Okay guys, let's start from tomorrow. Since We will be required to share answers, it's better if we work on telegram.

Please join https://t.me/joinchat/NiZLqxpzk_N0Z6LdOYdzsQ

We'll start with ancient history(archaeological sources + Prehistory &Prorogues), hopefully to be done within 10 days.

All of us are supposed to contribute, even if it's your first attempt.its good that we only have 5-6 people, easier to stay focussed. Cheers

Balayan sir's test series is the best provided you follow the discussions rigorously. However, making micro notes from the notes of any class is really a bad idea. Try to cover at least one section of each paper from the reference books and for the other two sections you can rely on notes due to time constraints. As far as History optional is concerned you really need to master one section from each paper to go above 270 marks. And I would suggest you to focus on medieval and modern India.
