Course details

A short introduction

Forestry is an optional subject just for the Indian Forest Service Examination.

By far it has been the most popular optional in the IFoS and it accounts for about one third of all the selections in any given year.

The subject has earned its popularity for many reasons.

  1. The syllabus is short and easily manageable
  2. Much of the subject is of such nature that it can be well understood by student of any background
  3. The subject has been well scoring with a remarkable consistency.
  4. Many areas of the syllabus (esp. those related to forest types, management, Forest Policy, JFM, Wildlife

    Conservation etc.) directly help in General Knowledge and the IFoS Interview.

  5. With help of some recent information culled from newspapers and magazines, it is possible to raise the score

    level considerably.

What the Toppers say about us

Vaibhava Srivastava

All India Rank - 1, Indian Forest Service Exam, 2017

I have learnt so much from the way Abhishek sir articulates and presents his thoughts. It used to be absolute pleasure for me to just listen to him. 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. Prashant sir was extremely cordial and kind in entertaining my various queries, and guided me throughout the preparation.

Abhishek sir, thank you so much for creating such an enabling and friendly environment!


All India Rank - 1, Indian Forest Service Exam, 2016

I prepared both my optional subjects with Evolution for the Civil Service and Indian Forest Service Examinations. Despite being a B.Tech. in Computer Science, I mastered subjects like Botany with Forestry with reasonable efforts 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, while the study materials served as excellent reference resources.

I was also with Evolution for Interview Guidance and Test Series. I must say that the personal attention – especially from Abhishek Sir – was truly remarkable and went a long way in sharpening my preparedness and keeping myself motivated.
