  • bhai strategy nahi notes chahiye.. specially on western contemporary.. most of us make notes.. and so do toppers.. we need to reach out to them to share their notes for people like us
  • Philosophy ke lie revise paper 1 atleast 20 times....yes it's 20 times if u want the flow in the exam hall....for paper 2 focus more on including contemporary examples in socio political.... Religion ke lie do any notes quite well.....be it Patanjali or Mitras but focus on one nd revise it a lot of times....Cheers!!!
  • @Gautam Mohakul for paper 1 patanjali booklet is sufficient??

    I don't have much idea about Patanjali notes as I studied wholly from Mitras booklets + notes!

    Yea you are partially right we do need good nites for the said topic alon with its understanding. Par yaar strategy bhi jaroori hai otherwise you won' know how to write despite being knowing what to write.

    Hmm sahi hai. Ye to tyaari wali baat hogai. But how to write answers? Can some selected candidates please share their answers qith us, will be useful.

    Also how to prepare contemporary western philosophy as their are no good books and notes available in english medium?

    Thanks a lot!!! I got 222( 129+93 ).... Expected more in paper 2 though.....For answer writing I did test series but important thing is to understand how to get the format of the answer right in Paper 1....Hit the right point in the question ....For example, if asked about Panchvidbheda don't start writing wholly about Madhava' s focus on difference but just mention it briefly nd rather write the five differences....Hope u get the point!!! ATB!!
  • Contemporary is the easiest part in western philosophy, just focus on notes and understand in easy terms rather than getting it as something complex....!!
