TIMETABLE : Integrated Approach to UPSC Prelims + Mains – 2015 – A Self Study Guide (July 8 to July 22)

TIMETABLE : Integrated Approach to UPSC Prelims + Mains – 2015 – A Self Study Guide (July 8 to July 25)

Previous Timetables

Self Study Guide

In this timetable we will be covering:

  • NCERT Class XI Indian Economic Development
  • NCERT Class XII Macroeconomics
  • NCERT Class XI Fine Art (Introduction to Indian Art)
  • NIOS – Indian Art and Culture
  • Economic Survey – 2015 (Volume 1 and 2)

Next Fifteen days will be hectic for you. We had told you that we would cover Ramesh Singh selectively, but looking at this year’s Economic Survey, we felt that the latter is more relevant to Prelims (+ Mains) than Ramesh Singh (This is still useful). Moreover, it is impossible to cover this book in such a short duration.

As you already know that the UPSC Civil Services Preliminary Exam syllabus has the following topics related to Economy part:

Economic and Social Development Sustainable Development, Poverty, Inclusion, Demographics, Social Sector initiatives

The above mentioned sources adequately cover these topics in much more detail than required. However, reading them in-depth helps in Mains as well. Therefore, it is good to read them with utmost seriousness now itself.

Along with Economy part, we are also covering Art and Culture from two authentic sources – NCERT and NIOS. If you read these sources, you should be able to solve most of the questions asked in UPSC Preliminary Exam on the topics of Indian Art and Culture.

Some of you might wonder: How to complete so much in so less time?

If you read any source with extreme urgency and purpose, you usually read them better and comprehend better. It is possible to complete these targets within stipulated time. Well, there is no short-cut too. You have to complete them anyway. Please don’t listen to naysayers. If you want to complete these targets, you WILL complete them. Trust us.

Following is the Timetable for the Next Fifteen Days. Hope you will enjoy this. Meanwhile, let us know how useful were previous timetables and our questions. Your feedback is our motivation. Thank you.
