GSET 2021 – Details
Previously UGC has recommended the Government to conduct a separate eligibility test to select Assistant Professors apart from having the minimum educational qualification. So until 1989, UGC was responsible for conducting a National Eligibility Test (NET) to select potential candidates for Assistant Professor recruitment. This exam was common for colleges all over India. After that, UGC asked the state governments and Union Territories to conduct their own eligibility tests.
As a part of that recommendation, the Gujarat Government is conducting the GSET exam to select qualified candidates for the recruitment of Assistant Professor/Lecturer in colleges across Gujarat.
