  1. Guru Institute

    Great post! I am really happy to read this valuable stuff. It’s really very informative blog! Also, here I am going to sharing the best coaching institute for preparation pf the CSIR NET Life Sciences Coaching in Chandigarh.

    1. rashmeet singh

      80 will be the cut off for JRF (atleast NET) in maths

  2. solfy

    What is the value of chemical potential for BEC ,it is 0.
    But anwer given in the key is different.

  3. dinesh

    foe incompessibility answer is given as b
    i am getting 65 mark my chances???///

  4. dinesh

    hi everybody
    for the question regarding incompressibility of fluids the answer given in the key is it’s velocity is non divergent ……….bt i think it should be constant density any solution

    i am getting some 65 mark any chances????????//

    1. sarishti

      We can only guess a cutoff(around 80). It’s quite hard to clear the exam.

    2. rashmeet singh

      I think cut off for JRF in ENGINEERING SCIENCES will be around 80-85..MAX 85

      1. rashmeet singh

        hi engineering science students
        any news regarding result?
        can anyone tell me what will be job opportunities in govt colleges after NET?
        will they hire just a BTECH candidate as a lecturer for btech students?I doubt it.

        1. mb azmi

          presently there are colleges hiring btech graduates for teaching btech students.
          so doesn’t seem a problem

        2. Sajad

          There is no lectureship net for engineering Sciences . Its only JRF.

      2. sumit

        are you sure this was the cutoff for the dec 2012 engg science exam ? Bcoz I am going to write the test this summer and would like to know who has appeared last year and how much was the cutoff.

        Thanking you

  5. DKS

    csir jrf/ls result will come within a week……………source todayz dainik jagran newz paper

      1. Gitanjali

        i m heartly waiting for dec 2012 life science resuly….is it realy declared on 2nd week of feb 2013…..

  6. unnati

    last time we got question paper within a month after exam.
    and answer key before 10 days of declaration of result i.e. on 14 aug(for june paper)

  7. DKS

    result will come in feb last week…………………..as i think……………..

  8. virendra

    hi What will be the utoff for lifescience for OBC.
    I may get about 80 marks.

    1. rashmeet singh

      hi friends
      I’m coming with the CSIR Engineering Sciences relevant concise theory plus a lot of solved problems just in the month’s ending.
      It will include:
      1.Engineering Mathemathics
      2.Fluid mechanics
      4.Solid Mechanics
      5.material sciences
      plus safe,easy and selected topics of Electronics and Electrical.

      1. sarishti

        It would be of great help if you could share some material with us. Thanks in advance

  9. rubin

    Hi friends,I am from lifescience stream,last time 84 marks was the cut off,this time exam was a little more difficult,isnt it? What would be the expected cut off for life science?

  10. Nithin

    Ya, paper was very tough.. I’m from mechanical.. I expect around 80 only..

    1. rashmeet singh

      hi nithin
      according to you,80 marks would be for JRF or lecturership?

  11. sarishti

    Isnt 80 marks a bit high? The paper was quite tough.You are from which stream?

    1. rashmeet singh

      hi sarishti
      i’m from instrumentation field.
      i can only guess the cut off.Anyways how much do you expect the cut off?
      answer b can only be derived if option a is right.
      as equaton is
      d(pu)/dx +d(pv)/dy +d(pw)/dz + dp/dt=0(here d is partial derivative and p is density)
      now if p=constant,then dp/dt=0 and p comes outside the brackets.
      thus resulting eqn is du/dx +dv/dy +dw/dz=0
      i.e divergence(velocity field)=0

    2. Ravi Pandey

      For CSE student paper was tough..bcoz in part b(engineering apti) nothing was related to cse..:( Electrical nd ece student may score good.

  12. rashmeet singh

    there is a question in section B of engineerig sciences which has 2 correct answers.
    Q.For incomressible fluids which of the following is right?
    ANS. option(a) density is constant.
    (b)divergence of the velocity field is zero.

    1. Rachit

      The correct answer for this question will be (a) because that is necessary for fluid to be incompressible and if it is given that fluid is incompressible then according to continuty equestion divergence of velocity field vector will be zero but converse is not true example
      for a fluid whose density is a function of field lest say p=f(x,y,z)
      and velocity field is given by V=x(y-z)i+y(z-x)j+z(x-y)k here it is clear that div(V)=0 but density is not constant hence only necessary condition for a fluid to be incompressible is density= constant

      1. rashmeet singh

        hmm you are right rachit.
        Anyways friends I think 80 would be safe marks to get through

  13. rashmeet singh

    hi everyone
    this was the first time for engineering sciences.
    paper was difficult and i think engineering is almost similar to physics.So 80 marks will be the cut off.
