There is no specific syllabus for the examination.This
examination was very easy till 2001.But in 2007 ,it was
made as a tough examination.Moreover,there is no surity
that only a fixed number of questions will be asked from a
particular subject.In 1998 ,around 30 questions were from
economics.But after that only 10-15 questions were asked in
that subject.So,you can't predict the way the question
paper is set.All you need is thorough knowledge in all the
examinations and confidence to crack the exam.It will be
better if you join in any coaching class
