1. Start with the NCERT: It’ll serve two purposes first you’d able to reassess your level of familiarity with the material and secondly it’d act as a catalyst in consolidating the remnants of Psychology which has decayed over a long period of time.

2. Understanding the Exam Pattern: Pattern Of Examination

3. Preparing for Exam: Time needed  for cracking UGC NET JRF Psychology exam depends upon when are you starting to prepare. Ideally one should prepare 6-8 months before the exam. 4-6 hours is enough if you are using them in proper direction. Otherwise students who start preparing along with job or in less span of time should factor in the other factors and increase the time frame for preparation. Candidates preparing for UGC NET JRF Psychology  are expected to have good knowledge of Psychology. For this purpose, the candidate should focus on preparing from NCERT books.

3. Time Management: Clubbed with hard work and determination, time management is the key to crack the entry – level test for the UGC NET JRF Psychology . Besides being able to strategize time by focusing on the easier subjects first followed by the tough ones; one should also know the skill to attempt all questions in given time. It means a candidate has to spill not more than 36 seconds per question. Try attempting 80% questions with 90 % accuracy to be a step closer to your goal.

4. Need Help: UGC NET JRF Psychology  can be easily cracked with right effort in right direction and working on your weak points. If student needs help in putting desired efforts in right direction they can call for counselling at Quest Education for proper guidance, regarding study material, books, coaching etc.


  • STRATEGY 1: Going through all  previous papers is first advice to any student preparing for UGC NET JRF Psychology . Go through assorted model test papers. The strategy behind this is you should be able to relate with the questions analytically and derive a pattern. Therefore first booster strategy is getting acquainted with all topics related to questions asked in previous years.
  • STRATEGY 2: Study all Probable questions there are good teachers in all parts of country, especially Delhi is hub of well trained and very experienced teachers who have good experience in teaching. Try to get all those probable questions from those teachers and study that too.
  • STRATEGY 3: Practice, Practice and Practice attempt as many mock test as possible. Even at home, when you attempt mock test papers pay special attention to maintain the time factor. More practice will make you more perfect. Try to identify your weakness and try eliminating them through practice or external help.
6. Refer to the Book list.

To get selected for JRF you need to score very high and that would require an indepth study, therefore, each topic should be studied in great detail.
  • If you have not done a serious study till now then read and reread Atkinson & Hilgard’s Introduction to Psychology.

  • For basic conceptual clarity do refer to NCERT books of Psychology.
  • The most indispensable tool that is required is a dictionary of Psychology. Either Oxford or Penguin Dictionary of Psychology would suffice. Whenever you encounter a new concept, refer to the dictionary it will clarify that.
  • The second unit in both papers is ‘Learning Processes’ for that I would recommend Mazur’s Learning and Behavior.
  • For personality consult either Schultz or Hall and Lindzey. The latter is better.
  • To study the physiological bases of behaviour refer to Pinel’s Biopsychology or Carlson’s Foundations of Physiological Psychology.
  • Matlin’s book Cognition and  Sternberg’s Cognitive Psychology give a detailed account of Perceptual Processes, Working Memory, Longterm Memory, Problem  Solving and Creativity.
  • For Research Methodology, Measurement and Testing A K Singh’s book on Research Methodology is a good one but it does not cover all the topics.
  • Siegel’s Nonparametric Statistics is one of the best for Nonparametric tests.
  • In my view Hogg and Vaughan’s Social Psychology is better than Baron and Byrne’s Social Psychology because it provides rich theoretical material that would help in answering questions.
