It is said that General Studies is a vast area and syllabus is vaguely defined. It is true to some extent; but, broader classification and careful preparation for different constituents can make thing manageable.
It is difficult to assign weightage or importance to one or other constituent as nothing is defines as such and a glance in past few year’s papers clearly indicate that no such conclusion can be drawn.
Some say UPSC is pro-Economy; others say talk of Geography dominance. Polity is at all times existing - be it traditional or current developments, one can not ignore this constituent.
Broadly speaking, you can give more emphasis on constituents like Indian Economy, Polity, Geography and current affairs. From History, national freedom movement and modern history are more in focus as most of the questions asked from this constituent in past few years relate to these areas only.
These constituents (leaving aside History) gain more significance as these all are dynamic in nature. The contemporary issues and latest developments provide value-addition to your preparation.
We are facing some conceptual, analytical and application based questions in recent times which require comprehensive coverage taking into consideration all aspects of syllabus while preparing for General Studies.
