    thanks a lot guys for the feedbacks.... @renolds @Glory7 @wackytooth

    how much time does it take to cover punjabi optional?? i m switching from geography to punjabi....and I know its herculean job to cover its syllabus and new research keeps happening in it which leads to new types of questions every year...

    If I am correct, punjabi is more or less a static optional....or does new type of questions are still framed in it??

    punjabi lit is definitely more static compared to geo. but for the last 2 years new type of questions are coming. These require indepth study. Moreover now u have to study complete syllabus and can not leave even a section. 4 months of dedicated study is required.
