What the Toppers say about us

All India Rank - 50, Indian Forest Service Eaxm, 2018

Hello everybody, this is Lakshmi. I have secured 50th rank in the Indian Forest Service Examination 2018. I had started my preparations for the Forest Mains post Civil Service Mains Examination . So I had 2 months to do everything from the scratch. I chose Geology and Forestry as my optional considering the fact that material was easily available and knowledge in Forestry could be of help in the interview too. 

Thankfully I came across a crash course on Geology hosted on the website of Evolution IAS under the guidance of Sir Prabhakar Priyadarshi (AIR 31,2017) . Joining this course made my work simpler because Sir had already provided his compiled notes, useful insights from external sources and explained the complex geological processes in a simpler manner. Certain topics like Minerology , Igneous and Metamorphic Petrology, Paleontology which are generally scoring but ignored by candidates due to lack of conceptual clarity were made easy. Further I cannot thank him enough for telling us the importance of using coloured pencils in diagrams, trust me it did wonders. Also he was always available through email or phone despite undergoing training, this helped me clarify my doubts easily. I am glad to have made the right choice and grateful for his immense help to crack the examination successfully.
