UPSC Civil Services Prelims Exam Syllabus 2021.
Every smart UPSC Aspirant knows that limited study material can only make them reach their final goal. Now in this article, we’re going to discuss what is the limited and the best material. Please note that NCERT provided in the download section must read basic books, so not discussed.
Indian History, Art, and Culture: Read Ancient and Modern History thoroughly, as Ancient History is not that long and is a favorite of UPSC. Commission also asks questions from Modern History and Medieval History in Prelims. But If you’re already very strong in Medieval history, then only I’ll suggest you go with that as of now.
Indian Modern History is important from the point of Prelims and the Mains Examination. Ancient and Medieval History is not included in the main syllabus, but it is in prelims if you’ve enough time to prepare.
