The Government of India, in 1988, mandated the National Eligibility Test (NET) for Assistant Professor positions to ensure a consistent teaching standard nationwide. UGC conducts NET for Humanities and Social Sciences, while CSIR handles Science subjects. States were given the choice to conduct their test or adopt UGC-CSIR’s. Many chose to have their State Level Eligibility Test (SLET). In 2000, North East proposed NESLET, later becoming SLET Commission Assam (N.E. Region), now called SET (STATE ELIGIBILITY TEST).
