How to prepare
These changes are not at all mind boggling. They can be tackled with élan if thoughtful inputs goes into the preparation. And here comes the role of coaching institutes. Quality education to IAS aspirants will be of paramount importance in their preparation. What an individual candidate can accumulate in a year or so, institutes can make the candidate assimilate in a couple of months. Also, to add to our discussion, these changes in the syllabus are also beneficial to the aspirants in some way. Like, as Geography is tending to become multi-disciplinary it would provide more coverage for general studies. Furthermore, the non-serious candidates can be weeded out by this process.
