  • Sir, I have few questions regarding Philosophy.

    1. Most confusing for me is wheter to write the Paper in Points or in Paragraphs. (can you elaborate on this seperately for paper 1 and paer 2)
    2. can you help regarding sources of paper 2 of Philosophy. I mean from where one can prepare Socio-political apart from OP Gauba, institute notes
    3. How much of CAs examples and data and Resports one should include in Socio-political paper.

    It will be a great help if you can elaborate on it,

    Same queries..also elaborate on structure of answers in paper 2 eg starting the answer with view of philosopher on topic and then linked it with current examples..can case studies be included in answers in socio part?
  • I wrote in paragraphs.
    O.P. Gauba is good. Also Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy.
    Current affairs and GS type answers won't work in paper two. This is a subject specific exam and one's answers should reflect that.
    In case there are any other queries, please write to me
