As the preliminary examinations are now over, aspirants must emphasize on how to prepare for the mains examination with only a few days around the corner.
As we saw that preliminary this year was not followed on the same pattern as the previous years rather this time it was mainly focused on Statement based Questions in which aspirant’s extensive knowledge was checked. Vastness was witnessed in this year paper in which many different statements from various topics were combined in a single questions and the aspirant had to choose answers from the varying sequences of options provided in the paper.
This change in trend also provides a hint such that the vastness of the syllabus can be predicted for mains also. But, this doesn’t mean that now an aspirant has to choose various different sources to study the same thing .This in turn would only hamper his or her valuable time .Smartness would only be in limiting the resources only to the extent and relevance of the syllabus for HAS .
