Hi Karan Bhut,
The basic strategy for UGC NET JRF 2021 should completion of the whole syllabus within 6 months as the examination for this year will be conducted in June 2021.
Essentially, the UGC NET JRF exam is conducted in Two Papers- Paper 1 and Paper 2. While Paper 1 includes general topics like teaching aptitude, quantitative aptitude, polity and constitution, environment, etc. This paper is generally deemed scoring and easier to crack.
Whereas the syllabus of Paper 2 is totally based on the syllabus of graduation and post-graduation syllabus. Dedicated preparation for three months is required to crack this exam.
According to my a minimum of 6 months of preparation is required to Prepare for UGC NET Examination. These 3 months can be divided into
Out of these 4 months for Preparation, you can allocate one month each for Paper 1 and Paper 2.
There are approximately 20 topics in Paper 1. You can give 6 days for each topic. In these 6 days, you can read about the topic for the first 4 days and the third day you can practice questions related to that topic. If you follow this approach, you will be able to complete the syllabus of Paper 1 in two month and similarly, you can complete the syllabus of Paper 2 (Commerce) in two month.
Now, you have to start giving Mock Tests. Start with past years papers and that too move from old to recent past years papers. Make a set of 5 papers. Solve them and look for the subjects in which you are facing problems. Then you can start working on improving that subject.
Divide your subjects into three categories, i.e., Strong, Medium, and Weak. Start your Preparation with Strong Subjects, then go with the medium one and at last the weak ones. The reason to follow this approach is that there is no sectional or subject-wise cutoff in NET Examination, you just need to maximize your score.
Now the question arises, How will you find out which are your strong subjects and which are the weak one. Doing this is quite simple, appear for 2–3 Mock Tests before you start your preparation. These mock tests will help you assess the following:
(a) The difference between your current preparation level and the level that is required to pass the exam.
(b) If you need to work on certain topics from scratch.
(c) If you are taking too much time in solving questions.
Then you can make a list of topics in the following categories:
(a) Topics that you are comfortable with and can solve quickly. - (Strong Subjects)
(b) Topics that you are comfortable with but taking time in solving. - (Medium Subjects)
(c) Topics that you have solved earlier but forgot the method of solving. - (Medium Subjects)
(d) Topics that you are not at all comfortable with. - (Weak Subjects)
I am providing you with the syllabus of UGC NET Economics 2021 as an in-depth understanding of the same would enable you to competently prepare for the examination by deploying your efforts and time in the right direction.
