IR paper I is the most difficult, IR II paper is moderate. Whereas, Political Science I paper is a bit tough but its paper II seems very easy. But I think both are lying in the same parameter. Plz share mcqs

IR was a paper of professionals. Too qualitative, lot of variables in a statement that too recent most. Political science is letting you build your arguments in above paper. IR was asking for multiple discourse in a single statement; relating events, analysis, recommendations. That made it too lengthy. However, as far as MCQs are concerned we got easy in the Paper 1 and tougher in 2nd.

And that has always been an unfaithful partner. Political Science is a better choice for pleasure reading and understanding of the state's system but not fit to be opted for fetching good marks while you're in a competition. I was M Phil in Political Science (CE 2013) and I could secure only 140, and that's my top score during the span of my career as a candidate for CSS (3 times)+PMS (2 times). IR is a bit simple in comparison to Political Science with somewhat short syllabus making it an agreeable option for candidates. And don't say that crammers are done as they still have an edge-this Reformed CSS Syllabi thing is just a claim! Crammers are gonna ace it again. Wishing you luck!
