How to prepare for NET/SET and Other Competitive Exams?

The UGC NET exam, also known as the National Eligibility Test, is a competitive exam conducted by the National Testing Agency (NTA) in India for determining eligibility for the post of Assistant Professor or Junior Research Fellowship (JRF) in Indian universities and colleges. If you are planning to take the UGC NET exam, here are some tips that may help you clear it:

Clearing any exams is easy when you are giving 100% effort.

Familiarize yourself with the exam pattern and syllabus: Make sure you have a clear understanding of the exam pattern and the topics that will be covered in the exam. You can find this information on the NTA website or by referring to study materials or books.

What are the good Study Materials?

I strongly suggests

1. MCQ by LAL and KUMAR (link)

(Why this book? Because Questions in the books are arranged systematically. i.e, Every Question related with before and after question. So you can understand not only the fact also the subject.) This book not updated according to new syllabus. But still its have value for subject understanding..

[Read any authors MCQ book but you need to read thoroughly] [If you know all the questions in any one of MCQ book, it will give you the confidence to score minimum Marks]

2. IGNOU Materials/any other university materials.

For exam purpose only I am suggesting MCQ books but for Interviews and to gain depth knowledge in our subject you need to read University Study Materials and Subject Books.

Practice with mock tests and previous years' question papers: Solving previous years' question papers and taking mock tests can help you get a feel for the exam and identify your strengths and weaknesses. Also Old Questions Paper always helps to understand the question pattern and Important Questions etc.

(50-60% of questions will come from these three mentioned materials in UGC NET but 80-90% Questions will be asked in SET exams.)

Create a study plan: Make a schedule for studying that allows you to cover all the important topics and gives you sufficient time to revise. It is also helpful to break down your study sessions into smaller chunks to make it easier to focus and retain information.

Stay updated: Keep track of any changes or updates in the exam pattern or syllabus.

Seek help if needed: If you are having difficulty understanding certain concepts or topics, don't hesitate to seek help from a teacher or mentor.

What you have to do?

** You must Thoroughly read Lal and Kumar MCQ or any other author,
IGNOU Materials/any other university materials.

[I am always mention this, Without reading any book and attending Quizzes in will help only little and it will take more time. But if you read already Books, will be your Knowledge checker and you will know where you are standing, how much you need to read more etc.]

By following these tips and being consistent with your studies, you can increase your chances of clearing the UGC NET exam.

Keep Reading, All the very best.

Do not Delay:

It is generally not advisable to wait until the last minute to prepare for an exam, as it can be stressful and may not give you enough time to thoroughly cover the material. However, if you find yourself in a situation where you have to prepare for an exam at the last minute, here are a few things you can try:

Quickly review the most important concepts: Try to identify the key points that are most likely to appear on the exam and focus on reviewing those.

Take breaks and stay focused: Don't try to study for long periods of time without breaks, as this can lead to burnout. Instead, take regular breaks to rest and recharge.

Practice past exam papers: Solving previous years' question papers can help you get a feel for the exam and identify your strengths and weaknesses.

Get enough sleep: Make sure you get a good night's sleep before the exam, as this can help improve your memory and concentration.

Stay positive: Don't panic or get discouraged. Believe in yourself and your ability to do well on the exam.
