Vishal Khatri

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.

Lakshmi Nagappan

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.

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!

Vidushi

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.

Anupam Sharma

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:)
