With our guidance, getting 60 percent or more becomes easy in this optional. Our students have achieved that year after year.
This is the kind of score that UPSC Toppers get. You can easily touch that score with Botany.
Every year, nearly 90% of the Botany selections in IAS & IFS are from Evolution. Top Rankers like Vidushi (Rank 1, IFS 2016), Divya Jyoti Parida (Rank 26, IAS 2015), Abhilasha (Rank 2, IFS 2015), Aditya M. (Rank 5, IFS 2015), have all been trained by us for Botany optional.
Botany being a science subject has a straight and clearly laid out syllabus.
With a proper planning provided by us, you can cover the entire syllabus in a reasonable time frame with ample time to spare for General Studies.
After a proper coverage and notes-making, revision is also quick and effective.
Questions in Botany are direct in nature. With basic concept and facts, you can answer most of the questions.
During UPSC evaluation, there is always a great degree of objectivity because of the straight forward nature of questions. With our guidance, you can comfortably write fact-rich, coherent and well-illustrated answers.
There is no unpredictability in the scores. You write well and you score well. No guessing games like may humanity subjects.
You will not be losing any marks on the grounds that your line of arguments / interpretation did not match with that of the examiner. In sciences, there are only facts and concepts, which if correct, are bound to fetch you high marks.
Most of your competitors, who are not getting a good guidance, would rely on common resources and find the subject too big and hard to manage.
We have made Botany preparation simpler for you with streamlined content, updated and enriched material and step-by-step mentoring.
We will also help in organizing the entire course as per the demands of the examination. Thus, you can understand the emphasis areas and focus on them appropriately.

IFS Rank - 5, 2019
I had joined the following courses at Evolution, both in online mode - 1) Interview Preparation Module with 2 in-person mock interview + lectures on Current Affairs and Forestry 2) Prelims modules - Current affairs, Environment and Science-Tech.
Evolution helped me quickly improve my Env preparation from a generalist CSE paper 3 level to the depth required for IFoS. I have seen many of my friends struggle in Env and SciTech due to lack of a good, consolidated source. Evolution's extremely relevant and comprehensive coverage of these topics definitely added value to my preparation.
Abhishek Sir's lectures were rigorous, yet focused and engaging. The narrative format of delivery improved my understanding, as well as retention, reducing the need for revision. His broader guidance on framing of answers (structuring, prioritisation) and IFoS-specific questions was also immensely helpful. Chiranth Sir helped me cover high-scoring areas like Env legislation for Prelims and revising Forestry. I would unhesitatingly recommend these courses to any serious aspirant. I've myself been using them for the coming attempt.
IAS Rank - 45, 2018 | IFS Rank - 50, 2018
I joined a course on Geology at Evolution under the guidance of Sir Prabhakar Priyadarshi (AIR 31, IFS 2017) .
Joining this course made my work simpler... I am glad to have made the right choice and grateful for his immense help to crack the examination successfully.
IFS Rank - 1, 2017 | IAS Rank - 92, 2017
I have learnt so much from the way Abhishek sir articulates and presents his thoughts. Thank you so much, sir, for your encouragement, guidance and support!
Prashant sir and Chiranth sir helped me immensely in covering Forestry in such a little time.
Abhishek sir, thank you so much for creating such an enabling and friendly environment!
IFS Rank - 1, 2016
I prepared both my optional subjects with Evolution for the Civil Service and IFS Examinations.
Despite being a B.Tech. in Computer Science, I mastered subjects like Botany with Forestry with reasonable ease and felt confident in the exams.
The classroom course and notes have been exactly in tune with the needs to the examination. For most of my preparation, I relied only on my class-notes.
IFS Rank - 2, 2017
Every member of the Evolution team (Abhishek sir, Suman ma’am, Chiranth sir and others) has been a source of immense help, support, guidance and motivation for me.
In fact, now I identify myself also as a part of it. While many persons & institutions helped me in achieving my & my family’s dream, Evolution’s was the most dominant force …the Optimus Prime. I shall always remain indebted to Evolution. Thanks a lot:)
