How to Choose optional subject?

Topic created · 2 Posts · 191 Views
  • I will start preparing for UPSC for next year. what criteria should I look upon before selecting optional?

    1. Prior educational background
    2. Some basic affinity
    3. Availability of guidance especially if you don't have a background or weren't good at the subject or its quite technical
    4. Don't go by rumors, popularity, logic of topper scores.
    5. Eliminate the ones you don't want from the list, shortlist some options.
    6. Critically analyze the remaining and shorten list further - consider the time taken to finish the subject.

    For other guideline, senior players would be versed in ideas.
