Is it advisable to go with Public Ad?

Given, most of the people who were excellent with public ad are out in race again. Also there are very few who have cleared with public ad and Rank 1 too said how despite everything publoc ad never clicked for him. In this context is it good to take public ad? Or should I continue with it? I am very scared given this scenario.

  • abhi marks aane do......
  • Brother even one of pub ADM teacher told me don't take pub adm...take anyother.
  • Itna time invest kiya hai..kaise shuru karu naya.
  • Idhar Pub ad butcher ho raha.. mera to start bhi nahi hua...... I might be having same fate of boiler chicken :trollface:

  • Pubadm books and notes contact immediately
  • Even vajiram famous IRS teacher of pub ad is advising people not to take pub ad.
  • I can tell you that if its not been working for you, its a good enough time to let it go. There are so many people who left Pub Ad last attempt after Mains have made it this year.

    I hope it reaches the people I intend it to reach.

  • Wait till marks are out and check ur score if u r in 270 and 280 zone, u can continue, if not one should rethink!!!

    Then I am not able to decide what optional to choose. I am already in job now and preparation with it from scratch will be so difficult. What should I do?

    Go with pol science... It will cover your gs2, essay , g4 and some gs1.
  • In my humble opinion if u r in 2 3 rd attempt u may try some other optional.

  • Personal Analysis today:


    As per Vajiram records.. out of top 500 rank (>300 on their record).. only ~ 15/16 ppl IN with pub adm.. 2 in top 100.. 4 in 100-200.. 3 in 200-300.. 4 in 300-400.. 3 in 400-500.. we can maximum double this.. so total 30 MAXIMUM in top 500.. Not a single one in Top 20.. (those in especially after 300 rank should be based on GS/essay/PT score ..not Pub adm per se)


    Time to leave Pub Adm for me. 80% decided. 20% after seeing final marks.


    AB is se jyada trust nhi ho payega. Pub Adm se IAS nhi bn skoge. :(


    It's painful to skip the attempt and prepare for new one from scratch..but lesser then failing at margins due to a simple mistake.. taking an optional which many others also took ! :|


    "Zindagi Kminiii Haiii..."



    PS- Sorry if I sound like a Cynical Failed Senior..but that's my cry after giving 5 yrs 4 attempts to a NEVER REWARDING OPTIONAL for me :(
    Being IAS... 4 U Onlyyy... :-)

    Great decision.....I m also on the same path and after analysing marks of selected candidates as claimed by lukmaan and pavan Kumar on their websites most of them under 400 selected due to 175+ marks in interview.So basically subject is butchered by upsc again.
