Assam PSC SLET Exam Eligibility


Assam SLET Exam Eligibility 2014

1. Concept of State Eligibility Test ( SET ) : In order to maintain a uniform standard of graduate and post graduate teaching through-out the Country, the Government of India through its notification in 1988 stated that only those candidates would be considered eligible for a post of lecturer, who besides fulfilling the minimum academic qualifications for it, also qualify in a comprehensive test, National Eligibility Test ( NET ), to be conducted for the purpose. Accordingly, the University Grants Commission ( UGC ) has been conducting the eligibility Test ( NET ) for lecturership on Humanities and Social Science subjects. The Council of Scientific and Industrial Research ( CSIR ) has been conducting the eligibility test ( NET ) for lecturership in the Science subjects.

UGC simultaneously asked the Govt. of the States and Union Territories about their option to conduct their own test or alternatively adopt the UGC-CSIR test. In case they opt to conduct a test equivalent to UGC-CSIR then these should be accredited by the UGC. In response to this, many States opted to conduct their own test i.e. State Level Eligibility Test ( SLET ) for lecturers. Similarly a proposal was put forward for constituting the North East State Level Eligibility Test ( NESLET ) on 26.6.2000 to conduct such a test for the aspirant candidates of the North East Region. It was subsequently constituted as SLET Commission Assam ( NE Region ). The name of the Test has again been modified as SET ( State Eligibility Test ). Its member States at present are Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Mizoram, Manipur, Meghalaya, Sikkim and Tripura.
