As per information made available on the website of UGC-NET, the following are the points related to the question raised by the author of the thread -
1. Candidates should have obtained at least 55% marks in master's degree or equivalent examination from universities / institutions recognized by UGC.
2. Candidates are advised to appear in the subject of their post-graduation only. However, in case the post-graduation subject of the candidate is not covered in the list of subjects they may appear in a related subject.
It is seen that the subject of the author i.e. Molecular Biology and Genetic Engineering is not covered in the list of subjects given on the website. Therefore a question arises as to whether the subject 'Forensic Science' is a related subject or not?
In my opinion, the author should visit and go through the website of 'Joint CSIR-UGC Test for Junior Research Fellowship And Eligibility for Lectureship' - http://www.csirhrdg.res.in/ to ascertain if the subject of his M.Sc degree is covered under CSIR-UGC-NET or not?
However, since the subject 'Forensic Science' is listed under the UGC-NET examination, the author may contact following directly for authentic information -
