Inspired by the unmoderated yet healthy discussions on this [PRELIMS-2017 Revision Mode] Current Affairs – Subjectwise Topics list thread started by Arun and ably managed by the community, the team has come up with a novel way of revising Prelims specific factoids.
About a month back or so, Nooreen worked on a series of static theory listicles – Prelims listicles so that you get quick reference tables which have High Yielding Prelims worthy information, classifications and statistics in one place.
While doing so we realised that such one time efforts suffer from a twin problem of:
- Lack of frequent updates: Schemes, Reports, Committees, MoUs etc. need more agile monitoring and timely edits to maintain their relevance
- Missing out on crowd wisdom: Your intense activity on the Prelims 2017 Revision thread made us re-affirm our faith in the idea of collective intelligence. We realised that if we could take help of some tools and enable you to pool in together, not only will we be able to multiply your efforts but also be able to compile them better for re-use and ease of retention
So, this is what happened 5 days ago:
Here’s what our effort has yielded:
Click to access the google excel [It is shared on view only mode] so you will have to download and save a local copy
This is still a WIP but at least it is in some shape that we could release a part of it to you and take your feedbacks.
Here’s how it looks:
All info in horizontal one line span + Ability to filter across ministry + Added N4S
Appeal to all:
- Do let us know in comments if you find this representation useful. If not, why? That will help us come up with something better
- We need students who can help us with more such prelims worthy listicles. While we complete this govt. schemes excel – we want to work upon more such useful stuff which mimics UPSC’s trend. Pranav mentioned about some useful compilations here
- Please comment on if you would like to actively support. If you have some ready reference material, let us know that as well! We will reach out to you. Don’t leave your email or number here. We will ask you later.
