UGC NET JRF Apply Online, Syllabus & Selection Criteria
We live in simpler times, you have to agree with me. Applying for exams earlier was such a pain for all the students, you had to send in a letter to go to the post office and mail it.
All we have to do is open our laptops or even mobile phones and just with a click, boom we’ve applied for the exam.
In this blog, I’m essentially going to be talking about three things:
I assure you, even though our generation is privileged because of the internet, we still can face issues while filling the online form.
But before we get to that, let’s discuss the selection criteria, shall we?
UGC NET JRF Selection Criteria
In our last blog we discussed the UGC NET JRF Eligibility Criteria (UGC NET JRF Admit Card, Eligibility Criteria & Exam Result).
Hence the checklist for you to know your eligibility, let’s discuss the checklist of the UGC NET JRF exam that checks your efficiency.
Selection Criteria of the UGC NET JRF is one of the main features you need to study before and even after applying for the exam.
Not that I want to scare you but UGC NET JRF is one the toughest selection process and a low percentage of the total candidates appearing for the exam, actually clear the exam with the required cut-off.
So, let’s dive into the UGC NET JRF Selection Criteria before I scare you off any further, and let’s make sure you’re one of the few who pass the exam with flying colors.
Now the UGC NET JRF Selection procedure is based on and divided into 2 tests – Paper I & Paper II.
UGC NET JRF Selection Criteria – Paper I
Even though both exams are tough and equally important, if I had to compare out of the two evils, Paper I is definitely a little better than Paper II.
Paper I of the NET JRF exam is an objective examination that goes on for an hour constituting 50 questions.
Now for every right answer, the candidate scores +2 mark (yay) and for every incorrect answer, there is no negative marking.
You heard it right, no negative marking. So after you’re done attempting all the questions you’re absolutely sure about, go crazy and let your instinct guide you for the rest of the exam.
Even though the marks of both, Paper I & Paper II, together make the final result, it is still advisable for the candidate to try and score the maximum marks in Paper I itself because remember, Paper I is lesser of the two evils.
The National Testing Agency (NTA) instead of conducting the exam on one day, conducts the exam over a time period.
Since the exam takes place online, the candidate is free to choose a date and time in the given time period. Both Paper I and Paper II take place on the same day.
Now let’s discuss the exam pattern of the Paper I:
Exam Duration: 60 minutes
