Geology is considered a highly scoring subject. It is especially beneficial for candidates taking both the Civil Services and the Forest Services (IFS) Examinations.
With our guidance, getting 60 percent or more becomes easy in this optional.
Every year, about 55% of the Geology selections are from Evolution. In the last two years, some notable results have been:
Rahul Gupta - Rank - 22, IFS 2019
Abhishek Samria - Rank - 61, IFS 2019
Lekhraj Meena - Rank - 63, IFS 2019
Arvind Meena - Rank - 68, IFS 2019
Lakshmi Nagappan - Rank - 50, IFS 2018
The subject is a part of earth sciences. Nothing is left to the interpretation of the examiner and the content material is mostly facts. So, if you have written the correct answer, you should get reasonable marks. You can also increase your marks with diagrams and make the presentation better.
The syllabus is well defined and and the content material is mostly facts. This subject doesn’t need regular updation like some of the humanities subjects. There is very little current affairs linkage in this subject.
Plus, many topics in Geology are linked with physical geography which features in the General Studies Paper I.
Most of the questions asked are repeated. So, practicing previous year UPSC question papers diligently will reap benefits.
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 Geology 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.

Thank you so much for your valuable guidance throughout my preparation. I can confidently say that ” what I have achieved today is because of your guidance “.

I prepared both my optional subjects - Geology and Forestry - with Evolution for the Indian Forest Service Examination.
The course and notes were in tune with the needs to the examination. The personal attention from Prabhakar Sir was truly remarkable and very helpful.
He was extremely cordial and kind in entertaining my various queries, and guided me throughout the preparation.
IFS Rank - 63, 2019
The valuable guidance provided by Prabhakar Priyadarshi Sir regarding Geology was immensely helpful.The class notes and videos were exam oriented and covered the entire syllabus along with majority of previous year questions.
The topics were taught in such a way that there was an extensive interlinkages among various topics in the syllabus. And finally the use of coloured pencils definitely made the answers more appealing.
I am thankful to Sir for his guidance which proved valuable in finishing the syllabus on time and qualifying the exam.
IFS Rank - 68, 2019
Life comes down to a few moments at times. The decision we take in those moments define who we become and what we do. One such moment came into my life in last year June. I had never studied geology in my life but had qualified prelims exam for Indian Forest Services. As I sat in my table, contemplating which coaching to join to cover the seemingly impossible syllabus of Forest Services in mere 40 days, I took a decision that changed my life.
I choose Evolution IAS Institute over others and that has made all the difference. After UPSC found me worthy of selection with a score of 220 in geology and AIR 68 in Indian Forest Services Exam 2019, I could not thank Priyadarshi Prabhakar Sir enough. In a matter of mere 40 days, with his guidance and support, I was able to cover the entire syllabus with ample writing practise. His teaching style is unparalleled with absolute exam focused notes. In a simple, lucid language he explained most of the topics with effortless ease. And wherever I got stuck he was very welcoming to clear my doubts after class.Once again I am highly thankful to Priyadarshi Sir. Without him, my dream would not have come true.
IAS Rank - 45, 2018 | IFS Rank - 50, 2018
I had started my preparations for the Forest Mains post Civil Service Mains Examination . So I had 2 months to do everything from the scratch. I chose Geology and Forestry as my optional considering the fact that material was easily available and knowledge in Forestry could be of help in the interview too. Thankfully I came across a crash course on Geology hosted on the website of Evolution IAS under the guidance of Sir Prabhakar Priyadarshi (AIR 31,2017) . Joining this course made my work simpler because Sir had already provided his compiled notes, useful insights from external sources and explained the complex geological processes in a simpler manner. Certain topics like Mineralogy , Igneous and Metamorphic Petrology, Palaeontology which are generally scoring but ignored by candidates due to lack of conceptual clarity were made easy. Further I cannot thank him enough for telling us the importance of using coloured pencils in diagrams, trust me it did wonders. Also he was always available through email or phone despite undergoing training, this helped me clarify my doubts easily. I am glad to have made the right choice and grateful for his immense help to crack the examination successfully.
