Dear Aspirants,
We do understand that you have done your Post Graduation putting up a lot of hard work. You have mastered the subject and have a potential to crack the UGC NET / CSIR exams. You just need a dedicated effort along with proper guidance & study plan to sail through the exam. From this year onwards the Exam Pattern has been modified. With the new changed pattern of exam in place, the strategy to crack the exam need to be different one. Definitely, the command in paper II is essential as it carries 200 marks compared to paper I which carries only 100 marks. But here is the trick. All the students who appear for the UGC NET Exam stay focused more on paper II only as they feel that they are good at. But the paper I is left compromised. But as the we need to score more and score more than our competitors we can do so by outscoring them in Paper I. Paper I is more about General Aptitude, Divergent Thinking, Research Technologies & Teaching Methodologies which can be mastered easily with a systematic study plan. Paper I has a potential to fetch you more than 90% marks with even less than 25% of effort that we put up for Paper II. We are not saying that you should focus less in Paper II, but a conscious division of study plan & time is what we need in order to go beyond UGC NET & hitting the JRF LEAGUE.

HOW TO CRACK UGC NET EXAM :-

With over 10 years our experience in helping the students in cracking the exams we are best placed to help & guide you in your endeavour for a Career in Education Research. Here we do just wish to stress upon few important aspects which are essential in cracking the UGC NET Exam.

A. Comprehensive & Concise Study Material : We do not want to have a content which covers everything but has 20000 pages to read. Rather we need to understand how the exam is being set up & identify the areas where we can score more. It’s a study of 5 Months not a 2 year plan. At IBS, the highly experienced team of JRF qualified teachers have compiled the study material along with the study plan to master the UGC NET Exam. The content is revised every year to match the latest pattern of the exam whether its Paper I or Paper II.

B. Guidance & Mentorship : The experienced team of teachers at IBS have themselves cracked the exam & they fairly understand the importance of Guidance & Mentoring in order to crack the UGC exam. Majority of the faculties are JRF Qualified & all are NET Qualified. It is much more than teaching & class notes. We feel that the students also need the motivation to stay focused as well as individual strategies to clear the exam. And we at IBS are best at both.Our teachers are always there to help you out in achieving your Goal.

C. TEST SERIES : Whether a student is preparing for the UGC NET exam through self study or coaching he needs to assess his preparation before he actually jumps into the final exam. So we advise all of you to test yourself through practice tests being provided by IBS. These mock tests are based upon latest patterns & a student can have a real assessment of his preparation. Based upon his performance in these he can modify his preparation strategy or become more focused.

D. REGULAR ASSESSMENT : Whatever preparation a candidate does is valuable only if it is revised regularly. We do carry out weekly tests for the students for syllabus they have studied till that time. The regular testing makes the students revise their syllabus again & again, there by building up the command of the candidate over the subject.

E. CONISTENT EFFORT : Its very crucial that the student studies consistently otherwise he will not be able to focus & deliver the result. So here in IBS we have devised a Strategy Called ALS technique where the teachers will assign home work for the students along with Assessment Test. So in 5 Months of Study Plan a student is fully focused and has hardly any time to think of something else. This is the reason that we advise students NOT TO JOIN IBS Batches if you can not spare at least 4 to 5 hours of self study apart from 3 hr class at IBS. We are disciplined, We are strict, we are focused & We All Are Winners.
We feel that if you can work on above parameters you are there to succeed in UGC NET / CSIR Exam. We wish you best wishes for your career ahead. Feel free to any sort of assistance or guidance. We are always there to help you and be a part of your Journey towards success.
Thank You

III. Reading Comprehension

Read the following passage and answer the question nos. 1 to 5:

The constitution guarantees every citizen the fundametal right to equality. Yet after 50 yars of independence, just one perusal of the female infant mortality figures, the literacy rates and the employment opportunities for women is sufficient evidence that discrimination exists. Almost predictably, this gender bias is evident in our political system as well. In the 13th Lok Sabha, there were only 43 women MPs out of a tota of 543; it is not a surprising figure, for never has women’s representation in Parliament been more than 10 per cent.

Historically, the manifestos of major political parties have always encouraged women’s participation. It has been merely a charade. So, women’s organizations, denied a place on merit, opted for the last report: a reservation of seats for women in parliament and State Assemblies. Parties, which look at everything with a vote bank in mind, seemed to endorse this. Alas, this too was a mirage.

But there is another aspect also. At a time when caste is the trump card, some politicians want the bill to inclulde further quotas for women from among minorities and backward castes. There is more to it. A survey shows that there is a general antipathy towards the bill. It is actually a classic case of doublespeak: in public, politicians were endorsing women’s reservation but in the backrooms or Parliament, they were busy sabotaging it. The reasons are clear: Men just don’t want to vacate their seats of power.

(a) Political system
(b) Social behaviour
(c) Individual behaviour
(d) Behaviour of a group of people

(a) Lust for power
(b) Desire to serve the nation
