  • You have a little over 1 minute to attempt each question, it is important to keep an eye on the clock to make sure you don’t spend too much time on the first few questions and then rush through the rest of the paper.
  • Practice with Best Study Kit For UGC NET 2021.
  • solve the questions you know the answers to first. 
  • Since there is no negative marking, do not hold yourself back from attempting all the questions asked in the exam. Go from the ones you are sure about to the ones you may know the answers to, and if you have time to spare at the end, use it to make wild guesses on questions you have absolutely no idea about.
  • Use the break between exams to clear your head. Do not overthink your performance in the first paper and definitely do not browse through your notes or books for Paper II in a last-ditch attempt at revision.
  • Walk into the exam hall with a ‘Can Do’ attitude. Do not let negative thoughts or self-doubt dominate your mind.
