What are the most suitable OPTIONAL SUBJECTs for a SELF PREPARING - ENGINEERING background student?

Topic created · 3 Posts · 324 Views
  • Optional Subject

  • Judging by your DP and your signature I assume you are from Karnataka and already seem to have mastery over Vachana Sahitya which forms major chunk of syllabus, so Kannada Literature is a great option!
    Ignore this if you arent from Karnataka

  • Are you confused in the optional subject selection for UPSC Mains? and thinking which optional subject is best i.e. Sociology? or History? or Geography? or Anthropology? or Public Administration? or Literature?……………………

    Consider these point in the selection of optional subject and take a final decision –

    • Background/Graduation subject (is the best choice)

    • Interest

    • Availability of material nearby you/Online

    • Guidance by seniors in that subject (if available)

    • Or Select optional within 2-3 months of reading all GS.
