First time 1857 revolt asked, since syllabus change. Thankfully nothing from medieval India, unlike 2014’s Panipat. 2013: women in freedom struggle
2016: women during Gandhian era of freedom struggle.
Ideals of Gandhi vs (in social science) Gandhi vs Subash (in Freedom Struggle) Post Independent India- nothing asked after 2013. Drought continues. (as such linguistic state question is part of Post-Independent history but the wording is such that I put it under Regionalism topic). World History: easy questions on industrial revolution and role of Germany in WW.
Tough question on “WEST” Africans’ role in anti-colonial struggle.
Each year they’re asking one question less than previous year. So 2017- they ought to be zero question from world history!
2015: 25 marks questions on “women issues” under Social science.
But then again- asked about women empowerment in full length essay, as well as their role in freedom struggle
2015: Dalit empowerment asked
Tribal empowerment asked. But bit factual question since you’ve to enumerate the Constitutional provisions.
Last year – how/why tribal sex ratio better than others?
2013: regionalism to separate state demand asked
How linguistic states strengthen Indian unity?
How development disparity leads to regionalism?
2015: link between cultural diversity vs. national identity asked
Link between Globalization vs. cultural diversity asked!? Seems as if they’re rolling dice to set question paper!
2015: Two questions from poverty, population, globalization
“Remove poverty by removing deprivation”- bit GS2 like question asked. But relatively easier than narrating labour migration trend of 4 decades last year!
Impact of Globalization- asked in 2013, 2014 and now in 2016.
Nothing in physical geography- in 2015 Finally asked – 2 things related to physical geo’s subtopic “disaster”
