Tips and Techniques for UGC NET


Tips and Techniques for UGC NET

Near about one million aspirants appear in UGC NET examination and less than 10% of total appearing aspirants qualified this respectful and one of the toughest examinations of India.

Today I share few tips and techniques for UGC NET and I believe that all these tips and techniques will help all the aspirants so much to crack UGC NET examination in the first attempt.

Let’s explore these tips and techniques for UGC NET.

  1. Choose Authentic Books Only:- Whenever I train the aspirants in any UGC NET workshop or UGC NET training program, I asked a question to the aspirants with which books they are preparing for UGC NET and most of the time I got the response that they are preparing with only a book which has all units combined in a single book. In my point of view these sort of books are essential for revision and practice purpose when you have prepared a lot through the separate books for each unit of the syllabus. Such popular book is recommended here. So prepare unit wise accordingly through authentic books recommended by your teachers or subject experts.
  2. Time Management is Required:- When we prepare unit wise through authentic books, a lot of time is required regularly. Moreover, we have to perform other responsibilities also in our lives so the time management is to be maintained and a minimum of dedicated 3-4 hours are essential for self-study purpose.
  3. Note Making is Essential:- Note making is essential to revise the syllabus in a short period. Moreover, it strengthens our command over the subject. I recommend to take a blank register on which the notes are to be made by the UGC NET aspirants. These types of hand written notes are easy to revise efficiently. I have done it personally and got the benefits of this practice.
  4. Revise the Entire Syllabus:- Once the syllabus is completed, the aspirants must revise it unit wise firstly and then randomly. At this level for revision and practice purpose the aspirants can use the popular single book which has all units together in it.
  5. Take Mock Tests:- UGC itself recommended to take mock tests to qualify the UGC NET examination. The aspirants must take the mock tests on regular basis. Few free mock tests unit wise are recommended for the aspirants on the provided link here.
  6. Do Group Study:- The aspirants can prepare for General Paper in groups also as it sharpen their learning skills and revision practice also. The sincere and dedicated group members can learn more in specific subjects also. For learning and practice purposes, the aspirants can join social media groups which are dedicated to UGC NET examination. I recommend following social media groups for relevant posts, tips, study material, important questions and much more on UGC NET examination.

These Tips and Techniques for UGC NET  are taken from the book, “51 Tips to Crack NTA-UGC-NET: General Paper” written by Mohammad Rizwan. This book can be bought from

Definitions of Hypothesis

definitions of hypothesis

Hypothesis word is taken from the Greek words ‘Hypo’ and ‘Tithenas’. ‘Hypo’ means under and ‘Tithenas’ means to place. In easy words we can understand that hypothesis is an intelligent prediction through which the researcher finds the relationship between two or more variables and the conclusions of the research are revealed.

The hypothesis plays one of the most important role in the whole research process done by the researcher as the hypothesis suggests which sort of research method and analysis technique are the best to choose for the particular research problem.

Example of Hypothesis: “There is no significant difference between the intelligence level of boys and girls of arts and science streams.”  (It is an example of Null Hypothesis and here the researcher wants to relationship between the intelligence level of boys and girls of arts and science streams.)

Let’s explore few major definitions of hypothesis.

Definitions of Hypothesis

“A hypothesis is a tentative generalization, the validity of which remains to be tested. In this most elementary stage, the hypothesis may be very hunch, guess, imagination data, which becomes the basis for action or investigation.”

—— George A Luniberg

“A hypothesis is written in such a way that it can be proven or disproven by valid and reliable data – in order to obtain these data that we perform our study.”

 —— Jr. Richard Grinnell

“A hypothesis is a statement capable of being tested and thereby verified or rejected.”

—— Rummel and Balline

“A hypothesis is a proposition, condition or principle which is assumed, perhaps without belief, in order to draw out its logical consequences and by this method to test its accord with facts which are known or may be determined.”

—— Webster Dictionary

“Hypothesis is a proposition which can be put to test, to determine validity.”

—— Goode and Hatt

 “A hypothesis is an attempt at explanation of a provisional supposition made in order to explain scientifically some facts or phenomenon.”

—— Coffey

“A tentative statement about something, the validity of which is usually unknown.”

—— James Black A & J Champion Dean

“A hypothesis directs our search for the order. It is not essential for a hypothesis to be necessarily true.”

—— Cohen M. and Negel E.


Types of Hypothesis

The major categorization of hypothesis can be done as follow:

Research Hypothesis

Null Hypothesis

Testable Hypothesis

We will learn more about above types of hypotheses in future posts.

How many study hours are needed to prepare for UGC NET

“How many hours are need to prepare for UGC NET examination?”.  It is very common question the aspirants asked me in UGC NET training classes or workshops.  Let me tell the answer of this burning question on also.

As everyone knows time management is the key to success in any examination, we must allocate our time to unit wise syllabus of UGC NET.

As far as the study hours are concerned, these may be different from person to person due to individual differences. Some aspirants can prepare a chapter in two hours while others can do it in five hours. In my point of view the regular 3-5 hours study time is sufficient to crack the UGC NET examination in first attempt.

As the UGC NET is one of the toughest examinations, so quality study hours are needed for the preparation of NTA UGC NET.

An aspirant must improve question solving speed, practice with mock tests and should study from authentic books only to save and maintain study hours for UGC NET examination.

So finally, 3-5 quality study hours are needed to prepare for UGC NET examination.
