Ph.D.  after a 4-Year Bachelor's Degree with 75% Marks: UGC Guidelines


The National Eligibility Test (NET) is now available to students with four-year undergraduate degrees directly, according to a Sunday announcement made by UGC Chairman Jagadesh Kumar. The purpose of this modification is to make the procedure easier for students who want to pursue higher education.


The University Grants Commission (UGC) said in a statement that "Candidates with four-year undergraduate degrees can pursue PhD in any subject irrespective of their bachelor's degree discipline."


Additionally, students can now directly pursue a Ph.D., opening up new opportunities for academic advancement, if they have 75% of their total marks or similar grades. These changes signify a significant modification to the qualifying requirements for these tests, providing qualified applicants with more chances.


"Candidates with four-year undergraduate degrees are now eligible to apply for the NET and pursue a PhD straight. Regardless of the field in which they earned their four-year bachelor's degree, such individuals are permitted to apply in a subject where they wish to pursue a PhD, Kumar told PTI.


"The candidates having passed a four-year bachelor's degree course should have a minimum of 75 percentage marks in aggregate or its equivalent marks wherever the grading system is followed," said the chairman of the UGC. He added that applicants from SC, ST, OBC (non-creamy layer), differently abled, economically disadvantaged sectors, and other categories as determined by the UGC may be eligible for a relaxation of five percent of their marks or its equal grade.

Mandatory Test to Apply for a Ph.D.

The UGC-NET test is used to evaluate an applicant's eligibility for one of three programs in Indian universities and colleges: "admission to PhD only," "appointment as an assistant professor and admission to PhD," and "award of Junior Research Fellowship (JRF) and appoint as an assistant professor."
