[CSE P-M-I 2017] Art and Culture Preparation

Given the ever increasing competition and uncertainty, it is high time to take each and every part of the syllabus seriously. It is no longer the time when one used to ignore Art and Culture and hope to get a good rank in UPSC. This post is to discuss various facets of preparing the Art and Culture portion. The discussions may include -
a. Material List
b. Approach
c. Answer writing (Mains)

Also, the ones with interview experience, can share the questions asked by the panels. Try to keep the discussion within the above mentioned contours. Any relevant issue is definitely welcome.

  • What topics one should read from CCRT website? Seniors please enlighten.

    everything. there is a lot of interconnectedness between the topics and unless you are broad in your coverage, you will not be able to answer the questions that especially are designed on the basis of such interconnectedness.

    Any review of Nitin Singhania's TMH book? Especially from Mains POV.

  • CCRT is the most comprehensive and important source for culture. Though it is lengthy but do it thoroughly, it will be very useful for both prelims and mains point of view.

    Read that only for prelims and Mains..was able to solve questions in prelims and 1 question in mains. It will cover the fundamentals, which probably every source will cover. Read it if you have no time.
    Prelims - 2, Mains - 1, Interview - 0.
