UGC NET, which stands for University Grants Commission National Eligibility Test, is a national-level eligibility test conducted by the NTA. It serves as a qualifying exam for the "Assistant Professor" or "Junior Research Fellowship & Assistant Professor Programme" for Indian students. This year, the UGC NET exam will be held in two phases, offering candidates the opportunity to showcase their knowledge and skills in their respective subjects.

Candidates who have registered for the UGC NET exam can download their admit cards through the candidates' login on the official website. The admit cards for the Phase 1 exam were released on 10th June 2023. Prior to that, the UGC NET city intimation slip and shift-wise exam schedule were released by the NTA on 8th June 2023.

In order to be eligible for the UGC NET exam in 2023, candidates must have completed their post-graduation from a college or university recognized by the UGC. Reserved category candidates are given a relaxation of five percent in the educational qualification criteria. Additionally, candidates who have successfully cleared the State Eligibility Test (SET) before June 1, 2002, are exempted from taking the UGC NET exam.

When it comes to the age limit for the UGC NET exam, candidates aspiring for the NTA NET JRF must not exceed the age of 30. However, there is no age restriction for those applying for the post of Assistant Professor. Reserved category candidates are granted a relaxation of five years in the age criteria, providing them with additional opportunities to pursue their academic career.

Until June 2018, the CBSE conducted the UGC NET exam on behalf of UGC. However, since December 2018, the responsibility of conducting the UGC NET exam has been taken over by the National Testing Agency (NTA).
