  • Without coaching it is not possible specially if you do not have any back ground. But non of the coachings are doing well.
  • it is difficult but not impossible.. I myself doing self study for philosophy
  • Just start ur preparation with Indian philosophy... 1 month is sufficient for indian philosophy
