Best UGC NET coaching in Lucknow | UGC NET Coaching in Lucknow - Athena Coaching Academy

Athena Coaching Academy welcomes aspirants to its 6 month coaching program, beginning on 24th June, for the UGC NET (II) - 2019, likely to be held in the last week of December.
The performance in the previous National Eligibility Test (NET), conducted for the first time by the newly created National Testing Agency (NTA) on behalf of UGC, in December 2018 has been as shown below:

  • Number of aspirants registered: 9,56,837

  • Number of aspirants appeared: 6,81,930

  • Number of aspirants who cleared NET: 44,001

  • Number of aspirants who cleared JRF: 3,883

  • The NET is held in 84 subjects and in each subject, only 6% of the aspirants scoring the highest marks are declared having cleared the NET. But in each of the subjects, this percentage is to be calculated separately for the unreserved, OBC (Non Creamy Layer), SC, ST and different segments of all physically handicapped categories. This explains the very wide variations within each subject regarding the cut-off marks for qualifying for NET for the aspirants belonging to various categories.

    The same procedure is adopted for eligibility for grant of JRF. As the results of the NET held in December 2018 shown above clearly indicate, out of every 200 aspirants, only one aspirant may clear JRF. It is a tough slog to reach this level of success.

      The number of aspirants seeking to clear NET in any subject, going by the previous years’ records, show a very wide variation. It is quite likely that in the forthcoming NET (I)-2019 commencing on 20th June, the number of aspirants seeking to clear NET would be as indicated below:


      Commerce                    (code 008)        1,00,000

      Political Science          (code 002)        50,000

      English Lit.                   (code 030)        50,000

      Education                     (code 009)        45,000

      Management               (code 017)        40,000

      Economics                   (code 001)        30,000

      Sociology                     (code 005)        30,000

      History                         (code 006)        25,000

      Law                                (code 058)        20,000

      Psychology                 (code 004)        12,000

      HRM & Labour           (code 055)        12,000

      Mass Comm.+ Journ. (code 063)        8,000

      Population Studies    (code 015)        5,000
      and so on…….

      We provide individually customized coaching in a large number of subjects in which aspirants are not likely to get guidance from any other coaching institutions. This is our USP.

      Our fees structure is linked to the duration of coaching. The fees for UGC NET Paper 1 & 2 Coaching in Lucknow, with classes 5 days a week in parallel for both papers, is Rs.30,000/- for six months and Rs.25,000/- for five months coaching. We hold combined classes for Paper 1.

      We provide only class room UGC NET coaching in Lucknow for this tough, career defining exam. We feel that online coaching or WhatsApp groups are not effective substitutes at all for class room interaction on a university pattern. We welcome aspirants to join our coaching at the earliest to get success in the first attempt itself.
