Any line can become a question in Public Administration books said Abhilash Mishra, AIR 5 who scored a total of 334 marks in Public Administration in 2016. Public Administration was his optional subject throughout his four attempts.
In the toppers seminar on Public Administration, Abhilash talks in detail about how he was not not clear about Pub Ad. concepts until he joined the test series and participated actively in the discussions.
Though the questions seemed complex, they were application based and these applications can be applied if the concepts are clear. Interlinking content with contemporary happenings was the key he says.
Listen to Abhilash talk how to do justice to all the questions asked from the syllabus rather than worry about the out-of-syllabus questions.
Interlinking of thinkers and concepts should happen at the preparation stage itself. This way you can answer all questions holistically and add current based material to your answers as well he said.
Abhilash referred to all books of Mohit Bhattacharya & Prasad and Prasad. The literature in these books have been used in the questions and the same verbatim has been quoted from these books! he told the students during the seminar.
