Some Specifics Of GS MAINS PAPER 1

Topic created · 2 Posts · 152 Views
  • Guys ,

    I wish to know about your plans for GS 1 prep .

    I have referred to these sources :

    1. Art & Cukture : Read twice for pre . On which parts I have to concentrate for Mains given that this is very bulky and goes into specific details about dances etc , which now-a-days I find are not much asked .

    2 . Geography : GC for physical and Vajiram yellow book for Indian . So , for mains , how to revise them . Puri tu na ho sakti I think . Probable areas to focus upon .

    3 . World History : Did Vision document . I dont think It could be revised much again ? What to do with it ? Return seems very less .

    If I clear pre , I should go about this paper ( given I have not revised anything of above again )

    Also , if I dont clear pre this time should I make notes of above scources !

    In history too , answers in points work ?

    Please Elaborate Seniors !
