Civil League – Optional Subject Course


One of the single most critical decisions, which is often overlooked, is selection of the ‘Optionals’ for the Mains examination. Leveraging our assessment capabilities during the ‘Counselling Session’, the team at Civil League prepares a winning strategy for an aspirant, where focus is on maximizing scores rather than pre-conceived notions of easy, moderate or tough optionals. We, at Civil League, not only assist you in selection of the right Optional subject but also enable its systematic coverage & assessment, thereby embarking on a strategy destined to provide success in UPSC and State Civil Service Examinations.


Civil League equips itself with best in-class faculty, whose credentials are ‘UPSC Examinations Qualified’, ‘PHDs’, ‘Ex-SSBs’ etc. The following optional papers are available from aspirants to choose from:
  • Sociology
  • History
