HISTORY OPTIONAL - DAY 4

Hi folks,

After the history optional, just one thing I can say is that I am relieved.Except some unheard names in the map question, the entire paper was pretty ok.In fact after coming to know that the pub ad or pol sc and geo papers were extremely tough,I was bit of hopeless.In fact this year I had read almost the entire syllabus and in the process the only thing happened was that I could not remember a single word that I had studied.But believe me once I saw the questions, things suddenly started getting well.Indeed the only change they have made in the paper is that they have split the long questions.So the questions which earlier carried 60 marks now were of 30 marks only.This made the paper a bit lengthy.But at least manageable.In fact certain questions I was expecting this year like Vietnam war or Russian revolution and it clicked.Moreover, this time there were certain straight forward questions which I have not seen in the earlier years.So there was change.But it was not bad.Anyways, I am giving the questions here in short.
