My Background: I am G. Rohith. I have done my B.E in Computer Science Engineering from BITS Pilani, Hyderabad Campus. I Secured AIR-35 in Indian Forest Service Exam 2017. I had enrolled into class room programme of IMS (Institute of Mathematical Sciences) under guidance of K. Venkanna Sir.
Every mark in competitive exams like IFoS and CSE counts and the optional subject should provide us the scope to outperform other optionals. There is no better optional in this regard than maths and history of topper marks with maths of last decade prove that.
Strategy of Preparation: To excel in maths one need to have conceptual clarity other than working hard. In this aspect K. Venkanna Sir (IMS) has helped me a lot, especially in dealing with tougher topics like Modern Algebra and Real Analysis. His Class notes are perfectly sufficient and cover topics which even standard text books missed out on.
Test Series: Maths preparation doesn’t end with Completion of syllabus. It needs thorough practice. For this IMS Test Series Programme is must. Most of the questions in both IFoS and CSE appear from K. Venkanna Sir’s Test Series. Test series would also help to rectify mistakes which otherwise could dearly cost in the final examination.
I would also like to take this opportunity to thanks K. Venkanna Sir who supported over the preparation years has been invaluable. I wish I had joined his classes much earlier.
