  • Try to start preparation as soon as upsc preliminary examination are over instead of choosing it late and feeling sorry. Better start your preparation as soon as possible.
  • Try attempting physical anthropology based and theory based questions as much as possible as socio based questions fetch lesser marks comparatively.
  • When you come across a case study, note it down as use it at appropriate topics where you are expected to explain the concept
  • Practice diagrams for physical part, diagrams will ultimately fetch you marks
  • Do not ignore theories part ,selective study is always dangerous
  • Try to make good notes for theories and misc part as good material is not available in market.
  • Keep updating the latest trends and developments in anthropology from newspaper/magazines and internet

Importance of Diagrams in Anthropology Answer Writing

It’s more catchy and provides more information,saves examiner’s time also- if he finds your diagram to be very good, he will be more inclined to like your description too.. So as far as physical anthropology is concerned, neat diagrams will definitely give us an edge over others..

So practice diagrams

  • By diagrams I meant anatomical -skull, vertebra, bones, teeth diagrams when you are asked to write about prehistoric man, also a good comparative diagram with modern man also can be given(depending on question). For questions on prehistoric stages you can give good diagrams of the tools used then, a rough picture of the habitat, some pictures of artefacts found etc.. Its easier to draw diagrams and then explain.
  • Just read the theory part then spend 5 mins for looking at the diagram, then try and do a rough sketch.. 15 mins /day for the diagrams should be more than enough.. That too its only when you read the physical part..
  • Diagrams are important ( for physical anthropology part only) because you can draw a picture and explain things easily than writing paragraphs ( saves time too). It also shows that you know the concept better. Nobody will reduce your marks for not drawing, but you are bound to get more if you give neat sketches. So if you want really high scores then you have to pay attention to it.
  • For non physical anthropology part – give some pictorial additions – like a cycle(eg. Bonded labour question in 2010)/ flow chart- that way we have an edge over others.
  • Focussed preparation with good strategy and guidance will definitely succeed.
