Since I am getting this question from a lot of people , and I may not Be the best person to advise on it, I am plus request IFoS toppers to throw some light on this.
1) What is the most suitable optional for IFoS for candidates who have non forest subjects such as sociology, philosophy etc and no forest optional in graduation background?
2) What are the most suitable optionals for people with Geography optional ?
3) what is the most suitable optional combo for non engineers, humanities graduation background students?
Assuming that the student is primarily preparing for CSE and is not primarily preparing for IFoS.
I spoke to Vaibhava Shrivastava who has secure first rank , and he recommended choosing Forestry ( commonly ) taken and Agriculturally engineering - for those good with tenth level maths .
Others can add some light to it so that people can make an informed choice.@chuck
and others , please guide. Your advice will help a lot of people.
