UGC NET Result 2019: Procedure and Criteria for Declaration of Results

NTA adopts a 6-step process for the purpose of declaration of UGC NET results. These steps are explained here.

Step 1. NTA calculates the total number of candidates who will be declared as qualified in the UGC NET 2019 result. The total slots for eligibility will be equal to 6% of the candidates who have appeared in paper 1 and paper 2 both.

Step 2. Slots will be allocated category wise as per extant reservation policies of the government of India.

Step 3. It is seen how many candidates have obtained the qualifying marks.

Step 4. Now NTA calculates the number of candidates to be declared as qualified for one subject in the UGC NET result December 2019, in one category.

Let subject = S, category = C

Then, the number = Number of candidates belonging to the category ‘C’ who appeared in subject ‘S’ and secured qualifying marks of that category (x) total slots derived for category ‘C’ as per Step 2 (÷) total number of candidates belonging to category ‘C’ over all subjects who secure at least qualifying marks.

This is repeated for all subjects, all categories.

Step 5. If candidate is in the total number calculated in last step, and had also applied for ‘Eligibility for JRF & Eligibility for Assistant Professor both’, then he or she will come under the JRF consideration zone for UGC NET result 2019.

Step 6. Now the number of slots for JRF is calculated.

Now, this number = Number of candidates belonging to the category ‘C’ who qualified for eligibility for assistant professor in subject ‘S’ and opted for JRF (x) total slots for JRF for category ‘C’ (÷) total number of candidates belonging to category ‘C’ over all subjects who have opted for JRF and qualified for eligibility for assistant professor.
