Important Factors to Bear in Mind When Selecting an Optional Subject

Select a subject that is related to your interests and areas of interest. When you study something you enjoy, learning becomes more fun, and you are more likely to thrive.

Take into account your academic background and subject-matter expertise. You may have an advantage in mastering the subject matter if you have prior knowledge and experience.

Seek out subjects that have a lot of overlap with the General Studies (GS) curriculum. When preparing for both papers, this can help you save time and effort.

Examine the syllabus and coverage of each subject thoroughly. Choose a subject that interests you and has a wide choice of subjects to investigate.

Take into account the amount of time necessary for preparation as well as the availability of resources. Choose a subject that will help you to organise your time effectively.

Determine the subject’s scoring potential based on previous year’s performance. It is crucial to take into account the fact that some subjects have consistently greater success rates. Although this point of consideration must be considered giving it the least importance.
