There are no age restrictions for attending UGC NET (lectureship). But for JRF, the upper age limit is 28 years. You can have exam preparations in topics of general aptitude and subject related topics. Exam is conducted in objective model. Exam syllabus can be collected from UPSC portal. Reference books and previous year question papers can be used for study.
