OPEN 40% aggregate marks in all the two papers taken together

     * OBC/SBC/DT(A)(VJ)/NT(B)/NT(C)/NT(D)/SEBC (Non Creamy Layer Category Only)/
35% aggregate marks in all the two papers taken together
* Enter your category in the online application form correctly, as the minimum marks for passing and the cut off marks for qualifying are linked with it. Hence, the candidates will not be entertained for change of category once the date of editing of application form is over. No request for any corrections shall be entertained after the last date of editing online application form.
Step II: Amongst those candidates who have appeared in all two papers and cleared step I, a merit list will be prepared subject-wise and category-wise using the aggregate marks of all the two papers secured by such candidates.
Step III: According to UGC’s directive, 6% of the appearing candidates are to be declared qualified for Eligibility for Assistant Professor only (Appearing means appeared in all two papers of SET). The reservation policy prevalent in the State is to be used to compute the category- wise qualifying slots available for eligibility for Assistant Professor. The subject- wise and category- wise distribution of qualifying slots will be calculated by using the formula mentioned below:
e.g. No. of qualifying slots for a subject Under General Category =
( No. of candidates who fulfilled minimum eligibility in that subject under General category) X ( No. of slots available under General category )
Total no. of candidates who fulfilled minimum Eligibility in all subjects Under General Category
Hence, the category should be correctly entered in the online application form. (Change of category, subject, center etc. will not be allowed after the last date of editing of online application form). It may be noted that the above qualifying criteria decided by UGC is final and binding.
