Applying “Pareto Principle” in CSIR NET & GATE exam Preparation

CSIR NET & GATE are one of the Most coveted exams and folks do everything they can to simplify their preparation.
While interacting with one of the CSIR NET Toppers of BioTecNika we discovered that he had smartly applied this principle and not just succeeded but succeeded with top Rank. So what did he do? How did he do it? Lets Understand:
We all know how it feels to be inefficient: spending many hours “studying” without getting much productive work done can be incredibly frustrating, and is a drain on time and energy for students everywhere. What if you could spend LESS time studying, but still get MORE done in your day? If this sounds too good to be true, then prepare to be pleasantly surprised. The secret to maximising productivity is The Pareto Principle, otherwise known as The 80:20 Rule. Pareto was an Italian economist in the early 1900s, and he declared that in many aspects of life, 80% of effects come from 20% of causes. In other words, 80% of your CSIR NET & GATE exam success will come from 20% of the work you put in:
Before we apply this Principle, let’s understand the challenges before an Aspirant:

  • Huge Syllabus
  • Limited Time
  • Practicing Quality Questions
  • Revision

What is Pareto Principle?
It states that 80% of your results come from 20% of your efforts2017-09-27_08-55-52
How to Apply this in Time Management?
Applying Pareto Principle in Time Management is pretty simple. Identify those times of the day where you are most actively involved in studying without any distractions. You will find that out of 10 Hrs you study every day you are most productive in just 2 Hrs ( approx ) and thus you need to focus there. Want to know more about Time Management Techniques?

Attend my Free Webinar on Time Management Techniques today.

How to Apply this in Managing Vast Syllabus?
Did I just say that the Syllabus is Vast? Yes, it is. Let’s accept the fact that studying everything included in the syllabus of CSIR NET or GATE can result in 5 Years of Just pure studying, leave aside the Preparation & Practice. The syllabus is just the broad guiding principle and you need to effectively apply the Pareto Principle in identifying those areas which are important topics for CSIR NET or GATE exam.
How to maximise that productive 20%
The key to successfully applying the Pareto Principle to CSIR NET & GATE Preparation work is making the most of the 20% of your time that will produce 80% of your results. Here are a few ways that you can ensure maximum productivity when you study: Use the Pomodoro Technique Set yourself a
Here are a few ways that you can ensure maximum productivity when you study: Use the Pomodoro Technique Set yourself a
Use the Pomodoro Technique
Set yourself a 25-minute timer, and work on your chosen task until the timer rings. Take a short break before you start your next 25 minutes. Once you’ve completed for ‘Pomodoros’, take a longer break (20-30 minutes).
Minimise distractions
Use apps to minimise distractions during these 25-minute bursts of work. Strict Workflow, a Google Chrome extension, allows you to create a blacklist of websites to block for 25 minutes at a time. Similarly, Forest occupies your phone screen with a growing tree seedling for half an hour, which will die if you swipe off the app before your work time is complete!
Choose a Study space
Consistently studying in the same place will help you to condition yourself to concentrate more readily when you sit down to work. Find a location with plenty of natural light, a large work surface, and as few distractions as possible. Why not try your dining table, a spot near a window in a library, or your bedroom desk?

Be clear about what you want to achieve

Before each Pomodoro begins, have clearly in mind what work you want to get done in the next 25 minutes. Write a list of the tasks you need to complete this week, and break each one into small steps of around 25 minutes in length to be used as Pomodoros. Cross these off as you go.


Isolate the 20% of the Topics which can have an impact of up to 80% increase in your CSIR NET Score.

How to make best Notes for CSIR NET / GATE Exam ?

Preparing for any entrance exam means the following:

  • Preparing & collecting Best notes for the exam
  • Studying according to the Time Table
  • Practicing More & More Questions

While we all are unique and we all have different study habits, We need to follow some general guidelines so that we do not get carried away by the vast ocean of syllabus and stick to those topics which helps us qualify the exam.

In this article i am going to cover the 1st Point and second point. i think the 3rd Point can be automatically covered if you opt for BioTecNika’s CSIR NET Coaching / Online Study Material / Printed Study Material or Test series.

  1. Preparing & Collecting Best Notes for CSIR NET Exam / GATE Exam: In one of the articles on BioTecNika earlier we had mentioned about the Top 20 standard books which you can refer and also mentioned about the Study Material which Biotecnika can provide you. However the Best notes are the self compiled notes because you make it as per your own needs. But i have seen students often having the following challenges:
    • What to keep and what to skip in the notes: This can be best answered the aspirant himself, However your mentors at Biotecnika can come handy when knowing the importance and weightage of that topic in CSIR NET.
    • Mobility of Notes: What is the use of Notes if they can not be with you 24X7 ? But can you really carry so many papers with you wherever you go ? Watch the Webinar below to learn how you can make your notes mobile
    • Distraction Free Learning: Watch the Webinar on how to keep yourself distraction free when you are studying
    • How much is too much ?
      • Many a times, over enthusiastic aspirants stress themselves and end up pausing their preparation
      • The secret is prolonged sustained steady studying under the guidance of experienced mentors
