    Popularity of Mathematics as an optional subject

    The following are the suggested books / references that the students can consult while preparing for Mathematics - Main Examination - Paper I and Paper II.

    • Mathematics is best fit as an optional for students who are passionate about the subject.
    • Since this is logical subject, scoring is quite straightforward and rote-learning is not required.
    • Engineering Mathematics Students can score very well in this subject as only standard models of sums are asked in the question papers.

    Suggestions for Preparation of Mathematics Optional Subject

    The following are simple preparation tips to score well in the Mathematics - Main Examination - Paper I and Paper II .

    • Prepare selective topics and be thorough in these problems.
    • Linear Algebra, Linear Programming, Vector Calculus, Numerical Methods, Real and Complex Analysis, Ordinary Differential Equations and Partial Differential Equations are some examples of topics thay are relatively easy for most people.
    • Solve problems from previous years questions papers as the same models of the sums normally repeat every year.
    • Solve each problem highlighting each step while arriving at the solution. Do not skip any step thinking it is trivial.
    • Concentrated on the solved examples from B S Grewal Reference book suggested for the UPSC exam.
    • Monitor your speed during practice and try to improve it. Lack of time is the main challenge in this paper.
