Combined Defence Services (CDS), organised by Union Public Service Commission is one of the most prominent ways of entering the Indian Defence Forces as officers.
Every serious candidate needs to understand that there is no way around the 'General Knowledge' paper in CDS, regardless of the institute preference. There are several segments in the GK paper, of which 'History' comes out as one of the biggest pain points for the candidates. The issue with it is that there are a lot of names, facts, and figures that need to be remembered which becomes a tough ask for most of the candidates.
To help students prepare this section better, here are important notes on "Timeline of Indian History". Students can download the free PDF of GK notes of CDS from the link below to gradeup their exam preparation!
The best way to go about and learn history is by making sure that the timelines of the series of events are clear. This would always reduce the lead time while recalling any specific events as the timelines would help in easier visualisation of the events.
Keep revising this PDF to score better in history portion of the General Knowledge paper. You can also check your preparation level by attempting the previous year papers of CDS exam.
