  • What is your Thought on this Year’s Question Paper?

This year question paper was moderate to difficult. It was not an easy paper. The questions were not only factual but also application based.

  • according to you, when is the perfect time for a student to start the preparation for UGC-NET?

According to me if you are appearing for the December net exam than you must prepare from 4 months before the exam i.e. from August. And if you are appearing for the July NTA NET exam than you must start preparing from the month of January that according to me is the best time to study for the preparation of UGC- NET

  • How did you manage Paper I and Paper II preparation simultaneously?

I divided the time of the day for the preparation of the both the papers. As I was in NLSIU Bangalore while I was preparing for the NET exam I used to get very less time nearly about 4 hours for the study of nta net exam so I used to give equal time i.e. 2 hours to both the papers.  That’s how i managed my studies for both the papers simultaneously.

  • What were your approaches for Vast Subjects like International Law and Environmental Law and Human Rights in Paper II (Mention Book Name You Followed)?

One of my most important approaches for these vast subjects in paper 2 was to solve all previous year question papers of 10 years. Apart from that I also solved several question papers from the judicial service exams.
