A short introduction

Zoology being a science subject has a straight and clearly laid out syllabus. It has always been popular as a safe and scoring optional in the IAS and the IFoS.

The popularity of the subject has been due to:

  • Clear syllabus
  • High scoring nature
  • Interesting nature
  • Conceptual nature
  • Straightforward presentation expected
  • Role of diagrams and flow charts in scoring high

For scoring well in this subject, you have to know the core facts and concepts with clarity. You also need to know how to present your answer well.

During UPSC evaluation, there is always a great degree of objectivity because of the straight forward nature of questions. So, you can be sure of not 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. Therefore, with Zoology you can be fairly sure of scoring just on the basis your examination hall performance.

We have guided many students who have scored more than 60% marks in the IAS Main (a score, which is good enough to make you a top ranker). In the recent years, about 10% of the total selections in the IFoS too have come from this optional.

What the Toppers say about us


All India Rank - 1, Indian Forest Service Eaxm, 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.
