Procedure & Criteria for Selection in CBSE NET 2017
The procedure & criteria of selection in CBSE NET 2017 is explained in the following steps.
- Step I: The candidates need to obtain minimum marks to be obtained in NET for considering a candidate for the award of JRF and eligibility for Assistant Professor. They are required to obtain minimum marks separately in Paper-I, Paper-II, and Paper –III.
- Step II: Amongst those candidates who have cleared the step I, a merit list will be prepared subject-wise and category-wise using the aggregate marks of all the three papers secured by such candidates.
- Step III: Top 15% candidates (for each subject and category), from the merit list, mentioned under step II, will be declared NET qualified for eligibility for Assistant Professor only. By this method, if the number obtained is less than one, it is taken as at least one, i.e., a minimum of one candidate is qualified wherever a fraction less than one is obtained as per this methodology. However, for fractions greater than one, the figure is rounded off to the nearest whole number.
- Step IV: A separate merit list for the award of JRF will be prepared from amongst the NET qualified candidates figuring in the merit list prepared under step III.
