  • This was my first attempt and considering the papers of botany this year, I dont think any advantage of taking botany. Still, I can't think of taking any other optional.. Let's have a cryptogamic kill of upsc with little more efforts :)
  • Please suggest sm1. M gonna appear for CSE 2016 and decided to take botany as my optional subject.
    I hvnt strted any preparation for botany. Should i think once more abt tkng it as my optional subject as i found that no1 cleared mains wid botany optional. What should i do. Please guide.

  • @IAS_officer
    you have enough time. Better to go for some other life. Life at botany is a real trouble with a long boring journey.. Last moment mess with syllabus is a normal phenomenon with botany people..
    Have a deep introspection, take breath and take life. Better to change the track at your juncture if botany is not the only source of orgasm for you :) feel the change..
    Good luck
  • Bro pehle geography,political science,pub ad,history,socio,wallop se bhi suggestions le lena.so bhaiya extent of living fossilism is directly proportional to marks in upsc.
    "revision is just like a paan leaves
    if it wudn't be turned continously it wud have rotten

    similarly... if the revision has n't been done repeatedly it wud have forgotten".

  • @ias_officer. If you have confidence of paper 2 of botany and good knowledge, only then go for it otherwise leave it. I messed up with paper 1 this time. But I am sure that I will make it with botany only next time.

    Guys,
    Everything is relative.so is the success of an optional say botany. This year no one seen clearing mains with botany so botany seems to b a futile subject. But if in 2015 any of Vinay Baranwal Shrey Puranik Sudhir Pandey Vinay Tripathi etc lands in top 10, then same botany will be regarded as good optionals.
    There is no denying of fact that botany is a tough optional to take. But probs can be overcome if a proper strategy is followed.
    Main prob with botany is that it has a vast syllabus but at the same time syllabus gives aspirant the greed that 'i alone can master botany syllabus'.
    Mastering botany kills time of GS. Viceversa one cant complete botany syllabus on time.in either case its loose loose situation.
    So master strategy to master botany is to form a serious dedicated study group so that in lesser time botany can be completed in a quality way.
    I am planning to have one such study group in delhi starting from may 2015.me and Vinay Baranwal and few others will b part of this. If anyone else is interested then you can join us in delhi. Otherwise of you are serious with botany form study groups in your respective cities.
    However those who are yet to start with botany i would siggest - look for other optionals as well.
    if you are still waiting for that one person who will change your life..
    then stand infront of mirror !!!
  • I am confident in both paper 1 and 2. But i need to join coaching. I know i will do very good with botany.
    But when i c the result of botany in upsc.. i feel sad. I start doubting, m i going on right rack or should i change it. Thinking of changing track gives me headache as from core of my heart i dnt want to leave botany n others subjects r totally new fr me n i dnt want to study them in so much depth as i knw that ill nt b able to do justice wid other optional subjects. 8-|
