@Neyawn Can you please guide me on choosing one optional for IFS? I have one optional sorted out but for second optional I am confused between Chemical Engineering and Forestry. 
Chemical engineering because I have done my under graduation in it but my concern is its relative performance compared to forestry.

Look the trick to crack a competitive exam with a vast syllabus is by making it easier for ourself to do well, and then actually do well. Don’t do things that increase you workload . You will

anyway have plenty to study .

Geology people have taken usually when they either had it for Civils or had geography optional. But Agri engineering wins because of Scorability.

Take a look at the ifs guide athttps://blog.ForumIAS.com/ifs 

It was written eight years ago, by drsheldon and then edited by a user VIP (dfo of Andaman right now) and last year also when I was working on updating it with current year forum members who cleared the exam , some of the things remained the same. And optional choosing was one of them.

Need suggestion. Can anyone tell me which optional can be completed between CSE mains and forest mains. I have physics background so one optional is sorted(hope so🤣).I have absolutely no idea about the other one.

Go for any popular optional. Forestry seems more like it.

Thank you sir. Everyone is suggesting forestry. Wahi karenge.

There is no problem being a part of the crowd as long as you are a little ahead.

Do well :)
