What if we told you the very 4 subjects you put away from preparing until the last moment can get you above 90 marks in Prelims if you studied them from the right books and followed the correct study plan?

The first subject is Indian Economy. UPSC aspirants are often doubtful of the approach and study materials for this subject, as most of the questions that appear in Prelims require current affairs knowledge and depend upon the aspirant’s grasp in the complexities of our country’s economy. Many aspirants realise that unlike Art and Culture or Modern History, there is no single book that can do justice to the UPSC’s expectations of Indian Economy. Since 2014, the weightage of Indian Economy remained above most of the other subjects.

On the other hand the confusing topics of Science and Technology are the recent applications in this field, space technology, nano technology, diseases and biotechnology. Incidentally, they also have the highest weightage in the number of questions asked.

Polity, as a subject used to be straightforward from the book Laxmikant. But nowadays, topics like the different schedules in Indian Consitution, Parliamentary and bill making procedure are difficult to remember despite revising many times. Conceptual clarity is a must, else it will be difficult to find the right answer for questions like this (Prelims 2021)
