Sir, I want your 5minutes of time and ur advice I'm in 2nd year B.A and preparing for UPSC. After searching, exploring, consulting I have finally selected GEOGRAPHY as optional. I have done all the test on myself that I really want this subject, i.e. going through all the basic books of 3 shortlisted subjects and found this one most interesting and effective. I will give my first attempt in 2016. So, I wanted to ask that shall I join coaching this year (batches are starting from Nov-Dec) so that I would have sufficient time to revise and test OR in 2015 i.e. 7-8 months before the Prelims in which I am going to appear? Because, I think there might be possibility of removal of optional.

As of now, there is no sign of removal of optional subject from Main Examination. Don’t think too much about the possibilities of frequent changes as such apprehensions would hamper your preparation-plans.

So, preparing optional subject now or later is completely your own choice and it should be a well-thought of decision.

Geography is a very good optional subject and has been among top performing optional subjects. We suggest that you should commence preparation right now with self-help and if, feel you need guidance; you can join coaching for Geography sometime in April/May 2015.

With some prior knowledge, you will be able to understand better and take better advantage of coaching. At the same time you will have enough time to revise and evaluate your preparedness.
