    UGC-NET is conducted on Languages, Social Sciences, Art, Culture, Commerce and Management (more than eighty disciplines). UGC-NET is presently being conducted by the CBSE. There are three papers in UGC-NET. The first one is of general nature, and the second and third papers are related to the particular discipline which the candidate choses .

    On the other hand, CSIR-NET is held on Chemical Sciences, Earth Sciences, Life Sciences, Mathematical Sciences and Physical Sciences. The candidates have to appear in only one paper of three hour duration. The MCQ Test Paper on each subject carries two hundred marks.

    Both UGC-NET an CSIR-NET are held twice in a year.

    Caution: Explosive. Handle with care.
