Old NCERT Vs New NCERT Books for UPSC Exams


Old NCERT Vs New NCERT Books for UPSC IAS Exams


Another question that is often asked is whether to read Old NCERT or New NCERT Books?

This section tries to answer all your queries related to this question

Old and new NCERTs: A Comparison

  1. Edition: Generally the NCERTs published before 2005 are considered to be old and those published after 2005 are called new. However that is not the only difference

  1. Graphics: New NCERT Books are considered to more graphical as they come with more images and colors which makes it an interesting read when compared to the old ones. The image below show the contrast. However graphics are not always bad. For instance, new NCERTs of geography have images that can explain the complex phenomenon in a very simple way

  2. Content: For the civil service exam reading a book with more content is better than those with the colors and images even though they seem to be too dull to be read. Old NCERT Books are rich in content and have been authored prominent writers such as Bipan Chandra. As an example, new NCERTs of history come with lot of pictures but are lagging in facts as well as order while the old ones cover history in a chronological and coherent manner. The question ‘Clarify how mid-eighteenth century India was beset with the spectre of a fragmented polity (2017)’ was picked up directly from the old NCERT by Bipan Chandra. Also, new NCERTs would contain the updated information and thus are relevant for subjects like polity which require a knowledge of the current affairs

  1. Availability: While both soft and hard copies of new NCERTs are easily available in the market, old ncert books are a difficult find. The hard copy can be bought only in Delhi that too not in a very reader friendly format (Mostly Xerox). However you can Download soft copies(PDF) of old ncert books here. You can enquire about the books with your friends and get them printed copied instead of going to Delhi especially to buy them, if you are based out of Delhi.

How to choose NCERT Books?

There is no standard answer to this question. A lot depends on the individual’s aptitude and other factors such as nature of the subject (static/dynamic), availability etc. Those with a pictographic memory will be drawn towards the new NCERTs while people with affinity towards text will prefer the old ones.

However based on the recommendation of selected candidates following the list can be drawn out:

  • History – Old NCERT Books. As the subject is static and requires a coherent and chronological approach for better understanding

  • Economics – New NCERT Books. NCERTs will cover only the basic aspect and therefore the info must be latest and relevant to present times. Most part of the subject however has to be covered from newspaper

  • Geography – New NCERT Books. Requires updated information and diagrams for explanation which are available only in new NCERTs

  • Polity, Science & tech – New NCERT Books

(a) India should be granted complete independence

(b) India should be partitioned into two before granting independence

(c) India should be made a republic with the condition that she will join the Commonwealth

(Article) DECIDING THE OPTIONAL SUBJECT with MYTHS AND FAQs by Divey Sethi (IFS)

DECIDING THE OPTIONAL SUBJECT

It is imminent that UPSC is trying to reduce the weightage of optional subject in CSE. In 2013, two papers of the optional subject were replaced by that of General studies. Before that, the two optional were of such importance that one could get through civil services by scoring 300 plus marks in both the optional paper even if GS scores were below average.

However, it is worth noting that even in the present scenario the optional papers determine selection and influence the rank to a large extent. We must acknowledge the fact that it is difficult to create a significant lead in GS. After a rigorous study of one year the serious competitors have more or less the same quantum of knowledge in GS. Some may have economics as a stronghold, others may fare better in history and geography. Therefore, at the end of the exam we realize that the range of marks of GS out of 1000 is not much. Here, the marks of optional subject become the rank booster. The target score in the optional subject should be 250, that is 50%. Anything above that is your bonus!

With the kind of importance the optional subject carries, it is imperative that one should do a lot of brainstorming before choosing any optional subject. If you revert back on your decision, that is, you change the optional subject at any time, the time of study increases by around 5 to 6 months at least. I have seen people changing their optional paper in the third attempt after two unsuccessful attempts and then managing to get into the list. But why to be baffled and tormented by wrong decision of the optional and waste even a single attempt? It is better to brainstorm for two months to decide which optional will go with the aspirant rather than take a quick decision and waste an attempt or two before reversing the earlier decision. For this, a broad understanding is required of the guidelines to decide the best optional subject. The final decision must rest with the aspirant, but that decision must be an informed one incorporating the following facts and factors;

1. Optional subjects must be looked upon as static or dynamic subjects:

Static subjects are those which have a well-defined syllabus that remains unchanging at the graduate level. For example, history and philosophy in art subjects, physics, chemistry and mathematics in science subjects and all engineering subjects, accountancy for commerce students, zoology and botany for medical students; these all can be categorized as static subjects. The content of these subjects remains same in any year. The variations can be made in the questions and that too in words, figures and inferences. The essence remains the same.

