Hello friends,just a few things to say.First, those who have Indian History as optional must keep it in mind that around 5-8 questions are expected from the Nehruvian era(1947-64).I have not yet published any material on it because for this you have to go through only one book,i.e, India After Independence by Bipan Chandra,There is no need to go through any other book as all the questions asked so far are directly copied from the book.Again you have to read only the following chapters- chapter 1 to chapter 15.Then comes the most important aspect- cut off in preliminary.It is an established fact that for the unreserved category the total marks required to clear Prelims is around 240.However to be in a safer zone you have to get a total of 250+.So if you answer 65 in GS and 75 in optional that sums up to252.5 and that will give u a chance to sit for the main. For the reserved category it is even lower.It is hard to believe, but it is true.So if you target 300+ it is ok, but if you secure much less than that then also you can sail through.So go and get it.Thanks

  1. Hi
    The total marks you mention, does it apply to all the options?
    What do you think cut off will be GS GS?
