State Eligibility Test Commission, Assam 2022

SET Comission Exam Assam Announced – Applications Invited Online


In order to maintain a uniform standard of graduate and post-graduate teaching throughout the country, the Government of India through its notification in 1988 stated that only those candidates would be considered eligible for a post of Asst. Professor, who besides fulfilling the minimum academic qualifications for it, also qualifies in comprehensive test, National Eligibility Test (NET), to be conducted for the purpose. Accordingly, the University Grants Commission (UGC) has been conducting the eligibility Test for Asst.

Professor in Humanities and Social Science subjects. The council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) has been conducting the eligibility test for lectureship in the Science subjects. UGC simultaneously asked the Govt. of the States and UnionTerritories about their option to conduct their own test or alternatively adopt the UGC-CSIR test. In case they opt to conduct a test equivalent to UGC-CSIR then these should be accredited by the UGC. In response to this, many States opted to conduct their own test,i.e., State
Level Eligibility Test (SLET) for Asst. Professor. Similarly, a proposal was put forward for constituting the North East State Level Eligibility Test (NESLET) on 26-6-2000 to conduct such a test for the aspirant candidates of the North Eastern Region. It was subsequently constituted as SLET Commission Assam (N.E. Region).

The name of the Test has again been modified as SET (STATE ELIGIBILITY TEST).
Its member States at present are Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Mizoram, Manipur, Meghalaya, Sikkim, and Tripura.


SLET Commission Office is located at North Jalukbari Guwahati – 781 014
(Phone No. 0361-3513692)
