Are you passionate about sharing your knowledge with others? Then you can be a good professor. For this, one needs to clear CSIR NET, conducted biannually across India to determine eligibility of Junior Research Fellowship (JRF) and appointment of Lecturers (NET) in the subject areas falling under the Faculty of Science.

The exam is conducted in the field of Science including Life Sciences, Physical Sciences, Chemical Sciences, Mathematical Sciences and Earth Atmospheric Ocean and Planetary Sciences.

CSIR NET differs from UGC NET for UGC NET is conducted for the post of Lecturer and for providing the JRF for Indian nationals in order to ensure minimum standards for the entrants in the teaching profession and in research.The exam is conducted in streams such as Arts, Humanities, Social Sciences, Commerce, etc.

While CSIR NET is conducted for 5 subjects but UGC CBSE NET is divided in three sections. CBSE UGC NET is for 1 hour with section 1 and section 2 of 15 minutes and section 3 of 30 minutes. CSIR NET is scheduled for 3 hours. Both these tests are held two times a year, mostly in June and December. But there are many candidates who are confused between UGC-CBSE NET and CSIR-UGC NET. Although the purpose of conducting both these exams is the same, there is a difference in the subjects involved.
