The biographies of Nehru, Ghandhi, Lincon, Napolean and Hitler are not merely amusements today but they definitely make one aware of certain actions and their consequences which are relevant even today. To cite an example, the use of atom bombs in Japan and its aftermaths curtailed different countries from using the nuclear weapons till date. The horrors of the world wars reflected in history warn nations against another such grave mistake.

As you can’t get a partial credit in IR and each question has multiple parts, it is best to focus on getting answers right than getting to all of them. Prioritize quality over quantity. For instance, say an IR question has three statements and you need to pick the right choice for each. That means, to get any credit, you’ll have to choose the correct option for all three statements. In a situation where you have figured out the first two questions, it makes sense to attempt the third question. On the other hand, if you’re thrown off by the first two questions, it’s not worth wasting your energy on the third one. It’s better to cut your losses, skip the question, and move on to the next.
