When you ask someone what GS 1 consists of, the answer would be Modern Indian History, World History, Geography and so on… But, this is not the story of the question paper. Analysis of previous year’s papers suggests that Social issues and Geography together occupy two-thirds of the questions. And a little room is left for history and other subjects.
This book tries to address this most important issue. Based on the syllabus provided by UPSC, we’ve divided subjects into sections and subsections and classified all the questions since the new pattern (2013) into these. Then, we also analysed the weightage of each section and illustrated using graphs.
This knowledge helps you prioritize areas of preparation. It saves a lot of time and also provides a question bank for practice.
It is said that a goal without a plan is just a wish, our book will certainly help you in better planning.
Why only 2013-2022 and not older questions?
The pattern of the UPSC Mains exam has changed drastically in 2013. Hence to consider question papers prior to that is not just burdensome but also misleading. Further, 10 years is sufficient time to trace a new pattern and have plenty of practice questions.
