The pattern of UGC NET exam has changed and here I am presenting you an article with tips and tricks on how to pass the UGC NET exam easily.
Change number 1: Paper 1 will have only 50 questions and all are compulsory questions.
Till last year, there used to be 60 questions and out of which 50 questions were to be answered.
The advantage of having 60 questions is that you can easily leave those 10 questions which are doubtful.
But now you got to answer them all with the changed pattern.
So you got to hone and sharpen your reasoning, comprehension, divergent thinking and general awareness. The key here is solving as many questions as possible.
Change number 2: There is no individual cutoff for each paper as it used to be in the previous years.
There will be an aggregate cutoff of 40% marks of all three papers for general category and 35% aggregate cutoff marks for all other categories.
It is indeed a welcome step as even if a candidate does not perform well in any one of the papers, he/she has a greater chance of performing really well in other two papers and try to fill the mark gap created by that one paper. It is indeed a win-win situation.
