Description

Topics of Geography and Environment have a lot of convergence. We strongly recommend you buy both the Notes as the topics covered in one notes are not included in the other. As 95% of the users buy both, it is not logical for me to add the same content in both the notes as it would increase the number of pages and the printing cost.

FAQs

  • Yes, absolutely, these notes are useful for UPSC 2021 cycle and beyond.
  • The notes cover both the static part and the dynamic part of the syllabus.
  • The static part is ready and can be downloaded anytime.
  • The dynamic part (current affairs and contemporary issues) are being uploaded on a weekly basis since May 2019. You can download them as and when they are uploaded.
  • There are two aspects to these notes
    1. the static part which doesn’t change much with time, and
    2. the dynamic part (current affairs and contemporary issues) that needs to be constantly updated.
  • The static notes are fully revised and updated in April 2019. Hence, they don’t need to be revised or updated for UPSC 2021 cycle.
  • The dynamic part (current affairs and contemporary issues) is already being covered on a weekly basis. Updation of the dynamic part is a continuous process.

  • The content is the same in 1 Column Text and 2 Column Text.
  • The difference in the number of pages is due to text size and formatting.
  • Yes, these notes cover quite comprehensively both the static as well as the dynamic aspects (contemporary issues and current affairs) of the syllabus that is required for GS.
  • Everything is explained in good detail and you don’t need to go net-digging to clear your doubts.
  • Going for multiple sources will only kill your time and energy (there are many other subjects to be covered, you see! You simply can’t afford to spend months on a single subject unless you want to do a PhD!). Just stick to these notes and do a lot of revision and practise.
  • NCERTs are important for a reason that UPSC lifts some lines (verbatim) as it is from NCERTs while framing prelims and mains questions.
  • NCERTs are already covered in our notes. You need not cover them separately.
  • Instead, you can focus on Our Notes + a Good Test Series (All the test series cover every nook and corner of NCERTs).

Study Guide

  1. Analyse the past 5-6 years’ UPSC CSE Prelims and Mains question papers to understand the pattern and nature of questions asked from Geography.
  2. Skim through our notes to get a broader understanding of the structure of the subject and the contents.
  3. First Reading: Just cover the first few paragraphs (mostly the introduction part) of each topic to get a broader understanding of the scheme of things.
  4. Reanalyse the past 5-6 years’ UPSC CSE Prelims and Mains question papers.
  5. Second Reading: Cover a few more paragraphs of each topic. Don’t cover the topics in depth. The second reading is meant to understand the importance of each topic for the exam.
  6. Reanalyse the past 5-6 years’ UPSC CSE Prelims and Mains question papers. By this time you will have a brief understanding of the focus and non-focus areas.
  7. Third Reading: You will now study the focus areas in-depth and just skim through the surface of the non-focus areas (non-focus areas usually are tough with a lot of jargon).
  8. Take a good test series for both Prelims and Mains to identify your strengths and weakness.
  9. Revise, practise test series and chart your own plan based on your strengths and weaknesses.
  • I have already highlighted important facts, terms and sentences in bolded letters and in blue and red colours in the notes.
  • To identify individual focus areas you need to analyse the past 5-6 years’ UPSC CSE Prelims and Mains question papers.

Geography-Sample

  • Not necessary, in my opinion.
  • Just use the DOC files (MS Word files) to make short notes for quick revision for both Prelims and Mains. This way you can save a lot of time.
  • Yes, they are quite useful for creating a good base for Geography Optional, especially physical geography portion which needs strong basics.
  • Pmfias notes cover up to 30-35% of the Geography Optional Syllabus.
