10 Mistakes You Should Not Do In Preparation of UGC NET Exam Paper 1


Understand the CBSE UGC NET Paper 1 pattern thoroughly. It’s important to answer 50 questions you know rather than answering more because if you answer more than 50 questions only the first 50 will be counted regardless if questions after the first 50 are answered correctly

  • Follow a methodical pattern of studying for maximum benefits keeping latest trends of paper in mind.
  • Prepare a study schedule including as many varied topics as you can and study accordingly.
  • Study basic concepts in mass communication for the communication topic.
  • Study each topic as 6 questions will definitely come from each Section.
  • It’s important to study Teaching and Research in depth as the most difficult questions are usually in this section.
  • Revise basic mathematics concepts from class 10th, focusing mainly on understanding sets/patterns and improve approximation technique
  • Data Interpretation is generally based on statistics, so study statistics from class 10th to prepare.
  • Read any new material (not too long) and try summarizing it in a few points to practice for reading comprehension.
  • People and Environment should be prepared from Class 10th as well
  • Information and Communication Technology and Higher Education System should be given sufficient time as both are material-heavy
  • Prepare Information and Communication Technology and Higher Education System from books specified for UGC NET
  • Use flash cards and charts for Information and Communication Technology,
    Definitions, abbreviations and terminology are very important for Information and Communication Technology so make sure you know them well
  • Study for Higher Education System Governance, Polity and Administration using flowcharts
  • Practice as many sample papers/previous year papers as you can to gain speed and accuracy
  • Remember to check the sample CBSE UGC NET Paper 1/previous CBSE UGC NET Paper 1 soon after completing it so you can identify and improve on your weak areas.
    Go through the paper once and make a mark of those questions that you know well to be encircled in the OMR sheet.
  • 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 his weakness is and he can ultimately work on it.

**Don’t get stuck on a single question. If you don’t know the answer for a particular question, go ahead and try to solve other questions. More importantly, don’t mark the answer for the question you don’t know because it will break your confidence level.

**Time management is also very important. You get only 75 minutes to solve the paper. So you should solve a question within 65-70 seconds to complete the paper on time and recheck your answers.

Concluding notes:

Many of the candidates take CBSE UGC NET Paper 1 very lightly thinking that it is very easy to clear paper 1 of UGC NET. Of course, it is very easy to clear this paper but it is to be remembered that scoring high marks in this paper will help you in your cumulative/aggregate score. Because, earlier UGC kept only minimum qualifying marks to qualify in this exam but nowadays, you got to score that cutoff marks which varies from time to time. So be careful and give utmost importance to paper 1 too to clear the exam with flying colors.
