Andhra Pradesh State Eligibility Test (APSET) 2013  will be cunduted by Osmania University on 22th Sept, 2013. Osmania University has issued the AP SET notification for recruitment of Assistant Professor in different Colleges  University by conducting the Andhra Pradesh State Eligibility Test (APSET) 2013. Interested candidates Can apply  Via Online mode of application on or before 31th July, 2013. Further details of AP SET 2013 is mention below.


The Government of India as per its New Educational Policy, 1986 envisaged that in order to maintain uniform standards of teaching in the country the candidates besides possessing minimum academic qualifications are required to qualify in a comprehensive test specifically conducted for the purpose of obtaining eligibility for appointment as Lecturers/Assistant Professors. Accordingly UGC, New Delhi has been conducting the UGC-NET Examination regularly. It was felt that an eligibility test at the national level may not be completely able to represent the subjects which are regional in their character. Moreover, there was a demand from the aspiring candidates to appear for the test in their own mother tongue, wherever applicable. Therefore, 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.

As the State Governments were given an option to conduct their own State Level Eligibility Test (SLET), the Andhra Pradesh College Service Commission was identified as the Nodal Agency to conduct SLET for eligibility for Lectureship in colleges in Andhra Pradesh. Accordingly, APCSC conducted SLET thrice from February, of 1997 to February, 1998. Later, the Government of Andhra Pradesh abolished the APCSC and subsequently UGC has withdrawn accreditation in 2005.

Now, the Andhra Pradesh Government has decided to conduct SET Examination in the interest of large number of aspirants for recruitment as Assistant Professors/Lecturers through direct recruitment or by promotions in universities and degree colleges in the State and also to facilitate the candidates to appear for the test in Telugu medium, wherever applicable. After careful consideration of the matter, the UGC, New Delhi has identified the Osmania University as the State Agency for Andhra Pradesh to conduct the State Eligibility Test (SET) in Andhra Pradesh for 24 subjects for the year 2012.  Later, UGC Expert Committee has reviewed the whole process of conduct of APSET-2012 and appreciated the Osmania University for meticulous and efficient conduct of the APSET Examination.  Further, the Committee has given re-accreditation for another three consecutive years to Osmania University as a nodal agency to conduct the APSET Examination for the years 2013, 2014 and 2015.  On the recommendation of UGC Expert Committee, UGC, New Delhi has approved the following twenty seven (27) subjects for the conduct of APSET-2013.
