Dear Friend
Being forest officer is one of the challanging services in society which deals with forest ecosystem, living beings inhabited in forest and their security related issues, at the same time protection of wild life from human being as well as protection of human being from wild type animals are the day to day happenings in their job. Forest service are having different level of entrance test like state level of forest service which offers you ranger job, forest officer and adminsitrator job at divisional level. Similarly union public service comission cinducts Indian Forest Service which offers you conservator level or senior authoritative position of comissioner rank which make the policy to run the forest system where huge wealth is existing.

Before coming to that level of discusison you have to first think of preperation and start to collect the relevent materials but never forget your basic courses.

Look into the examination guidelines and criteria before appearing to these comissioned entrance tests. English is mendatory for IFS and other subjects like General sciences, and your subject of interset and optional are the qualifying subjects.

Aptitude tes is very crucial for your first level of entrance then you focus on your main subjects as per the guidelines, see the given marks against the concern subjects and cutoff marks depends on the final selection level.
As you know the level of competency which is required at individual level, make a habit to write the best themetic and scientific script which reflects your original creative mind only then you can say my candidature will be significant in exceptional manner. Millions of candidates are appearing into these competitions but few percents are prepared in real sense those understand the requirements not only in writting and speaking moreover while interviewing by esteemed learned panel you will be assed with the set parameters. Your original statement of entire perosna, intellect, aptitude will lead you to such prestigious success. Be ready with your mental toughness which is very important for the career pursuit. You can explore the safaryland through the television chanels or visit the forest lands and see the duty boundation and professionalism at their end.
