    As long as you are comfortable with the Optional its fine , and You must take up History , Geography of VIII and IXth NCERT also . If you are not reading NEWS paper then you should start . Hindu and Chronicle are most advisable for UPSC preparation

    HI Sachhya,
    As correctly mentioned by Rex_B, you need to see your comfort with the subject and based on which you may take up your subjects. If you are fine with this combination, then you may definitely carry on with the same.
    All the Best!
