|APSET 2013 SYLLABUS MODEL PAPERS|
The State Governments and Union Territories were given an option of conducting their own test for eligibility for Lectureship at the state level. Thus was born the concept of State Eligibility Test, which will be conducted both in English and the vernacular. The State Eligibility Test (SET) is based on the pattern of the National Eligibility Test (CSIR/UGC-NET) conducted by UGC/CSIR. The State Governments and Union Territories, who wish to conduct the SET are supposed to obtain accreditation from UGC from time to time.
