What the toppers say about us
All India Rank - 2, Indian Forest Service Eaxm, 2017
I came in contact with Evolution in Feb 2017 for IFoS 2016 Interview Guidance Programme. Though I could not clear the final cutoff, but I got 222/300 in the Interview.
Later, for IFoS 2017, I enrolled in weekend Agriculture classes. I got AIR 2.
These small bits of information themselves can reveal the contribution of Evolution in my success.
Every member of the Evolution team (Abhishek sir, Suman ma’am, Chiranth sir, Sanjay sir and others) has been a source of immense help, support, guidance and motivation for me. In fact now I identify myself also as a part of it. While many persons & institutions helped me in achieving my & my family’s dream, Evolution’s was the most dominant force …the Optimus Prime. I shall always remain indebted to Evolution. Thanks a lot:)
A short introduction
Every year many candidates make it to final list with Agriculture as optional subjects in Civil Services Examination. The number is much higher in the IFoS Examination.
The subject has gained popularity due to many factors.
- The syllabus is short and easily manageable
- Much of the subject is of such nature that it can be well understood by student of any background
- Its Paper II is very similar to Botany Paper II. Thus, there is an obvious advantage of overlap if a candidate is also opting for Botany optional.
- The subject has been well scoring with a remarkable consistency.
- Many areas of the syllabus directly help in General Studies, especially in Geography and Economy parts.
- With help of some recent information culled from newspapers and magazines, it is possible to raise the score level considerably.
The Agriculture Course offered by Evolution has been capitalising upon the strengths of this optional and making it all the more an attractive proposition.
We have achieved so by having:
- Our faculty drawn from IARI and other premier Institutions
- Well organised notes
- A course design meeting the demands of the examinations.
- Regular tests to further boost your confidence
