UGC NET 2020 : Mistakes to avoid

Despite having good preparation for the UGC NET exam, candidates sometimes make silly mistakes out of stress, nervousness or anxiety which can even ruin their chance to get through the final merit list of UGC NET.

Don’t Be Late
Reach at least 90 minutes before the commencement of the exam as it is strictly mentioned in the UGC NET 2020 admit card that ‘Latecomers are not allowed’. If your UGC NET 2020 exam centre is in another city, reach there a day before examination to get an idea about location and other amenities.

Carry Important Documents
Assemble all the important documents such as UGC NET admit card 2020, photo identity proof, passport size photograph and all other important documents a night before exam. So that there will be no hassle on the UGC NET 2020 exam day. Carry an extra print out of UGC NET 2020 admit card with yourself to avoid any discrepancy.

Carry COVID-19 Essentials
NTA clearly mentioned what needs to be carried along with UGC NET admit card 2020 as COVID-19 essentials to lower the risk of coronavirus pandemic. Assemble all the essentials such as mask, gloves, transparent water bottle, personal hand sanitizer and follow the rules of social distancing.

Attempt Easy Questions first
It will be time saviour if you will attempt easy questions on priority basis. Don’t get stuck with tricky questions. It will consume time and you will not be able to attempt other questions in UGC NET exam 2020. Go with the ‘Quality over Quantity’ while attempting questions.

Don’t Hurry while reading question paper
It is important to read the question paper carefully to get an idea about what exact answer you need to give. Don’t read the UGC NET 2020 question paper in one go. This might give you stress if you find any difficult one.

Don’t Panic
Above all don’t get panicked before or during UGC NET 2020 exam. Keep yourself calm. Drink water if you feel anxiety or stress. If you like, you can listen to music before the exam to relax yourself.
