As per a study, the human mind is more inclined to retain information and data presented in graphical or visual form compared to plain text format. Put simply, it means that the as an IAS aspirant, you are more likely to remember a diagram explaining the working of an internal combustion engine rather than a paragraph. Similarly, watching a documentary on Mughal Era rule in India would be far more beneficial compared to reading a book of 500 pages. Therefore, in order to cover the extensive subjective and general syllabus for IAS exam, candidates must depend more upon graphs, charts and audio-visual content compared to plain text notes.
