  • I have written mains twice with psy optional. I would suggest you guys to read mp sir written notes. Follow Baron and ncerts for value addition. Capture daily life examples, research studies and theories to incorporate in your answers.

    Mp sir notes is best. He has collated info from many sources. Multiple revisions of his notes is required to master psy knowledge.

    Don't waste time on books like cognitive psychology. Most of social psychology by Baron is covered in main Baron book itself.
  • Just gave the paper. It was very easy if one has studied under Pathak sir's guidance. Esp Paper 1. Although I couldn't complete the paper because of my speed.
  • Can u pls upload the paper.

  • Hi Team we are about six now kindly join this group so that we can have many ideas to contribute.

    lets try the first Q from paper 1, 2015, which i believe was asked from the chapter 1

    Why it is important to understand psychological process for other disciplines of social science?

    Take your time to answer the Q, once the answer is written mail it to me we shall review each other answers
