Default Tips to Crack CSIR (NET) Chemistry Exam

Will you please provide here some Tips to Crack CSIR (NET) Chemistry Exam?

Here are some Tips to Crack CSIR (NET) Chemistry Exam:

Make a Proper Schedule
Revise the Basics First
Be Selective
Practice Model Test Paper
Healthy Diet and Rest
Take good books for preparation
Solve previous question paper
Consult with good teacher

For your help here is the attachment of CSIR UGC NET Exam Chemistry question paper:

Some good tips to prepare for CSIR-UGC (NET) Exam for Chemical Sciences are as follows:

You must know the Syllabus and Important Topics

Prepare a daily time table and stay fix to it

Solve the CSIR NET Previous Years Papers & Mock Test Papers

Prepare a notebook in which you mention only the quick methods, formulas and shortcut tricks.

Understand the Exam Pattern

Make the habit of making the notes in your own languages

Key things to remember Clear your basics Take breaks Stress less Good sleep Healthy food Be strategic Ask questions Make a plan

Paper Pattern

The CISR UGC NET Exam for Chemical Sciences will be divided into three parts, as described below:

According to new pattern implemented from June 2011 onwards, the CSIR NET exam in chemical sciences is:
* a single paper test having multiple choice questions (MCQs)
* carries a maximum of 200 marks
* is divided into three parts (A, B & C).
* conducted for the duration of 3 hours.

Part - A carries 20 questions and is common to all the subjects. The candidate is required to answer any 15 questions. Each correct answer is awarded with 2 marks. The total marks allocated to this section shall be 30 out of 200.

The revised pattern for this part will test general aptitude with emphasis on logical reasoning, graphical analysis, analytical and numerical ability, quantitative comparison, series formation, puzzles etc. There is no syllabus prescribed for this.

Part - B contains 40 multiple choice questions generally covering the topics given in the syllabus. A candidate is required to answer any 35 questions and each correct answer is awarded with 2 marks.

The total marks allocated to this section shall be 70 out of 200.
The standards of these questions from this section may range from 10+2 to PG level in chemistry subject.

Part - C consists of 60 questions. A candidate shall be required to answer any 25 questions, each carrying 4 marks. The maximum marks allocated to this section are 100 out of 200.

The questions shall be of analytical nature where a candidate is expected to apply the scientific knowledge in chemistry to arrive at the solution to the given problem.
There will be negative marking @25% for each wrong answer.

The tips to crack the CSIR NET (Council of Scientific and Industrial Research National Eligibility Test) Chemistry Exams are as follows:

Proper time schedule and sticking to that is the key to success of any examination. One should organize a schedule for the topics to be covered for the examination to kick start one’s preparation for exam.

After deciding what one needs to study and how much time is required to spend on each topic, it is time in reality to study. One of the best ways is to make short notes or sum up what one has study. Outlining or highlighting the areas which requires more attention is also a good technique.

Join online test series and offline test series and attempt many questions as you can and check success level.

Refer previous years question paper to know the pattern of the paper

Always refer good books
