    Life Science is an area of study concerned with the technical understanding of biotechnology & biology that offers a chance to learn each and every fact and detail regarding human beings, microbes, plants, and, animals.  This national level exam is a single paper test sectioned into three parts: Part A, B & C. • Part A: This section is the same for all subjects of the CSIR NET exam. Here, your eligibility is determined with research aptitude, quantitative reasoning & analysis, and general science skills. • Part B: This part involves general questions mostly from topics provided in the CSIR NET life science syllabus. • Part C: This section ascertains the student’s proficiency in scientific theories and their applications. The paper shall be of an analytical type wherein the student is anticipated to apply the theoretical concepts to find an answer to the scientific question. This is a very tricky question. It would depend upon your inclination and study. All units are important because even a single question framed from a topic that can fetch you a score is worthwhile. And each question from any unit requires an in depth study and understanding of that unit ultimately. Focus on the following sections. Assign at least three days for each topic depending on the difficulty you feel. 1. General Aptitude General aptitude is the same for all subjects in the CSIR NET exam. It mainly covers three areas: Graphical analysis & data interpretation, reasoning, and numerical ability.  a. Graphical Analysis & Data Interpretation – Tabulation, Pie-Chart, Graphical analysis: Line & bar graph, measures of dispersion, mode, median, and mean.  b. Reasoning – Puzzles, Ranking & arrangement, Clock & calendar, Directions & distance, coding-decoding, series formation, and so on.  c. Numerical Ability – Trigonometry, Mensuration, Geometry, Probability, Permutation & combinations, Time & Work, Time speed & distance, Mixture & Alligation, partnership, Proportion & variation, Ratio, Compound interest, Simple interest, Profit & loss, Percentage, Logarithms, Surds & Indices, Sequence & Series, Quadratic equations, HCF & LCM average, Number & Simplification, and so on. There are thirteen units under CSIR NET Life Science. Detailed contents from each unit are described below. Give 4-5 days to each topic. Topic  1 Molecules and their Interaction Relevant to Biology 2 Cellular Organization 3 Fundamental Processes 4 Cell Communication and Cell Signaling 5 Developmental Biology 6 System Physiology – Plant 7 System Physiology – Animal 8 Inheritance Biology 9 Diversity of Life Forms 10 Ecological Principles 11 Evolution and Behavior 12 Applied Biology 13 Methods in Biology How to study ? • Categorize Units based on your difficulty level and their importance in the CSIR NET Life science exam • Design an effective Unit wise Study Time Table Accordingly, something that suits your daily schedule. • Start with units that you feel is easier for you to understand so that when you gain confidence you can move ahead. • Slowly move to other units based on the number of questions asked from them in the CSIR past year NET Exam – refer to previous year question papers to plan this. • Make a list of important topics from the syllabus from each unit and prepare them first • After Each unit, do a revision & attempt a Mock test Depending upon the pattern of previous years' CSIR papers, the topics likely to be asked (the likely topics keep changing with every examination) start becoming evident. Nevertheless the question paper still remains unpredictable but somewhere it puts you in a better state of preparation and is useful in solving at least a few questions correctly. The best strategy is to study or at least go through all the units and then perfect the topics you are good at and even the ones you're not so good at as much as you can. Practice MCQs for all the units irrespective and do not neglect the aptitude questions of section A. Avoid negative marking at all costs. There are no shortcuts to success! Best Wishes
