why   political science?

While Politician should know the art of politics, a successful   Bureaucrat should know the science of politics.

Political Science enables the aspirant to achieve this by

offering the shortest route to Victory.

Demerits   of   political   science



Simone de Beauvoir(1908-1986)

Inspite of all its merits,political science doesnot remain a highly popular optional like public administration.This is primarily due to the scarcity


 of good institutes for   the preparation,as students are often misled by advertisements and false claims.With a committed teacher, political science

 is   more scoring than public administration and a score of 330+ comes very handy.
