The NTA will organize the UGC NET 2021 exam from November 20 to December 5, 2021. Admit cards for the exam will be released soon on ugcnet.nta.nic.in.
The National Testing Agency (NTA) will organize the 2021 University Grants Commission National Eligibility Test (UGC NET) from November 20 to December 5, 2021. Once qualified, candidates for the exam will be able to practice their teaching profession at renowned universities and institutes in India. Since this is a national-level exam, the competition is stiff and candidates must follow a sound preparation strategy for preparation.
The UGC NET 2021 exam model includes two tests: test I is common to all and test II is specifically based on the field selected by the candidate. The first section covers 50 questions for 100 marks, while the second covers 100 questions for 200 marks. To try and complete the two tests, candidates will have 3 hours.
With the exam fast approaching and the UGC NET 2021 admit card about to be published on the official website ugcnet.nta.nic.in, here are some last minute tips and tricks to be successful at UGC NET 2021.
- For Reasoning ability, practice at least 30 questions every day. However, these questions should be based on a large number of topics. Try to understand and solve the problem without checking the options. After all, this topic aims to test logic and thinking skills.
- To gain control of reading Comprehension, candidates must spend 30 minutes a day reading renowned national newspapers. One newspaper in English a day is considered sufficient to improve comprehension resolution skills. For grammar practice, solve the relevant exercises given in Wren & Martin.
- There is no set method or trick to prepare for the Divergent Thinking section. However, by solving mock UGC NET tests by chapter and by full chunk, one can become familiar with this topic. The key is not just solving the problem, but understanding the approach behind such problems.
- For the General awareness section, no additional preparation is necessary, as reading a national newspaper on CR can also be helpful here. In addition to the logs, there are several YouTube videos that provide the important dates and information to decipher this section. Make sure to watch these videos, at least in the last 5 days before the exam.
- For test II, applicants will need to complete their Bachelor’s and Master’s program to pass this section.
With 20 days remaining for the exam, candidates should focus on the three R’s: review, revisit, and correct. Review by solving at least one mock test and UGC NET quiz from the previous year each day, within a limited time frame. After solving these tests, look for vulnerable areas and review them to understand what went wrong. Finally, reread these areas instead of starting something new.
