  • u have brilliant tutorials and dias....!
    both are good...but its bettr to prepare it on our own...!!!
    How good is DIAS?
    Have heard the same teacher teaches Physical, organic and Inorganic.
    Approximately how long does it take to complete Chemistry optional?

  • humbug: it will take u 15-16 mnths approx...if u r sincerely preparin...and lookin to get abt 225-240 range..
    minimum i would would say atleast a year...!
    taking tution in chemistry is a complete way of time...u should start lookin at the last 10 years paper...and u ll notice why is that..!!
    since even u r willing to take chemistry..lets share stratergy and work our way through..!!
  • hello has anyone cleared with chemistry as optional?
  • i ll be appearing 1st time in 2016...
    jz in prep mode now...!!

  • Hi pulkit congratulations!!!!! Plz tell abt your correct attempt in paper 1 and paper 2.
  • congrats sir...is dias focus on writing answer practice..i mean that do they help in developing model answer...??!!
  • What abt brilliant tutorials study material?? is it woth or not??
  • if somebdy can share dias material for chemistry
  • if somebdy can share dias material for chemistry
  • be smart and start reading on educationmasters.in/ssc-cgl-pre-exam-general-knowledge-of-science-in-hindi/ ..here so many science gk quesstion in hindi
  • does anybody have pdf of KALSI for spectroscopy...plz share...
  • chemistry people let us share notes if u are making
    Rise, awake and stop not till the goal is achieved!
  • at DIAS it require 4.5 monts to cover syllabus most strongest point is class notes of paper 2 from which direct question asked in both ifs and Cs
  • Ifs chemistry papers are much easier. For cs, I think self study is better, specially for paper 2. Organic chemistry is all about bulging concept and studying different examples of name reactions. If your basics are clear, reading+10 yrs Q's practice will be helpful.
  • Are abhijeet agarwal notes sufficient for ifos especially for paper1
    Mehnat itni khamoshi se karo ki qamyabi shor macha de !!!
  • Just gone through 2015 chemistry optional paper-1. Taugh compared to previous years. It will be difficult to score 150+ in paper-1 in 2015.
  • anybody has Spectroscopy by P.S. Kalsi
    Please share it .
  • I am planning to do MSc chemistry then take CSE with chemistry optional is this a right approach or should I take after BSc ?
    "Every successful person has a painful story, And every painful story has a successful ending."
