Many students are confused about their eligibility in appearing the UGC NET. One student asked me whether he is eligible for UGC NET exam as he did his MSW from IGNOU through distance learning. The answer is yes. If you have 55% in Post Graduation from any recognized university, then you can appear in the UGC NET exam. The % is different for the different category students. For general it is 55%.
So if you have completed your MSW from IGNOU, then you are eligible for UGC NET exam.
