Thinking how to score 42-45 in Paper-1 of UGC NET
Read through this page to target 45/50 in Paper 1 and maximize overall score (Reading time 2 minutes).
Almost everyone score 70-75% in Paper-1. Then we blame score of Paper-2 for our “poor overall score” or “missing JRF”, because we believe we did great in Paper 1 by scoring 70%. So we do everything to improve our score in Paper-2, exam after exam, year after year, without any significant results. But is it smart strategy?
Please note that Paper-1 is “Predictable” and Paper-2 is “Unpredictable”. If we score 70-75% in Paper-1, then we are NOT doing a good job. With little smartness and hardwork, we should be getting 90-95% in Paper-1. This is the sure shot way (and probably the only way) of getting overall score above 70% and getting JRF qualified.
So, what is this “little smartness and hardwork”, which can get us 90-95% in Paper 1 ?
The Syllabus for Paper 1 (given at bottom of this page) is quite vast. So which Books or Study Material should we refer to? How do I get online mock practice tests ? What about Current Affairs?
Human Peritus team has designed a 3 Component Preparation Plan, which will get you 45/50 with just 30 Days preparation.
Component 1: You will get 3 Printed Booklets, with 80-90 pages each. You will finish entire syllabus in 12-15 Days with this concise content.
Component 2: Next you will get access to our online platform hp.examonair.com , which has all previous years’ questions from 2009 to 2018. But then. these questions are anyway publicly available. What is contribution of Human Peritus here? We did two things.
First, (and this is Super Exciting), each question has detailed explanation. The objective of this is not to “assess” you but make you “learn” while doing questions. Check out few sample explanations/answers by downloading free PDF of Study Material Clicking Here. Now imagine yourself going through explanations of 1000 such questions (equivalent to 400 pages of content). We confidently claim that you will not find such “easy to understand” and “detailed” quality content in any book/material in country. By doing this, you will become so confident that no question will appear unfamiliar to you in actual exam. This is most valuable component of preparation plan.
Second, Questions are bucketed topics wise. Thus you get flexibility to extra focus/ignore one or more types of questions. Do more learning, only in those areas, where you feel the need.
Component 3: Next, we will provide you 5 fresh Practice Mock Tests, created by Human Peritus Team. You will attempt on same online platform, just like real NTA exam in Dec 2018.
If you go through these 3 Components with us, You are ready to Score 45/50 in Paper 1. Please note that you need NOT refer any other book or previous year Papers. Nothing else. Rather, preparation time saved here, may be leveraged for maximizing your score in Paper-2.
This Package is available for a price of Rs 4400.

Detailed Strategy for Paper-1
Topic wise Strategy for Paper 1
Our expert team has prepared our own content after analyzing syllabus and previous years’ question and then identified many insights. For example, we have covered topic of Natural Hazard in 2 Pages, but One Question will appear almost every time from this. Similarly we repeatedly see One Question from India’s renewable energy target of 227 GW by 2022.
The Strategy for scoring 45/50 in 10 Syllabus topics (each will 5 questions in exam) is listed below:
1. Teaching Aptitude: With our material you can target 4/5 correct.
2. Research Aptitude: There is little unpredictability on expected questions, with our material and you can score 5/5.
3. Reading Comprehension: You must target 5/5. The difficulty level is not high.
4. Communication: You can target 4/5 for this section.
5. Reasoning (Including Mathematical): With our material, you can target 3/5 for this section. Be careful that, you do not waste time in the exam, if you are unable to solve any question in less than 2 minutes.
6. Logical Reasoning: You can score 5/5 with our booklets. There is very high predictability, in the kind of questions asked.
7. Data Interpretation: You can target 5/5 for this section, if you allot 10 minutes for 5 questions. It means you have to squeeze time elsewhere. You have to target solving questions in section 1, 2, 4, 8, 9 and 10 at rate of less than One Minute per Question.
8. Information and Communicating Technology (ICT): You can target 3/5 from this section.
9. People and Environment: Score of 4/5 is achievable in this, using our content. Generally there is perception that, this section includes Current Affairs. And thus students start referring notes of Civil services for “Environment” topic. But after analyzing previous questions, we have found that the questions are asked from very specific content.
10. Higher Education System: 1-2 questions are from Polity, for which you need to prepare 200-300 pages of Indian Constitution. It is better not to spend any effort in preparing for this topic, as ROI is low. 3-4 Questions are from Indian Education System (there is focus on current developments by MoHRD/UGC), out of which 2-3 can be easily targeted with our Study Material.
Thinking, what is change in UGC NET with arrival of NTA. We advise you to read through Click this blog on Time Management Strategy for Exam Day (Dec 2018). This is very Important.
Some of you might think, what is so special about Human Peritus? There are plenty of Books for Rs 200-400 on Flipkart/Amazon.
Get hold of any such book. Download any previous year paper (Previous Year Papers are available on CBSE/UGC website). Try to map, how many questions are explained in the given Book. You will find not more than 10-15 questions.
Even we, at Human Peritus, can not take you to 50/50, but we have understood the path to take you to 42-45 after analyzing papers of many years. With our “Concise & Targeted Study Material” you can target 42-45 with us.
