History: Important Dates (NOTES)

The following PDF contains a list of important dates in Indian History and World History. Please go through them. I cannotย ensure that dates other than the ones mentioned in the list will not be asked. However, the list contains those dates which are most likely to be asked in the exam.

The highlighted dates are probably not in syllabus. However, I was not so sure hence, I have included them as well.


Hereโ€™s a link to the PDF file for the aforementioned notes:

UPDATE (as on 10.01.17):ย 

As rightly pointed out by a reader, NK, there is a discrepancy in the above notes. Instead of

1883 โ€“ Indian National Congress was founded,”

it should read

1883– Indian National Conference was held.”

Please take note of the same. Thank you.


Do check out the notes! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Dear Admin,
    In the quite likely situation that a question demands the candidate to “enumerate”, “state” or “list” the causes/factors/reasons for any event, is the candidate required to explain the same? Supposing the question is a three-marker, does the candidate need to list and explain three points, or merely list them? Your advice and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

      Hi Subham,

      It depends on the question. However, do not focus on the length of your answer. Instead, try to analyze whether you are answering what has been asked. If you can answer what has been asked in less sentences, then that is absolutely ok. However, if you wish, you may add one introductory line to begin your answer. We would suggest that you consult you History teacher regarding what kind of questions require an introductory line. However, quantity should not precede quality.

      Hope this helps! If you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to ask. Thanks for stopping by, and do keep visiting! ๐Ÿ™‚

    thank you so much for the help!

    also,i think there is a little error in the “history important dates notes” it says:

    1883- Indian national congress formed
    1885- Indian national congress formed

    if I’m not wrong, 1883 saw the birth of the Indian National CONFERENCE ๐Ÿ™‚

    anyway, thank you a lot
