Understanding the exam pattern in depth is crucial as it assists in understanding the factors that affect the exam format, the length of the test, the total amount of questions asked, what topics the exam will consist of, etc.

The exam pattern is determined by the National Testing Agency (NTA) There aren't any major changes that are made each year. But, minor revisions are being made to the exam structure.

Beginning to begin UGC examination pattern for 2023 There are two exams within the syllabus: Paper 1 and Paper 2.

In contrast, Paper 1 which is common for all applicants, is carries 100 marks. The subject of Paper 2 can be selected by the candidate depending on their graduation subject and is worth a total of 200 marks.

The test is conducted online mode, and a duration of 3 hours are allotted to finish both questions.

One interesting thing to consider is the absence of negative marking on either of these papers.

When it comes to the level of difficulty for both papers Paper 1 is considerably less difficult to write than 2. 2.

If you're thinking of taking this UGC NET examination in the month of December in 2023 Check the eligibility requirements.
