  • While studying for the subjects, keep in mind that there is no scope for selective studies in UGC. The whole syllabus must be covered thoroughly. Equal stress and weight should be given all the sections of the syllabus.

  • For subjects like Mathematics and Statistics and Geography maps etc, practice is very important. One should also practice other subjects and should not treat the same examination, as an “experience gathering” exercise to get a chance for attempting for mains is a great thing, which you may not get again.
  • Go through the unsolved papers of the previous papers and solve them to stimulate the atmosphere of the examination.
  • Stick to the time frame. Speed is the very essence of this examination. Hence, time management assumes crucial importance. Time management skills matter a lot in the NET Examination. Most of the candidates appearing for the NET examination have a lot of knowledge, but lack time management skills. Within the given time slot you should be able to present all the information/knowledge in a coherent and logical manner, as expected by the examiner.
  • For developing the examination skills, keep practicing model questions and answers while preparing for the NET examination. This helps get into the habit of completing exam under time pressure in the Mains examination. Paper 1 – 6,000 Practice Questions & Answers
