Respected Sir, A Very Warm Greeting from my side. I am pursuing MBA from IIT Roorkee, which is on the verge of completion and I am planning to prepare full-fledged for CSE from May onwards. Earlier, I had thought of taking Geography as Optional and even I studied it also in SAMKALP. But anyhow I think I am not much comfortable in it. As I am about to finish my MBA, I am contemplating on MANAGEMENT as optional subject. So, I require your guidance on MANAGEMENT as subject. i.e. 1) How Management has been doing as subject in past few year. 2) Recently, the way of asking question has changed drastically, so keeping this in view, will management be good compared to geography? 3) The problem with Management is no guidance is available but in geography very effective guidance is available (coaching) 4) With management even I think I will be able to do justice in Interview i.e. I can say I have taken subject which I have studied. 5) Can you tell me how been marking in Geography and Management in recent year so that I can compare. 6) In all popular option paper two has been coming completely differently so I am thinking why not put that effort in Management 7) How has been success ratio in Geography and Management? 8) If I talk of myself I am equally comfortable or uncomfortable in both subjects (Though pros and cons are there) Last but not least, it would be very kind of you if you can connect me to someone who has joined services with Management as optional. Any Suggestion from your side is most welcome. Thanking in anticipation and waiting for reply... Note: Management and geography I have cursorily studied. ( Even a bit of Public administration I have studied.)

A typical youngster chasing the Civil service dream, muddled up with optional subject selection dilemma – to go with own subject or to pick one of the most popular optional subject.

By reading your mind with so many queries, we think that you are more or less convinced with Management as optional subject and are looking for someone to back-up your choice.

With new format for Main Examination, picking optional subject from your educational background (Management) would definitely would be a better idea. You are in touch with the subject and you will be able to manoeuvre it easily as per UPSC requirements.

After recent changes introduced in Preliminary Examination in 2011 with entry of talented and professionally qualified candidates eyeing careering Civil Services has transformed the scene intensely. Since then, Management as optional subject has been gaining popularity and a lot of candidates have made it to civil Services with top ranks.

The number of candidates appearing with Management and even, number of successful candidates with Management as one of the optional subject has grown in last two years.

In latest result, Mayur Dixit (AIR 12, CSE 2012) and even, Neha Prakash (AIR 22, CSE 2011) also have achieved top ranks with Management as one of the optional subject.
