How To Study Contemporary World Politics?
After careful examination of the syllabus mentioned above, you may now understand which units should be given importance. Firstly, students should understand the concept behind every topic. For example, what could be the major reason for the end of bipolarity. Students should always relate the world politics to an Indian perspective. For instance, India's changing relations with China in the Unit 4 - Alternative Centres for Power. This is the same for the other units such as environment and globalization.
How To Study Politics In India Since Independence?
You may be wondering why theUnit 13 - India's External Relations got meagre marks. This is because of the Part-A where India's perspective was addressed much. Students should focus more on the time-lapse because it will add marks unknowingly while writing the answers. The units such as Challenges To The Congress system and Politics of Planned Development will take you back to the 1970's, hence, students should refer to some other books to make their answers attractive.
How To Score 100 In Political Science?
Students should either support or criticise the event while answering the factual questions. They should master the last unit - Recent Developments In Indian politics, because in some or other way it would turn out to be useful. One can expect long answer questions in globalization.
