Spend as much time as you can on preparation. A minimum of 3 to 6 hours is essential in a day. A minimum of 2 to 4 months of preparation is mandatory while appearing for competitive exams like the UGC NET Examination. The most important aspect of preparation is covering all topics; do not leave any out, and if you believe a topic is difficult, try to cover it first. Give the same importance to the general awareness and aptitude questions while preparing the subject topics. Try to collect the maximum number of previous question papers of UGC NET Political Science and try to solve the maximum number of papers.

Well, I really don't think so. But you can opt for private tutors to cover your syllabus. In fact, you can opt for home tuition also.
