In section 1.2 relationship with life science, medical science, earth science, behavioral science is missing. Is it not relevant for the exam?

hi there. it was a conscious decision to skip those topics, so that we could finish other topics, as the above-said topics are not very important from exam perspective. you could see the previous years’ question papers and can realize this fact. the social sciences part is important and we covered it extensively. But we’ll cover those left-over topics after everything is over. rest assured. thank you. good luck.
