    One of the greatest mistakes is to judge policies and programs by their intentions rather than their results

    its probably in english but defence material in english not much relevant to actual course content.... with CSAT gone probability lot less for publishing in english

    no not in english. with surge in this subject in csat era i thought some material would be released n English but that has vanished after removal of csat and re-entry of hindi medium veteran brigade... Scaling is ok for all optionals and no major problem with it unless the commission adopts unfair and corrupt means(which it does regularly). Otherwise, do not bother about scaling. it wont affect much. only thing that bothers us in preference to hindi medium and corrupt means by the commission
  • Defence syllabus looks vast.

    some part overlaps with IR and other subjects

    @osho_baba second paper to ho jata hai IR and IDSA site se thoda bahut...main problem is paper-1 I have only Shekhar Adhikari ...it's little bit confusing and no one here in Delhi to help us...
  • In 2015 I got 127 in paper-2 but performed badly in paper-1 by securing only 83 marks. .
  • Sir protected file hai .... plz password batayein
  • well i have often reiterated the fact that defense is not conducive for eng medium students.. its not .... target is not to get avg marks but good marks to cover up for hindi paper and fair and just interviews.. not only selection + good rank.. + in last few years it was downscaled as well. nowhere you gonna get syllabus wise topic wise material in english...get that thing very clear
  • In 2015 I got 127 in paper-2 but performed badly in paper-1 by securing only 83 marks. .

    Strange u got 83. Adhikari is not that OK? Gud marks in paper 2. Hw come?
    @clausewitz I didn't read Adhikari properly bhai.... anyway good or bad it's only choice in paper-1
    In Paper 2 I only followed Chokalingam's IR notes and IDSA...

  • I heard that someone is giving coaching for Defense Studies in English in Mukherjee Nagar...in 21 days for 10k

    Bro go through previous yrs. Pick up adhikari. Barring 1-2 topics everything is there. Moreover question paper pattern has done away with compulsory questions. And one more thing....upscaling hoti h. Target pe marksheet dekhi thi bohot logon ki. Aap check kar lo
    yaar i have already given mains with defense and found its favourable for hindi medium guys only... i dunno which 1-2 qs you are talking about but still 1-2 qs make a lot of difference esp for eng medium students who are already at a disadvantage in hindi compulsory paper.... so i would suggest to go with an optional whose material is available in english otherwise chances of under performing would be there... Dont fall in the trap of coachings who are saying they will make you prepare defense in 21 days... that does not happen... remember you people have to maximize your score in optionals and not just 'Chalta hai' marks... even if you are selected for the post of Naib Tehsildar(its posts are plenty this time swelling overall posts to 630) majority of you would not join it.... if mains happens in august, you can prepare a proper optional in june and go well prepared.. rest is for you people to believe... and yes ... you wont find toppers (except may be 1 or 2) in SDM/DSP with Defense studies and that too with English medium.. views are personal...

    @player10 agree with you sir...but for students like me whose main focus is upsc can't afford two big subjects... nowadays craze of defense studies is declining in uppsc aspirants...this time trying to make own materiasl in English So there is need of guidance of learned people like you... we can collectively make changes...plz keep motivating us... although your views are personal but holds depth
  • my strategy for prepration of defence study
    sudhanshu mishra notes for paper 1 ,chokolingam notes for international relations , national security , insurgency , and important concepts like deterrence , disarmament, arms control ,from sudhanshu sir notes , and for current go for hindu news paper
