I am thinking of taking EE as an optional for 2014 IAS. My reasons are -
1. I did my graduation in it. (ECE, B. Tech.)
2. The option for IES also opened. If I could not make it to the civil services, I would prefer a technical job. IES will be my back up plan.
3. (I think) it can be pretty scoring if you have strong command over it. Prince Dhawan (AIR-3) had it last year.
4. You don't have to write too much in it.
5. I kind of like it.
What are your thoughts?
If someone else is also thinking on the same lines, we can make a study group. Not much help is available in the market, so study group will be helpful.
