To better prepare for the exam know the exam pattern of what type of questions will be asked, then go through the entire syllabus and analyze which sections seem to be easy and which are tough so that you can allocate your time accordingly, in both the papers I and II.

YouTube videos can be viewed to gather more information on a particular topic. You can try to solve previous years paper to practice better and you can also practice through online mock tests.

PALLAV TIRIYAR 5th Jan, 2020

UGC NET examines the eligibilty of the candidates who want to pursue teaching as a profession in Indian Government colleges. Through MBA in UGC NET, various public sector units recruit candidates for the posts of HR and marketing managers. Also, through a good score in the exam, a tag of JRF qualified is assigned (for top 2-3 percent students only) . This mean that the Indian Government will sponsor the expenditures in their Ph.D Programmes or research work.

I have passed ugc net under general ews category. Unfortunately my application to get ews certificate is rejected. Anyways I have scored more than the cutoff of general category. Is there any way that i can get my ugc net score card with general category?

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 2nd Jan, 2020

Subin, NTA mentions few things in its Information Bulletin. It goes on to say "NTA will not change  any information entered by the candidates on its own after completion of application process under any circumstances. It is upto the Candidate to enter the correct information. Once the correction window has been closed,  NTA does not guarantee that any request for change in information will be entertained." Now the counselling happens after the merit list and cut offs have been released. And the merit list is prepared according to the marks you have scored and the Category details you have mentioned while filling in the application form. Now though your score might be more than the General Category, your Category cannot be changed. You will be still considered under EWS Category and you will be expected to submit documents accordingly. If you fail to do so, your admission might stand cancelled.
