[Strategy] Most important topic areas for UPSC prelims 2021 (with mindmap notes!)

Reading time: 3 minutes

In order to clear UPSC prelims, you need to first focus on the most probable topics in each subject and cover them comprehensively. But there is a problem of scattered resources and lack of time to make notes and organize everything yourself. So we have listed links to our notes on the most probable topics. As these notes are in mindmap format, you can read/revise them very quickly.

If you have already completed the syllabus, you can also read these notes for the eleventh-hour revision. Some of these notes cannot easily be found across the internet or in one place.

It is not those who read everything become toppers, it is those who know what to read become toppers.
