    Respected sir,
    I’am a IInd Year BA LLB student and willing to join the civil services since i want to serve. So sir my questions are-

    1- Do you think Engineering optional subjects are bad scaling and we should pick humanities subjects?
    2- What are your tips on selection of optional subject?
    3- If you’re a working professional, share some tips on how to manage studies with job .

    Thank you

      Hi Digvijay,

      Here are the answers by Arvind (sent over email a long ago. Sorry for the delay).

      1) Selection of Optional Subjects has to do more with the candidates comfort in comprehending and
      understanding the subject. I would call it a myth that UPSC scores for Humanities are higher than Engg/ Medicine/Law etc.

      2) The more comfortable you are in handling the subject, the deeper you are able to comprehend the subject, the better.

      The optional paper 1 will be more conceptual in most subjects, hence its better to choose a subject which the candidate can understand.

      3) Yes I am working but not as a professional but as an administrator.

      UPSC deserves full time attention to preparation, mainly due the vastness of the syllabus and time to focus on demands of the exam.

      This makes it tough to manage work and study together.

  2. Respected Sir

Apart from being an IFS officer, there are various other job opportunities or posts in an embassy. How can i get into one is my query. If yes, then where should I start and should I specialise in some specific field ?? Looking forward to your valuable suggestion.
    Thank you

    Respected Sir,
    I’m a third year BBA LLB student and willing to join the civil services or the judicial services since I want to serve. I’m confused as to which among the two should be given preference in order to enable more contribution towards the nation. Also, whether coaching is necessarily required for both ? If yes, then when should I start taking it ?
    Thank you,
    Sanchi Chhabra.
