UPSC Mains Public Administration Paper 1 and Paper 2 Solved Papers 2013 - 2019 (English)(2898)
About the Book:
There is a major secret to success not known to many candidates. The secret is the preparation strategy focused on the understanding of the questions. The first stage of the preparation for any exams begins with the analysis of previous years’ question papers. A foolproof strategy must include it, as far as I can relate it with my experience. The purpose of my writing this book is to support and aid the potential bureaucrats in planning and developing a successful strategy based on previous years’ question papers.
This is especially important because the Public Administration is both one of the most sought after and also feared optional for aspirants. Moreover, the level of difficulty is seen to be increasing each year. Hence, it is crucial for the candidates to understand well the demand of the questions and approach them accordingly.
It may then be noticed that any approach truly is driven for success must take into account two aspects: (i) Analysis of the previous questions, and (ii) Right and well-developed approach to address the questions. Thus, this book makes an attempt to deliver on both these aspects.
In the paper of Public Administration, as in fact in all the papers of the subjective nature, it should be reckoned that, in addition to the structure and articulation of answer, the interlinking of thinkers and theories section to the content is equally important.
You may have heard, and rightly that in Public Administration there is no right or wrong answer, rather there can be multiple approaches to answer a specific question. That is undoubtedly true, but the more relevant truth a serious aspirant cannot afford to miss is that the key to the scoring an answer lies in the relevance of one’s answer to the demand of the questions. That is, how close you are to the theme asked or how close you are to the theme that the question setter has in mind while framing the question.
In this book, my attempt has been to interlink the thinkers and the theory part to the static part. I have also provided relevant examples wherever possible. This point needs to highlight and reiterated because this is what actually differentiates the best answers from the average answers.
In addition to whatever I have stated above, I want to offer very important advice that must be taken into account, if you want to get the best possible score in this paper. You must go through and thoroughly familiarize yourself with the 2nd ARC, Niti Ayog reports concerned with discipline. It will not only give you the much-needed insight but will also equip you with strong arsenals to support your answers so that the examiners are compelled to give you more score than average answers.
According to Mohit Batacharya, the cul-de-sac of the discipline has not been addressed yet. Hence it is advised to the readers that they should keep an eye on latest developments in the discipline. As the analysis of question papers would tell you that questions are largely connected to current affairs developments.
