CSIR NET Qualifying Cutoff 2021

NTA releases the CSIR National Eligibility Test qualifying cutoff. The qualifying cutoff is the minimum score needed to qualify in the exam. However, only scoring the qualifying marks may not be sufficient to be selected for CSIR NET JRF/Lectureship. Candidates will have to score as high as possible to increase their possibility of selection. The category-wise qualifying cutoff is given below:

CategoryMinimum Qualifying Cutoff
General & OBC33%
SC/ST and PwD25 %

The JRF/LS Cutoff will be released for each of the subjects. However, the cutoff scores will not be released for each section of the paper. The cutoff released is based on the overall or total marks scored. The officials take several parameters to release the cutoff scores and the same is also discussed in this article.
