MHT SET Physics/ Physical Science

MHT SET Physics is the exam to find the State Eligibility Test(SET) for Assistant Professor. Assistant Professor is a position in which you. Can teach to Senior College Students. This exam is MCQ based. Pune University takes SET Exam once in a year. Usually, it is in June last week. CSIR NET exam is one week before it. And the form of this exam comes around march first week. The difficulty level of this exam is a little less than the CSIR NET exam. The Syllabus of it is similar. the disadvantage of this exam over NET exam is you don’t get JRF And you can’t apply outside of Maharashtra state.
