Mains Booklist

Apart from the above books, I made my own notes based on syllabus, some notes we made collectively in our study group (Mini Shukla, Stanzin Wangyal and Bisaka Dagur), and consistently added to it from regular newspaper reading. Shortly before the Mains, did selective reading of Vision Mains 365 and Vajiram ‘Most probable topics’ for current affairs. Gave importance to answer writing, making own model answers of previous year questions etc.

Note: Apart from the notes, I used Self Study history previous year question solutions, self study history test series solutions and IasHub test series solutions for topics which I had not covered under my notes. Certain sections I also used from Chandrajyoti Singh’s notes available online (AIR28, CSE 2019), esp for sections in medieval and modern for which I did not have notes.

Note: The following are GS notes prepared cumulatively by Mini Shukla (Rank 96 CSE21), Stanzin Wangyal(IRS), Vishakha Dagur and I.

My association with coaching institutions: During graduation: Byjus and Vajiram and Ravi However my serious preparation started after my graduation only, in terms of material I mainly used the basic books enumerated above along with self notes. Jamia Residential Coaching Academy was helpful for me mainly for an amicable study environment, peer group and group study.

GS Test series – ForumIAS for both GS and Essay. I also attempted a couple of tests of Vajiram, as it was associated with RCA for test series in 2021. I found both test series to be good.

History Optional – I took the Combined package of Maps and Solved Previous year question papers from Self Study History which was helpful. Test series- Self Study History(2020), IAS Hub Test series(2021)- both were good in terms of model answer content which could be used to plug gaps in my own notes effectively.
