By Mohit Choudhary|Updated : December 20th, 2021

Preparation Strategy UGC NET Computer Science 2022: The next NTA UGC NET 2022 will be conducted in May/June 2022. This gives the candidates approximately 4-5 months' time for their preparation. So, here is a study plan for the UGC NET exam for all the aspirants who plan to write this exam in May/June next year. Candidates must check this UGC NET study plan thoroughly and try to follow it properly to boost their NET exam preparation.                                           

To qualify for UGC NET, one must be thoroughly aware of the syllabus. There are two papers; Paper 1 is compulsory and common to all streams, and paper 2 is based on your optional, i.e., Computer Science.

Check the syllabus (UGC NET Computer Science Entire Syllabus) thoroughly and stick it in front of your study table. Start preparing unit-wise, and I would suggest you refer to NCERT only as the questions asked in the exam are very conceptual theory-based, and practically based. 

More, download the last 4-5 years' question papers (UGC NET previous years' question papers) and check the type of questions asked.

Marks Strategy:- The total marks of the exam are 300, and to clear JRF (Junior Research Fellowship), you need to score at least 190+ (General Category) and 215-220 marks for Assistant Professor.
