I believe that there are some criteria for notes making for any exam.
- The form in which these notes will be desirable when you revise them during exam times.
- The form which will be best for igniting interest.
According to these criteria, I propose the following method:
Since for UPSC CSE, questions are asked, it is important that you prepare your notes in form of questions and answers. This will help you in knowing the following things:
- What you have covered for a topic.
- What is left in a topic.
e.g. If you are talking about India and China, then preparing questions on the issues affecting their relations will encourage you to think about various aspects of these issues. When you do it in Q-A form, you will know what you have covered and what not.
Further, such a step will help you in asking more questions related to the topic. In this way you will be absolutely clear about it. It will also keep you interested in the topic, unlike the usual notes making procedure in which you may even 'sleep' while revising (due to disinterest) .
