BPSC History Optional Question Paper FAQs

  • Sometimes a good optional, such as History, isn't enough to get good grades. Non-technical disciplines, particularly those that overlap with the GS syllabus, offer greater study time and reading material in general, resulting in a higher overall Mains score if studied attentively.

    • Modern History of India and Indian culture.

    • Art and Culture: Indian Art and Culture by Nitin Singhania.
    • Ancient Indian History: India's Ancient Past by RS Sharma (Old NCERT)

  • Most aspirants choose history as an optional subject because it is simple to begin with and is one of the subjects that requires the least amount of coaching. It also has advantages in general studies papers and essays. Approaching history as an elective, on the other hand, necessitates a very technical and objective perspective.
