It must be noted that candidates will not allowed to leave the examination hall between the two papers to be conducted.

However, candidates will be allowed to enter the examination centres from 7 am in the morning itself.
There are some last minute things that one must keep in mind before leaving for the UGC NET 2018 examination.
Here are important instructions for UGC NET 2018:
Do not forget your Admit Card: This is the most important document which candidates need to carry inside the examination hall. The admit card contains details such as roll number, examination venue, exam duration, name and other important information. If one fails to bring the same, he/she will not be allowed to appear for the exam. The candidates should also bring a photo identity card.
Examination venue: Jot down the address of your examination centre on a small piece of paper which you may carry till you reach the same. Do this before leaving your house so that incase you’re not familiar with the routes, you may inquire about the written address and find it. You may also keep a track of the route through google maps on your cell.
Reach on time: It is always better to reach the examination venue earlier than reaching late due to traffic or any other issues and missing out giving the paper. Frisking will be done properly at the main entry gate of the exam center in order to ensure fair conduct of examination. The candidates are required to report at the center 2 hrs 30 minutes prior to commencement of examination for the process.
Watches not allowed: Candidates should note that a wall clock will be put in all the examination halls/rooms to keep an eye on time. Hence, the candidates are not allowed to wear any type of watch in the hall/room.
Items banned: Possession of certain items may result in disqualification of the candidates. The use of calculators of log tables is not allowed permitted. Other banned items include — mobile phones, pagers, electronic devices, bits of paper, books/note books etc. Those found in possession of any of these items will be treated as practicing unfair means and his/her result will not be declared.
