DEBUNKING THE MYTHS
Myth: best optional is the one which is most trending/ popular/ highest success percentage…
Reality: UPSC never favors one optional over the other. Moreover the trend changes every year. At the end it all boils down to one’s hard work.
Myth: best optional is the one which is chosen by very few people…
Reality: it is incorrect to believe that if an optional has 500 students then it is difficult to score marks, and it is easy to score if it has only 10 odd students. Often, it is seen that out of those 500, 50 may be selected and none out of the 10. It ultimately depends on your performance. BUT ONE HAS TO KEEP IN MIND THAT IF THERE ARE MORE STUDENTS CLEARLY, YOU HAVE TO OUTCLASS ALL OF THEM TO PERFORM BETTER!!!
Myth: Going with the flow-my friend has chosen, rank 1 has chosen, my coaching institute has asked…
Reality: Remember optional subject is like love marriage. You have to love it. Arranged marriage doesn’t work here!!!
Myth: choosing the optional which is the most scoring…
Reality: usually the technical subjects are most scoring. BUT should an aspirant of commerce background take an optional of physics or math?? Moreover, some of these optional require a dedicated time frame of more than 1 year!!! Also, there is no standard that every year that optional subject will be high scoring.
Myth: choosing the optional which is your graduation subject…
Reality:Just because one is graduate in civil engineering doesn’t mean he/she has interest in that subject or has attained perfection. The syllabus of UPSC and the syllabus of graduation may match 60 to 70%. If one is interested in that subject and comfortable with UPSC syllabus then they should definitely choose that optional. But never choose the optional subject ONLY because you did it in graduation.
