An entrance exam conducting body, the National Testing Agency (NTA), has already issued a notification for UGC NET December 2023, which is scheduled to be held from 6th to 22nd December 2023 at various locations, across the country. Candidates have already started working on a good strategy and smart work so that they can excel in the exam and reach their career goals i.e. to become a college or university professor in India. In order to achieve this, every candidate must follow below below-mentioned tips to avoid common mistakes during the exam. In this article, we will discuss what mistakes should not be made by candidates before and during the exam.

Every candidate is aware of the pattern of the exam, that the exam has been divided into two parts i.e. Part 1 and Part 2. Part 1 is all about the common multiple-choice questions (MCQs), which is a qualifying exam, based on the teaching aptitude, and Part 2 is based on the specific subject, selected by the candidate. There are some mistakes that a candidate made before and during the exam. Here are some of the most common mistakes to avoid:

Not Understanding the Syllabus:

This is the most common mistake that a student makes while preparing for the UGC NET exam i.e. not understanding the syllabus. The syllabus provides a roadmap for the candidates to prepare for the exam. So it is very significant that you go through the syllabus before starting preparation for the exam. To learn more about the syllabus, you can take some references from the UGC official site or some other reference books. With the syllabus, you can easily achieve your goal.

Not Practicing Enough:

Another common mistake a candidate makes is not giving enough time for preparing the exam. It happens when a candidate starts preparing without making a proper and concrete timetable for the exam. Sometimes candidates also avoid practicing the previous year's paper, mock test, revision, etc. which helps them to make their strategy for their exam. And, due to this, candidates are not aware of their weak and strong points and make mistakes by attempting the wrong questions. So, whenever candidates have time, they must practice such things and should work on their timetable.

Neglecting Current Affairs:

Current affairs are an essential part of the UGC NET Paper 1 syllabus and Paper 1 contains most questions, that are related to current affairs, and generally, candidates thought that they could cover current affairs in the last days of the exam, which is not true, current affairs need proper dedication and time. Nobody can prepare the current affairs in a few days. So make a schedule to read daily current affairs.

Focusing on Memorization:

This is another common mistake that candidates make while preparing for the exam, usually, they just focus on memorization the point, but in actuality, they must understand the concept, rather than memorizing or learning. Once they understand the concept of the topic, they can answer the questions easily and do not need to waste time on thinking about, what I should answer for any question.

Time Management:

From the starting days, candidates have prepared the timetable just to manage the time. So it is also become the duty of a candidate that they must also follow the timetable. Because without the management of time, nobody can achieve their goal. So it is important to manage their time in proper and concrete way.
