I qualified the UGC NET exam in Social Work. I was giving this exam from last 2 years but this time I managed to crack this exam by doing systematically study. I was engaged in private job and hence not able to give proper time on my study but this time I managed all things and cracked the exam. I posted this news on Facebook and I got so many questions from students about tips on how to crack the UGC NET examination in social work. I am posting some of the selected questions on my blog. Hope my tips will be useful to you.