On the other hand, dynamic subjects are evolving subjects in both essence and content, such as, public administration, sociology, management, law. The questions from these subjects will take into account recent developments, trends, phenomenon and case studies. You have to be constantly updating your knowledge regarding these subjects. Then there may be some intermediate subject such as geography and psychology which involves both static as well as dynamic concepts in almost equal proportions.

But the question is which one to go for? Dear aspirant, you must be fully sovereign to decide for yourself. So that you can hold yourself accountable and no one else for the result of your examination. Do not be swayed by your peer circle. It does not mean that you should not hear others’ opinion. You must have a full ear for the experiences of others regarding an optional subject. Talk to those teachers and faculties who deal with general studies and extract their valuable views regarding the optional subjects. Nevertheless, don’t go to subject experts asking for which optional to choose. Why would a physics teacher advice you to go for public administration and vice-versa?

Some may find static subject more favorable as continuous deliberations on the subject is not required – once you do history you only have to revise it and not incorporate new knowledge or inferences with changing times. However, there is another school of thought which finds dynamic subjects interesting and possesses a keen eye to relate with the current issues and unfolding events to their optional subject, such as the one we find in public administration.

Importance of NCERT BOOKS for UPSC Exams (Why, What, How)


Importance of NCERT BOOKS for UPSC Exams (Why, What, How)


This very article may the first one you might be reading for the journey that you have chosen to become a civil servant. NCERT books can be considered as the first step out of many to conquer this challenging examination. These books are so well articulated and unbiased that you may take its information as a complete truth and make factual notes out of it especially for the history and geography. Now you might be asking the same question and facing the same dilemma which every beginner has to tackle which is about why to study NCERTs when there are so many books/coaching note/online materials/topper notes already circulating in the offline and the online world? And why not skip these books for the last and just give a passing reference once you get to the finishing line of the syllabus?

Part 1: Why NCERT books are important?

Explanation: Being the most basic books and written in very simple language, lucid and neutral perspective makes NCERTs as the base for the entire preparation. One will get most of their basic covered for the geography and history from these books. Secondly, mains answer writing language should be similar to the writing style of these books which make them as the fundamental element while preparing for the Mains examination.

Now let us analyse from Prelims and Mains perspective:

  • Every year at least 35-40 prelims questions are directly asked from the NCERTs.
  • If you read one book for the prelims it also comes handy in the mains. For Example, Geography NCERTs of class 11 and 12 and History NCERT of class 10 and 11 are the most comprehensive books which must be read by every aspirant.

  • It helps in planned study otherwise, you may be lost in the vast ocean of data and coaching materials.
  • If you are planning to choose humanities optional and you are from the non-humanities background, then study of these books will help in choosing the right optional and further, it may help in your optional paper too.

What are the important topics to read from a newspaper in two hours?


As we have already discussed the importance of reading the newspapers for the preparation of UPSC. Importance of newspapers is also increasing now a days as most of the paper is made out of correct news. In this article we would discuss how to finish in newspaper in less time and get the best out of it for the purpose of UPSC. While discussing how to finish the newspaper in short time preferably it should finish in 2 hours including the notes, first thing to decide is which newspaper to follow. The Hindu has been the lifeline of UPSC aspirants for a long time. It still is the most used and probably most relevant newspaper for the UPSC preparation. However Indian express is also a very good newspaper especially if your optional is Public administration and it is also very useful for the polity section for mains.

As we have been saying religiously in all our articles to please go through the syllabus. We begin the strategy to finish the newspaper in short time with same thing. Lot many things can be striked immediately which are not important for UPSC only by knowing the syllabus. Similarly especial attention will be given to things which are mentioned in the syllabus.

Mainly five pages in the newspaper should be focused by any candidate preparing for UPSC. These are:

  • Front page
  • National News page
  • Economy news page
  • International news page and
  • The Editorials
