UGC NET Cut Offs 2023 – Factors Determining Cut Off:

The cut off is determined on the basis of the following factors:

  • It also depends on the difficulty level, as it is a very important factor to determine cut-off. If the question paper will be more difficult, then the cut off will be lower; whereas in the case of easy paper the cut off will be less.
  • It also depends on the number of candidates, those who have appeared for the examination. If the candidates will be more then cut off will be higher, and vice-versa in case of fewer candidates.
  • It can also be determined by the previous year’s UGC NET Cut off. We can get an average, by calculating through the previous year’s data.
