Sources for Qn's asked in Prev Pre/Mains

Hi Everyone,

If possible, Please share names of sources from which Previous Q'ns were asked in Pre/Mains of UPSC. Or any new sources from which the question was asked directly.
You can share Names of Books, Test series, Govt website links, News Website links, International website links etc.

As UPSC Qn's are not Completely relying on News and Books, and diversifying their sources, reference to these UNKNOWN/ NEGLECTED sources can help fetch extra marks.

Thanks.

    Thanks

    Last line ... :'(
  • some time i wonder if test series got any relevence or not , practice wractice theek hai .. but who has time when so much is of syllabus in current and static to revise.. beside if UPSC ask a large number of queston from test series the next day there will be big ad in newspaper of 80-90% from our series typo .. so i guess UPSC itself must be avoiding such direct ques atleast

    and what matter will be the coverage and revision at the end of day and that will need time
