Choice of Optional Subjects
Students are advised to devote considerable thought and care to theirchoice of Optional subjects for the Main Exam since this is an important
decision for success. We provide the following guidelines to help students make this crucial decision:
(i) The student must remember that the standard for the Main Exam isof the Honours levelThe student will, therefore, need to acquire this standard in the chosensubjects in order to compete with those who have studied thesesubjects at the Graduate or Post Graduate level.14
(ii) It would, therefore, be advisable to choose subjects with which thestudent is already familiar to a large extent, having studied itattheGraduate/PG level.
(iii) Do not be carried away by the impression that some subjects areeasier to score in than others. Performance depends upon the levelof individual proficiency in the subject
.(iv) Students with an Engineering background often choose Mathematicsor Physics as an Optional, depending on how strong they arein those subjects.
(v) A non-engineering student should avoid the EngineeringSubjects - Civil, Mechanical or Electrical, unless he/she has at least a diploma in that subject. Similarly, if a student has not qualified in Law,either as a graduate or undergraduate, it would be advisable not tochoose Law as anOptional for the Main Exam.
(vi) Finally, the time available to the student and how quickly he or shecan come up to the level required for the Civil Service Exam should
also play a major role in the choice of Optional subjects.After the student has started his/her preparation, any change in the optionalsubject, mid-stream, will involve an additional charge and will alsoconsiderably upset the student’s schedule of preparation. It is, therefore,
Normally we will not accept any change in Optionals after enrolment.It is imperative, therefore, that the student exercises utmost care inselecting up the Optionals at the time of enrolment. However, inexceptional cases, where a change of Optional is unavoidable, such
requests for change must be received by us in writing preferably within amonth from the date of enrolment. Each such request will be considered
with a view to assisting the student to the best extent possible and thestudent will be advised of the additional charge involved. Payment must bereceived within two weeks, failing which it will be presumed that thestudent is no longer interested in the change and the despatch of study
materials in the existing Optionals will be resumed. Along with thepayment, the Student should also return the Admit Card, which will be
returned after recording the change of Optional. We, however, reserve theright not to effect any change in the Optional. Return of course material
will not be accepted under any circumstances in lieu of the fee for effectingthe change.Since we believe that any subject requires at least 6 to 8 months of in-depthstudy, a change of Optionals for the Main Exam will not be allowed afterApril 2012.ENROLMENT
