From where and how are you covering Section B of Paper I? I never covered it in a comprehensive manner and I personally find it the most difficult part of PSIR.

Selective topics could be done from BL Fadia(sm, pg)

Freedom movement, perspective from Sekhar Bandopadhyay or Bipin chandra

Selective constitution topics from Bidyut Chakraborty or there is also another good book Oxford Handbook on Indian politics i guess

^^all these are good but very tough to complete in limited time

Thank you man. I'm only appearing in 2021 so I have some time. I guess I'll go through these sources selectively.

@dragon_rider use the books selectively..as per topic from syllabus ..otherwise you will end up wasting lot of time.

Paper 2 was surprising, but then I was expecting it after the last year's experience. After a point, there's not much we can do in our preparation. So, I'm content.

dont know what to make of paper 2(have not written a mock on it), lengthy tha ,missed a ten marker , misquoted 1-2 facts, otherwise i had option of using a lot of IR thinkers which i guess  should cover for  the mistakes. paper 1 was fine.

Hey, 1 was fine. Rushed in the end a bit on the part-B 15 markers but I think I wrote what was needed. Paper 2 was weird because there was so little theory but I think I managed, tried to quote people wherever possible. However I still don’t know for sure what a good answer is, because SRIAS evaluation is so random. Don’t have any confidence except self-confidence. Feel content :)

This telegram group was a lifesaver for 2B: https://t.me/lukmaaniaspsir

They post articles regularly. I had virtually no current affairs notes collected for 2B, so I just went in the group and searched country names and made notes and quotes from the 2-3 articles there for each. Saved a lot of time and they’re good, useful articles.
