how I can prepare for the entrance exam of BA in JNU?

Manisha 20th May, 2020

Hello aspirant

For preparation of any entrance exam you must have thorough idea of syllabus be followed.

For preparation of  JNU entrance exam start by sorting between easy and difficult topics and start by understanding and studying the concepts from topics you find tough . Allocate enough time for each topic . Study thoroughly about important topics. Topics which are important and have high weightage must be given more importance.

During last month of examination you make sure not to start with anything new but rather than just invest time in revising and solving mock tests and sample papers as much as possible.

Maintain a calm while preparing for exam, don't be panic and foremost thing be confident.


When will NTA schedule exams like UGC NET, CSIR, DU, JNU exams ?

We are discussing with the organisations for whom we conduct the test. So discussions are on and very shortly we'll be able to come up with the dates but these dates are going to be after the July dates only.
