CBSE (UGC) NET JRF Exam Preparation Strategy

The CBSE (UGC) NET exam is to be administered in the objective mode for the 1st time from June-December 2017 the question arises how should an individual prepare and what all should he keep in mind to crack the CBSE (UGC) NET.

  • The new Objective type test pattern would require candidates to practice each topic because questions can be expected from any area of the subject thus, extensive studying is required.
  • What is interesting is the apparent de-emphasis on the electives in paper III of CBSE (UGC) NET. Earlier, paper III used to be the dreaded subjective section of this exam in which out 19 questions, 5 were from electives. Particularly, the number of elective would range from 1 to 5 depending on the subject.
  • It appears that now no choice of electives may be provided, as paper III of CBSE (UGC) NET in the new pattern would comprise of 75 questions, all are mandatory.
  • Candidates must go through their course syllabus twice or thrice before taking up the exam, not to forget keeping sufficient time for revisions. Regular mock tests, atleast once a week should form a routine part.
  • Mock tests build confidence level in the candidates, give a useful insight on what his speed and level of preparation is and where all he should enhance. For example, if a candidate is preparing hard and is still not performing well in the mock tests, he or she can judge what is his weakness and he can ultimately work on it.
  • Given that there is no negative marking, the objective paper would help the well prepared candidates to be luckier during the exam.
  • Still taking sufficient number of full length tests under timed conditions can proves remarkable in scoring in the objective type paper.
