Important : For IFoS Aspirants : Preparation by IFS Topper Rank 2 - 11AM on 16th Nov Register here

edited November 2017 in Official Exam Process
Dear Friends,

In the Final List of Indian Forest Service 2017, we had two of our offline students in the Top 5 - Abhishek Surana ( IFS Rank 2 / IAS Rank 250 ) and Abhishek Chaurasiya ( IFS Rank 5 / IAS Rank 77 ). More than 30+ known candidates who made it to the final list in IFS 2016 were our Prelims Test Series Students.

We are inviting you for a talk with Abhishek Surana ( Rank 2, IAS and Rank 250 - IPS ) at the below venue :smile:

Venue:
ForumIAS Offline,
3rd Floor, Shop No. 6,
Above NEXT IAS,
Near Syndicate Bank,
Old Rajinder Nagar,
New Delhi 110060

Date & Time : 16th Nov at 11AM.

Registration Link : https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScdA5YxO3sEejdZwOicBSQL6_dRZ_-VeOwfrkFHQRhnEdoKPg/viewform

If you are preparing for IFS Mains 2017 or for IFS in the future 2018, you can join us at by registering below. Note that since most candidates prepare for IFS & IAS together, candidates usually do not put in dedicated preparation for IFS. ( Except this year when you have time ).

This makes it all the more important to know how to prepare for IFS in a time effective manner.

We are arranging this meet up so that those of you appearing later this month can benefit from the preparation guidelines. Come prepared with your queries.

  • Sir any special inputs regarding English&Forestry?

    So you chose IFoS above IRS [I.T] ?

    English - Do as much practice as possible. Focus on grammar.

    Forestry - Limit your sources and focus on presentation.

  • @kabira Not an IFoS query. But could you suggest what would be the right time to join mains test series?
    What would be a good way to go about answer writing practice?

    Thanks
    At the end of the road, let there be no excuses, no explanations, no regrets

    Thanks

    I think right time is either now - you have 2.5 months till February to devote full time to test series for mains. Or after prelims next year.

    Answer writing - if you have some idea about how to structure then, then give full length mock in 3 hours. That's the best way I believe.

  • Can someone pls help- fire tender means sensitive/susceptible to fire [or] resistant&can withstand fire? Pls comment if someone is sure about this!

    I guess Tender means sensitive ,but google is showing fire tender as vehicles which puts the fire off.

    Confused :(
