Preparation Strategy for CSIR NET Life Science PART A
- Practice each topic per day for a minimum of 30 mins
- First, 15 minutes go through& understand the formulas, and the next 15 min and the remaining time can be used for solving questions from that topic – at least 10 questions
- Do an analysis of PYQ’a and understand what kind of questions are mostly repeated and give special emphasis on solving those.
- If you find some topics difficult to understand, like trigonometry, quadratic equation, etc., we recommend you skip those topics and move to others.
- Master those topics first, which are easy to solve in less time by applying simple formulas.
- Solving PART A from PYQs will give you ample experience to attempt a good number of questions from this section in the upcoming CSIR NET life science exam.
- A CSIR NET PART A formula sheet with all important formulas will be very handy and help in quick revision – Download it below.
- Attempting Mock Tests for PART A is a must.
