UPSC Exam Optional Batches at Synergy

Rather than selecting an optional without having knowledge of other subjects or without knowing your own writing and presentation styles and thinking patterns, it is better to delay this decision. Every subject has its own demand (i.e. thinking pattern, writing style, presentation techniques etc.). Your personality should suit to it.

While preparing for GS Mains, you will be also preparing for History, Geography, Anthropology, Public Administration, Political Science, Sociology etc. It will help you in deciding your interest in a particular optional subject properly. It will prove more informed and rational decision afterwards.
Following are some basic criteria:

  • Interest and understanding in the subject about which you will come to know when you study for GS Mains
  • Analysis of the syllabus and previous years’ question papers of the shortlisted subjects
  • Writing style and presentation techniques suitable for that particular optional (about which you will know once you start writing for GS and essay)
  • Thinking Pattern expected for a particular optional (you will come to know about yours after you start preparing for GS.)
  • Availability of study material
  • Availability of guidance
  • Weightage of optional in GS
  • Graduation background
  • Apart from this, some give importance to the length of the syllabus…. Which is an unfound criterion
