What is the GSET Exam?
About GSET Exam: The GSET exam is an eligibility entrance test which is conducted to select aspiring and qualified candidates for the post of Assistant Professor in colleges across Gujarat. The Gujarat State Eligibility Test (GSET) Agency, The Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda, Vadodara is the conducting authority of GSET exam. It is recognized by the UGC, New Delhi.GSET is a state-level online examination held once a year.
Previously UGC has recommended the Government to conduct a separate eligibility test to select Assistant Professors apart from having the minimum educational qualification. So until 1989, UGC was responsible for conducting a National Eligibility Test (NET) to select potential candidates for Assistant Professor recruitment. This exam was common for colleges all over India. After that, UGC asked the state governments and Union Territories to conduct their own eligibility tests.
As a part of that recommendation, the Gujarat Government is conducting the GSET exam to select qualified candidates for the recruitment of Assistant Professor/Lecturer in colleges across Gujarat.
