It is advisable for candidates to appear in the subject of their post-graduation only. If your post- graduate subject is not on the list, you can opt for related subject.
Candidates must not send any certificates or documents along with the application form to NTA.

Candidates belonging to the transgender category would be eligible to draw the same relaxation in fee, age and qualifying criteria for NET (i.e. JRF and Assistant Professor) as are available to SC/ST/ PwD categories. The subject wise cut-off for this category should be the lowest among those for SC/ST/PwD/OBCNCL categories in the corresponding subject
