How to study for UGC NET exam

* To begin with  UGC NET preparation, please go through the syllabus thoroughly. For subjects like Mass Communication and journalism that only have a vague outline provided with, the first thing need to do is to go through the  post-graduate syllabus quite thoroughly. Mark that sections which offer longer questions more often.
* Concentrate on the Paper II. For literature subjects, focus on history of literature.
* Practice has no alternative. The more you go through mock test.
* A common mistake students do is to neglect Paper Ist. Remember if you cannot clear Paper Ist, the latter papers will not be evaluated at all. Practice lots and lots of Aptitude Test MCQ everyday so that you can answer the questions really  fast. Set a time limit well short of the given time (75 minutes) for yourself and check how fast you can attempt all the 60 questions.
* Practice Paper III writings at home. Many people think that since the answers are smaller with word limits, the total examination will not be lengthy as it had been the case in the post-graduation in most cases. Wrong. There are lots of questions and for some, one really need to meditate over with time.  
* Proper introductions and use of keywords in longer questions is the key. For shorter answers, one  really need to use technical terms. Do not try to define those terms and teach the examiner and thereby make the answer surpass the word limits.

Media Mentor  suggestions :
UGC NET is not the kind of exam where you can just mug up your brain by putting one extra piece of information or two just before the exams. If you have studied hard right through the preparation period, stay a little relaxed when the exam reaches on your the shoulder. On the previous day of the examination, do not try to overburden your brain. Just stay relaxed. Get a good night's sleep before the exam. And last but not the least, reach your examination  centre early so that you do not panic or get tensed about reaching the hall on time. Best of luck!
