There is a simple difference between these two exams.

Candidates who clear UGC NET will be applicable for various Indian Universities, Institutes, and colleges for lectureship. Aspirants who clear SET exam will be eligible only for particular state universities and colleges.

You can try for both the exams as the syllabus for these two is approximately the same.

Qualifying UGC NET will give you more career opportunities than SET.

I hope it helps!

National Eligibility Test (NET)

NTA conducts the UGC NET Exam to select the eligible candidates for Lectureship and for the award of Junior Research Fellowship.

It’s a national level eligibility test to select the deserving candidates only.

UGC NET is conducted for all the aspirants from Science, Arts, Humanities, Commerce & etc.

 

State Eligibility Test (SET)

State Eligibility Test is organised on the state level to all those aspirants who wish to become Assistant Professor. Candidates can also be awarded for Junior Research Fellowship through SET Exam.

 

Difference b/w NET & SET

The Major Difference in UGC NET & Set is, if you qualify for the SET Examination, then you are only eligible for a job as an assistant professor in a particular state. You will not be able to become a lecturer outside the state.

I hope this will help you to understand the difference!!!

Thanks,
