Hello. I don't intend to spam but I am preparing for UPSC 2021 and need peers with mathematics optional or just a forum discussion group where people can ask questions and initiate discussions. As most people with math optional also opt for IFoS, this link might be useful for other aspirants in a similar situation like me, on this discussion group:

I have created a group for math optional people. Please join if interested.

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

I want to apply only for IFoS  this year.I have some questions regarding the same 

1. are CSE and IFoS attempts counted separately? I have only one attempt left for CSE and 2022 is also going to be my last attempt age wise so I have decided to try for CSE one last time next year. I have not appeared for IFoS till now. so is this going to be counted as my 1st attempt?

2. I have spectacles(myopia) will that be a problem? also my doctor has suggested me for lasik surgery ..is it allowed?

@Curiosity IFoS attempts are separate from CSE. For medical standards, kindly read notification once. Shouldn't be an issue I guess.
