    dear friend,

    you can take another optional subject from Indian History and Geography.

    but problem is that these subjects are related to ARTS .

    i suggest these subjects just because of these are easy to understand and easy to crack.


    Good Luck.........

    psychology will be a better option for you as you are pursuing bachelors in it.

    the second optional subject can one of the scoring subject out of the subjects allowed by upsc like
    geography,
    history,
    Public Administration,
    Sociology,
    Political Science and International Relations.
    but your selection must be such that it do not affect your home subject that is psychology.

    Dear friend,

    there is no such optional which is scoring and safe.

    Upsc strikes perfect balance between the various optionals by various ways.

    an optional becomes marks fetching through your hard work.

    an optional has to be selected based upon your interest,availability of study material,proper guidance,syllabus etc..

    first go through the syllabus and then decide the one which will suit you the best.

    the following are the famous optionals among the aspirant:
    History,geography,political science,public administration,psychology,sociology,philosophy,lit eratures,etc..

    you have to make the choice

    all the best
