Thx u so much mem aap or computer ke lecture banao
okay👍 😊
Please reply because I spend 2-3 hrs daily and still my score is very disappointing guide me how can I score good because it is a very important section to get through .So, Please reply Deepanshu sir. Thankyou
Read Pib daily, PRS, and when you are reading news paper that time if any term for example today there was news regarding dead sea and news was about swimming ... After reading this news you should not stop yourself here search on Google where is dead sea what are the countries nearby. I think this will help in score improvement. Although I am new... I don't know, I am also preparing like you much as my score never crossed 9, this was my personal practice which I follow may be it help you.
Thankyou.But reading pib, prs daily and the hindu newspaper especially the editorial don't u think it will take more than the required hrs for current affairs . Can't we rely on one thing like video presented by Deepanshu of daily current affairs.Because there are other subjects too.
no it will not take try to finish hindu in 90 minutes read only for upsc watch Roman sir video how to read hindu it will help you . PIB you can finish in 30 minutes And PRS , MPR follow monthly , MPR can be finish in 3 hours which will cover all updates for whole month. So in short you have to give daily 120-140 minutes.
What is MPR here. Monthly pratiyogita or what? Right now I am following monthly chronicle only.

you can not download these videos.. just watch strategy told Roman sir ... read all the books which he mentioned in the videos and read all NCERT , if you feel that you need coaching then join it, i think VISION IAS is good i dont have any experience so i am not in better position to tell about coachings.
