Major Highlights of the UGC NET 2020 Paper 1 Analysis

 

In 2020, General Paper 1 was simple as compared to the last year. Candidates who had their basics clear should have found this paper easy and must have scored good marks.

Here are some of the major highlights of the NTA NET 2020 Exam:

As per the students' review, the overall difficulty of the UGC NET General Paper 1 was Easy to Moderate.

Almost 60% of the questions were based on theory, while 40% were Numerical type.

As per the candidates’ review, most of the questions were asked from: -

DI (Data Interpretation)

Mathematical Reasoning

Research Aptitude

Teaching Aptitude

Students found some topics easy like Reading Comprehension, Mathematical Reasoning, Coding & Decoding, ICT, Ratio & Percentage, etc.
