian.

    2.If you have secured at least 55% marks in Masterís Degree OR equivalent examination from universities/institutions recognised by UGC are eligible for this Test. The Scheduled Caste (SC)/Scheduled Tribe (ST)/Physically Handicapped (PH)/Visually Handicapped (VH) category candidates who have secured at least 50% marks (without rounding off) in Masterís degree or equivalent.

    Re: What are the details about NET/SET Exams?

    NET(National eligibility test) is an examination which is conducted by UGC(Union grants commission) for the purpose of selection of candidates who are suitable for the purpose of
    lectureship.This exam can be appeared by any candidate all over India(in other words from any state).But there are some conditions that are required to be fulfilled in order to
    appear for this exam.These conditions can be listed as follows:

    1)The candidate must have the minimum qualification which is required to be fulfilled in order to appear for the exam.The minimum qualification as specified by the
    the concerned authority is to have a post graduation degree from a recognized college of a recognized university.

    2)The candidate must have the minimum percentage required to appear for the exam.The candidate must have obtained at least 55% in post graduation in order to appear
    for the exam.

    One important point to note is that there is no such prescribed age limit to appear for NET exam.So, any person who satisfies the other two conditions can appear for the exam
    at any age.But there is an age limit to appear for Junior fellowship program which is 28 years of age.So, this age limit should be considered before appearing for this exam.

    You can also appear for SET(State eligibility test) which is an exam conducted by separate states for the selection of candidates suitable for lectureship program.
    There is a scope for a bright career in this direction.
