UGC NET Paper 1 Preparation Tips 2022

About Exam

UGC NET is considered one of the toughest exams. To score well candidates must have a good preparation plan that can help in performing better in the exam. Candidates appearing for the exam are advised to follow the below mentioned preparation tips and suggestions for UGC NET:

Knowing UGC NET Syllabus Preparation

The candidates are suggested to go through the entire UGC NET Syllabus thoroughly so that they can understand the syllabus completely and start preparing accordingly by focusing on each topic. Pen down the complete UGC NET Syllabus of the subject you have chosen and review all the topics that you need to cover to get good marks.

  • Don’t mix the topics that are not a part of the syllabus
  • Start with the topic that you can complete faster.
  • Bookmark the topics which you have completed and then proceed to the next one.

Preparing UGC NET Notes

  • During UGC NET Preparation, the candidates must develop a habit of regularly revising the notes of all the important and difficult topics which they have prepared previously. 
  • By writing notes, the students can easily remember things, especially the formulas and short tricks that together help in securing good marks.
  • Make sure that the notes which you have prepared are clear and well written so that at the time of revising them, you don’t get confused later.

Solve UGC NET Previous Year Papers

The students can get a clearer understanding of the exam pattern better by solving the previous year's papers and referring to the respective answer keys. It also helps in building confidence. Before starting UGC NET Preparation by solving last year’s papers, the students must understand each topic that is related to the course content and can be asked in the exam. In case the candidates find it difficult to solve the question then they must take the advice of their teachers or seniors who can guide them.

Since UGC NET is an online exam, the candidates must start practicing as many mock tests as possible. Along with solving previous years’ UGC NET question papers, mock tests also play an important role in helping the candidates. Some of the benefits of giving more mock tests include:

  • It will offer the real look and feel of the exam
  • The time management skill of candidates will improve greatly
  • The candidates will be able to judge their weaker areas and can start preparing accordingly
  • The candidates will have a more accurate understanding of the important topics that can be asked in the exam

Time Management

Candidates must know how to effectively manage their time so that they can complete the paper within the allotted time only. They must solve more mock test papers through which they can increase their speed and can give the answers more accurately. 

Candidates appearing for UGC NET must start preparing seriously as the exams are just a few months away and it is advised to start at least 3 to 6 months before the examination. Follow a regular study routine so that the entire syllabus can be completed within time and you can get freedom from the last-minute worries and can do UGC NET Preparation in a better way.

Time Management During Exams

  • Time management is very important while sitting in the examination centre.
  • Since the time is limited to solving questions, answer those questions first that are familiar to you, rather than wasting your time on less familiar questions.
  • In case you are facing any kind of problem in solving the question, mark them and solve them later.
  • Try to save some time so that you can cross-check all the answers at the end.
