  • Department of histroy has separate entrance examination and all have to sit for the same.
    From last year onwards it is on the objective basis.

    Is there seperate syllabus for History graduates and non-History graduates? And can we get any previous year papers somehow?

    Brother, I am no one to question you decision to do full time MA (History) from DU.

    But if you are doing it only to gainfully spend time (vis a vis preparing full time), I would advice you to rethink your decision... I also tried this option (MA-IR, JNU) after my second mains but soon found it to be a big impediment in preparation... And left it...

    I am taking that you want some stability immediately- personally and financially. It'll much better that you go for some quick resulting exams like Management Trainee in PSUs, SBI, IBPS, RRB PO etc. They'll stabilize your boat in a much much better way...

    Just a thought... (Please ignore if I was unable to read your situation correctly)
    All the best...

    I appreciate your suggestion. Its Just that I started to like history (also my optional) and wanted to get some formal in it. I agree with you that it might create some impediments in preperation so I am also thinking about applying to SOL-DU.
    And regarding qucik resulting exams I appeared for CGL 2016 and waiting for final results I dont think I need to appear for any other exam.
    Thanx anyways. :smile:

    it depends upon the course. For eg in sociology, geography, economics and commerce which are part of D school , you have to be hell regular because they maintain certain standard.
    other PG courses are less rigorous however they too have their own preferred time table and course shedule.It wont be that easy to manage with civil preparation.
    yes it matters a lot when you choose your career in that particular stream.Any course done with DU has much more value than distance learning programmes.

    It hampers preparation for sure.

    But, SBI PO and similar jobs consume much more time than a masters from DU.

    At least you are economically stable and when you clear any exam you get so much of confidence that keeps you motivated.
    Masters studies are not that relevant as per the syllabus of upsc. They would mend you to think like a historian.
    Haan there s no issue of attendance here but assignments and presentations would keep interferring your daily routine in your preparations .

    If one cosiders going in academics as a backup then he/she can take the risk of doing masters with upsc preprations but i wont suggest for others.
    Just a personal opinion

    Yes, masters don't provide any concrete backup as such.
    I am pursuing LLB from DU. Thought I could manage both UPSC and Law. Realised after a sem that I will have to let go off UPSC for three years.

    Btw, you people have an advantage regarding attendance. We even have attendance issue :(

  • i was a BA history hons student at Du for 3 years . I didnt opt MA intentionally although i secured a seat.
    DU SOL is a Big NO for MA, they have very sluggish time table , result delays are sort of norm. it will take you around 3 years to finish a 2year degree, better opt IGNOU .

    it is very hard to prepare for UPSC ,if you are in Campus as chances are very high to get swayed by Campus wave ; fashion , Grand Masti , Ideology etc .
    So unless you are thinking of a alternative career in Academics / LAwyer .....DU is a big "No".
    once a selected Senior advised me , when you are in preparation and see , things are not happening as planned.
    Such thoughts will pop up. But , stay Strong against such winds and focus only on UPSC .
    it helped me a lot.
