Can geography optional be done after prelims....??

Can geography optional be done after prelims....??


  • Nope.
  • It requires 8 months at least, IMO.
  • @Pnkjsrma
    No is not an answer but its better if you complete major portions before Pre.
    On 19th June things will suddenly change and the pressure for all the GS papers including Essay and Ethics will start to increase which will make it impossible for you to start new things.
    Abhi time hai, acche se 4-5 hours daily optional ke liye nikal lo, atleast till 10th may.
  • @Pnkjsrma
    If you are having doubt ki mai kaise starr karun ya kya books padhu then its better to buy one class notes, I will recommend Neetu Singh's one and finish reading them one by one(unit by unit).
    You can also reach out to some Teachers in ORN and interact with them as to how you can do it in the given time.

    Bottom line, dont ask if it can be done. Take and get it done! atb!
  • It can't be done 899%
