Although there are many coaching institutes in India and especially in Delhi, each one promising to provide quality education, but students have another story to tell. On One of the many occasions, when a call to a query from the ASTRAL’s website was answered, it was learnt that the student at the other end had infact payed the amount to one of the Coaching Institutes in Delhi, but was later left in the lurch as the Institute was unable to run the class as no faculty was available, and neither were they in a position to provide her with the Course Material. She of course had to withdraw from there. When the same student agreed to come down to ASTRAL, the first thing she got was the course material(after making the payment for the Semester Course) followed by regular updates on the Class Schedules thence. To students like her distance is not the matter. The matter is the quality of teaching and ASTRAL’s experience in providing that quality, and their constant engagement in making it better and better day by day, is what stands them apart. 99.99% of the students who have already benefitted from their decision on joining ASTRAL EDUCATION, comprises of students not only from Gurgaon, but also from Delhi, Noida, Greater Noida, Faridabad, Rohini, Rohtak, Sirsa, Agra, Bangaluru, Chennai, Assam, J&K, Kerala, Pune, Mumbai, Nepal, Gujarat, In fact Pan India.

To get through any exams, it is essential to study. IF the student does not study hard, it is difficult to pass through the exam. “Practice makes a Man Perfect” is an adage, which is very true. Practice alone qualifies us to be better and better. However, there are few strategies which can be followed while studying, especially so in the case of UGC NET, as it requires a lot of practice to answer objective type questions in less time.

To appear in the UGC Net, it is must that the student starts preparing well in time, for which an estimate of four to six months is very much essential.

The student must know the syllabus thoroughly. Each topic is important and needs to be prepared thoroughly. There is no room for leniency and prolongation. Each topic is essential for fetching the marks in the exam.

Talking about the pattern of the paper, two papers out of three will be based on the subject of choice, and one will be based on General Awareness and aptitude (Paper I). One needs to prioritize the subjects in such a way that one has a good command over the subjects. Questions on General Awareness and Aptitude can practiced by solving sample papers or previous years papers to know exactly how they come, and for the other two papers (Pare II and III), one needs to be thorough with their subjects.

It is just not reading that is important, but also making notes of the important topics, so that they are helpful during the revision session.

The more the previous year papers(PYP) are solved the better it is. This really gives an idea as to how questions appear and you can make notes accordingly. There would be some questions which may not be understood, so guidance and coaching is must. ASTRAL EDUCATION provides Study Material comprising of Unit Wise Notes/Exercises, PYP, Model Test Papers/Sample Papers and Question Bank comprising of 5000 plus Objective Type Questions for all the papers, Exercises, Model Test, PYP, so that the student has all that it takes to clear the Test. All it needs is practice.

Last but not the least is the Time Management Skills, which can only be mastered through regular practice. Keep a Time watch and set the time limit. Start Answering and see how many questions were you able to answer in say One hour. This practice will give you the exact picture, if you really need to increase your speed in answering.
