Ques 1: How was the CBSE UGC NET Exam July 2018? How would you rate the difficulty level of the Questions?
Answer: As per the Feedback from the NET Aspirants, we have received the following reviews this time.
Majority of the aspirants rated the NET Exam tougher in comparison to Nov 2017 Exam. They said that as expected there were two major changes in the exam this year.
There were two objective type papers – Paper I and Paper II. Previously there were three papers. This year Paper II and III were merged in Paper II itself. Thus, Paper II contained 100 questions.
The duration of Paper 1 was also reduced from 1 hour 15 minutes to 1 hour and for paper 2 the duration was 2 hours.
They shared that both the Papers had a raised difficulty level this year. Even UGC NET General Aptitude QA and Reasoning questions were found to be very difficult to solve for the Arts and Sanskrit aspirants.
Looking at the overall feedback received, we can say that the Paper-II was tough if compared with the last years’ papers.
