PSIR Strategy by UPSC Topper Utkarsh Dwivedi

UPSC Topper Utkarsh Dwivedi, first of all, kept his study materials limited, so that he can revise again and again, and don’t waste his time looking at different sources and books. He only referred to Shubhra Ranjan’s notes for Political Science and International Relations (PSIR) because it’s more than enough to form the core aspect of PSIR optional preparation.

In addition to Shubhra Ranjan Notes, Utkarsh also referred to the copies of toppers of the respective tests that he attempted during his Civil Services (Main) Exam preparation. It helped him understand why people are getting the marks they are getting, and how he can improve his answer writing skills for better scores.

Utkarsh Dwivedi had also joined multiple test series even though he couldn’t solve them in the initial days but it widened his realm of understanding. He also made a list of books and authors, particularly for the International Relations paper and has used them extensively in his answers.

Apart from these, he also made his own notes and revised them multiple times which helped him write his answers effectively and score All India Rank 5 in the UPSC Civil Services Examination.
