Was the UGC NET LAW Dec 2018 conducted by the NTA more difficult than the recent previous exams ?

We looked at the recent numbers and the cut-off percentages for Dec 2018 are higher than all the previous years since June 2014 – except for June 2015, which saw marginally higher Cut-offs.

In a nutshell – if we look at the trends since June 2014; the Dec 2018 exam has the second highest cut-off marks. Though there will be several variables at play, a simplistic way of interpreting the numbers is that the Dec 2018 UGC NET LAW question paper was relatively easier than most previous years in the comparison.

On an average, candidates achieved higher scores, hence the higher cut-offs in December 2018.

Going by the same yard-stick, the November 2017 UGC NET LAW paper was the most difficult among those compared. The cut-off percentages saw a drastic dip in this year, across all category of candidates.

Note : UGC has revised the syllabus for Papers 1 and 2 from Jan 2019 onward.

UGC NET Law Cut Off - Year-wise - for JRF and Assistant Professor - LawMint

What is the expected UGC NET Law cut off for qualifying in the upcomingΒ  exam ? or How difficult is it to clear, crack or qualify in the upcoming UGC NET Law exam ?

We reviewed the detailed results of the recent UGC NET Law exam held in Nov 2017 and did some analysis, with the intention of answering a few frequently asked questions, including the above.

All these calculations are done using data specifically from the set of candidates who qualified after appearing for the Law subject. (Code 58).

Our cut off percentages will slightly vary from the basic stats published by the UGC, that is because we have not segregated between JRF and Assistant Professor qualified UGC NET Law candidates. If we segregate, the numbers will match.

How many students registered for the UGC NET Law exam in Nov 2017 ?

A total of 9,28,999 candidates registered for the UGC NET November 2017 exam. (4,09,439 male 5,19,557 female and 3 transgender candidates)

UGC has not provided a subject specific break-up of the registration numbers, but calculating from the other data points available, approximately 16,000 students specifically registered for the UGC NET Law exam in November 2017.

How many students actually appeared in the UGC NET Law exam in Nov 2017 ?

UGC says that more than 75% of the registered students appeared for the exam (averaged across all the subjects). However, the drop-out rate will not be constant across all subjects.

By calculating backwards from the final numbers, approximately 14,500 – 15,000 candidates should have appeared for the UGC NET Law exam.

How many students achieved the minimum marks required for JRF and/or Assistant Professor eligibility in the UGC NET Law exam in Nov 2017 ?

In order to be eligible for the JRF and/or the Assistant Professor qualification, a candidate must have appeared in both the papers and secured at least 40% aggregate marks in both the papers taken together for General (Unreserved) category candidates and at least 35% aggregate marks in both the papers taken together for all candidates belonging to the reserved categories viz., SC, ST, OBC (belonging to Non-Creamy Layer) & PWD and Transgender.

Assuming that around 85% of the candidates who appeared managed to meet the minimum requirements for eligibility, approximately 12,300 candidates scored the minimum marks required in the UGC NET Law exam.

How many students finally qualified in the UGC NET Law exam in Nov 2017 ?

With the new selection rules, 6% of the candidates who appear for both the papers and meet the minimum criteria will be declared as eligible for JRF or Assistant Professor or both.

A total of 737 candidates qualified in the UGC NET Law exam.
674 candidates qualified as eligible for Assistant Professor only.
63 candidates qualified for both Assistant Professor and for JRF.

Why is there so much of a difference between the number of candidates qualifying for Assistant Professor alone; and for both JRF & Assistant Professor ?

Yes, less than ten percent of the total qualified candidates have been declared as eligible for the JRF. This could be because of three factors :

[1] Not every candidate would have shown a preference for both the qualifications – i.e. many students would have opted for Assistant Professor qualification only. (Though the choice does not make any difference in the probability of getting qualified in either or both)

[2] The only real differentiating factor would be the age criteria – while there is no age limit for Assistant Professor qualification, the JRF has an upper age limit of 30 years for General category candidates (There are relaxations for reserved category applicants and candidates who have LLM degree etc. See official notification for details.) – so we can safely assume that a majority of the candidates were more than 30 years of age; hence qualified only for the Assistant Professor role.

[3] In India, we see that the interest level in pursuing research is significantly less than pursuing a career or a profession – hence, the interest level in JRF will be inherently less.

How many PwD – Persons with Disability candidates qualified in the UGC NET Law exam in Nov 2017 ?

Overall,Β  among the candidates who cleared the UGC NET Law exam, there were 24 candidates under the PwD category.

Loco-motor Disability – 12
Visually Impaired – 8
Hearing Impaired – 2
Multiple or Other Disabilities – 2

What is the predicted minimum UGC NET Law cut off marks and percentage required to qualify in the 2018 exam ?

Based on the above numbers,
– taking into consideration that there is no change in the syllabus and
– assuming that there will not be any major change in the profile of the candidates applying for the UGC NET Law exam in 2018,Β  the predicted numbers will be as below.

The numbers have been adjusted for the new pattern, where the previous Paper III has been merged into Paper II and total number of questions have been reduced.

The maximum marks now will be Paper I : 100 marks, Paper II – 200 marks, adding up to 300 marks.

The lowest aggregate UGC NET law cut off marks (predicted) for all papers combined (300 marks) for UGC NET Law

Gen – 162 (54%)
OBC – 150 (50%)
SC – 141 (47%)
ST – 138 (46%)

The lowest UGC NET law cut off marks (predicted) for Paper I – for candidates appearing for UGC NET Law ( 100 marks )

Gen –  40 (40%)
OBC –  40 (40%)
SC –  32 (32%)
ST –  40 (40%)

No change from 2017 numbers since the pattern and syllabus of Paper I remains unchanged for 2018.

The lowestΒ  UGC NET law cut off marks (predicted) for Paper II UGC NET Law ( 200 marks )

Gen – 94 (47%)
OBC – 88 (44%)
SC – 80 (40%)
ST – 82 (82%)

The predicted UGC NET law cut off marks and Percentages have been adjusted for the new pattern.

Note:Β  Simply adding the lowest scores in Papers I and II will not lead to the lowest aggregate scores. The aggregate and the individual papers have to be considered separately for a better estimate.

Also, while the marks in a specific paper may be less than 35%, it is the aggregate marks that is taken into consideration for basic eligibility.

All the calculations are based on the overall data available from UGC NET Law Nov 2017 results and basis other assumptions. The numbers and predictions are not for republication.

Candidates are advised to check the official data released by UGC for any clarifications. You can access the complete UGC NET November 2017 results sheet at this URL : https://cbsenet.nic.in/CMS/Public/View.aspx?page=91

2 Comments on “UGC NET law cut off marks, expected cut off analysis”

  1. Hello

    Does the level of question paper being easy or difficult also affect the cut off?

    Do I get the print of the course material?

    1. Yes, if the paper is easier, more number of candidates will score higher marks; hence the cut-off percentages will also go up. As visible in the graphs, the trend has done up for all categories of candidates; hence we can safely assume that a number of candidates found the paper relatively easier in December 2018.
