  2. That was very helpful!
    Sir I have a query , although it is not related to the video but I need to know this.

    Recently I was watching a video on how to select optional subject & in that video it was emphasized that most of the questions appearing in GS paper 4 are based on Sociology and Public Administration & not considering these subjects as optional would cost us those marks because its difficult to comprehend them & difficult to answer without having a sound knowledge of these subjects. I don't know how these subjects really are but I have a knack for Philosophy and find myself comfortable. I also saw the questions came in Philosophy's paper and I could relate with them. So what shall I do? If I don't take Pub Ad or Sociology will it cost me marks in GS paper ! Please help!

  3. If i follow similar tricks for memorising everything, there will be like 100s of tricks and then it would be like now make a trick for these 100 of tricks. This fucked up shit is what I dont like about Indian education system. People should tell "dude listen go get a map and even if you familiarise yourself with the location of the countries and read carefully about the orgs even once then it would stay in your mind for long enough to write in exam". But no here people say use some fucked up IPL mnemonics to mug up shit and vomit from your mouth in the exam and then go build a shitty country
