The National Eligibility Test (NET), also known as UGC NET or NTA-UGC-NET, is the examination for determining the eligibility for the post of assistant professor and/or Junior Research Fellowship award in Indian universities and colleges.
The examination is conducted by National Testing Agency(NTA) on behalf of University Grants Commission. Till July 2018, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) conducted the UGC NET exam, which the NTA has been conducting since December 2018. Currently, the exam is being conducted twice a year in the months of June and December in online mode.

Your age should be less than 31 years on the first date of the month in which the UGC NET Exam registration process would be concluded i.e. 01.03.2021 (This is applicable for the current examination only).
There is also a provision for relaxation in the upper age limit for the December 2020 Cycle (May 2021) of the exam. You may check all of these provisions in detail in my blog on eligibility criteria (link provided above).
However, there is no Age Limit for Assistant Professorship (AP).
You should have a Master’s Degree from a University/Institution recognized by UGC with a minimum of 55% marks (without rounding off). This will be 50% in the case of SC/ST/PWD/transgender candidates.
The UGC NET exam comprises 2 papers. The first is a common/general paper, and the second is a subject-specific paper. I have explained it a bit more in the lines ahead.
However, both the papers are to be completed in a time duration of 3 hours, meaning that there is no break between the two papers. Therefore it is up to the candidate to manage his time between the 2 papers accordingly.
Although, I would advise you to try and finish Paper 1 in a maximum time of 60 minutes, and use the remaining 120 minutes of the total time duration to solve paper 2. I say that because paper 1 has only 50 questions in it, while paper 2 has 100.
Anyhow, you should definitely attempt all the questions in the exam as there is no negative marking.
So to reiterate, both the papers differ in their respective exam patterns:
Paper 1 – Same for all Subjects
Paper 2 – Subject Specific
