KSET Eligibility 2022

Candidates must check the KSET 2022 eligibility before applying for the exam. Candidates can find the KSET Eligibility below:

  • Should have obtained a minimum of 55% (without rounding off) in the subjects chosen for the KSET exam in the masters or equivalent exam from universities/institutions recognized by the UGC New Delhi, and 50% (without rounding off) for the general category, Schedule Category (SC), Scheduled Tribe (ST), Persons With Disability (PWD-VH/PH), Category I, IIA, IIB, and IIIA.

  • Candidates whose qualifying examinations have been delayed or who have taken or will take the qualifying Master's degree (final year) examination and whose results are still waiting may also take the KSET. Such candidates will, however, be admitted provisionally. For those who pass the KSET exam, an eligibility certificate will only be issued upon production of proof demonstrating that the applicant has completed a Master's program or an equivalent examination with at least 55% (or 50% in the case of SC, ST, PWD (VH/PH), Category I, IIA, IIB, IIIA, or IIIB candidates) marks within two years of the date of the KSET exam; otherwise, the applicant will be considered failed.

  • A 5% mark relaxation for taking the KSET exam is available to PhD holders whose Master's degree was achieved on or before September 19, 1991.

  • Only the relevant subject for their post-graduate degree shall be the one in which candidates must appear for the KSET examination. If a candidate cannot find his post-graduate degree subject in the list of KSET subjects, he may still appear for the twice-yearly CBSE UGC-NET / UGC-CSIR NET examination.

  • Candidates who do not fall under the general category must indicate in the online application form whether they fall under Category I, IIA, IIB, IIIA, IIIB, SC, ST, or PWD (VH/PH). Candidates should be aware that they must meet the eligibility requirements and send attested copies of documents with their applications, such as post-graduate degree mark cards, Tenth Marks certificates, category certificates, and certificates linked to PWD (VH/PH). The candidates must submit the category certificates by the deadline for submitting a physical copy of the application. They must be issued by the appropriate body, with an issue date no earlier than July 1, 2015. Their candidature will be withdrawn and subject to legal action if the KSET agency determines they are ineligible due to an invalid certificate.
  • Candidates who passed the previous KSET exam and are now eligible cannot apply for the same subject again. Suppose a candidate previously deemed eligible for the KSET exam decides to reappear for the KSET 2022 exam. In that case, their application will be rejected, and their prior eligibility will be revoked by de-notification.

  • Candidates must hold a Master's degree in the subject chosen for the KSET examination or any equivalent degree from a university or institution recognized by the UGC New Delhi.
