seniors how was the ppr??am deciding to take as optional for 2014 thanks all the best
I am prepare 2015 CSE…….Political science Paper I- Easy
Paper II also easy…….Geography Paper is very tough than Political science
Sneh, I think you have studied political science, each and every point in depth so you feel paper easy. I wrote mains this year, when paper came in hand and I read I felt questions are from familiar but when I started writing that time real difficulties came to fore, I discussed with other same was the opinion. Paper II is my strength I attempted all questions, it was also near to difficult. You write answers without referring sources you will get my point
did u cleared MAINS?
This time UPSC made some changes in all optional’s they have asked applied question. Paper I is known for static questions but this time all were applied questions except Q1. Pol Sci is dynamic subject, and very interesting to study. But theory portion is little difficult, so stress more on section B, here you can score well, and which will help in GS II also.You will need to do practice in both the way applied as well as static. Paper II is more interesting and scoring also.
Dear Anjali mam, My optional is Pol Sci. I find paper 2 very difficult to handle.I do not have guideline to handle International affairs till now which horrifies me daily. Please give me some tips to tackle paper 2 so that I could attempt this paper with confidence.
Your reply is much awaited. Thanks !!!
please don’t call mam, its too great.
See international affairs you read static portion first understand what is foreign policy, why India needs to maintain good relations with other nations, neighbours and world powers, why organizations are formed, and why groups are needed. Try to understand basic things first, for e.g. India China relations, we have border disputes from British times, then it came to fore in 1959, when Dalai Lama take asylum in India. China claims our Tawang territorial area on basis of cultural history but real purpose is strategic link between its west to east part from Ladakh to Arunachal Paradesh bordering areas, these locations will help China to establish direct links with its bordering areas. China feels we support Tibetian’s cause against China’s wishes. So China propped up Pakistan against India then it brought ‘string of pearls’ strategy. And to solve these confrontations between India and China all these things keep happening. Now our relations are multidimensional so and so…..Read world focus for current relations. Listen Rajya Sabha debates India’s world. Second paper is easy, don’t worry about it, if you face any difficulty you can ask here, I will answer it.
