    Dear Friend,

    It is totally upto you whether you wanna select Maths as your optional subject or not.
    NO doubt Mathematics is very scoring subject if you have prepared yourself better for it.
    You need to do lot of practice to score very good marks in the Mathematics.
    But first you should ask yourself whether you are good in maths or not?
    Whether you can manage to cover the syllabus of Maths mentioned by UPSC?
    Whether you can do fast calculation without calculator?
    You can refer to various books to prepare for Mathematics Subjects like :

    Quantitative Aptitude by R.S.Agarwal
    Quicker Maths by M.Tyra
    Vedic Maths books.

    there are many other books also which are specially prepared for IAS aspirants.
    so you should check that out too.

    But ultimate decision is depended on you only my friend.
    Hope it helps you out.

    For any further query feel free to write back.

    Regards.

    Dear Friend,

    Yes , Maths is a very good optional subject for UPSC Exams .

    If you are good in maths , then you must have maths as one of your subjects to get more more as it requires only correct calculation and if you are good in maths , then you can score farbetter rather than other subjects.

    But at the same time , it totally depends on you that whether you are good in maths and do you have such an interest in maths that you can score well or not.

    This is because if you are not well in maths , then this subject will prove as a curse for you in the examinations. So , I Advise you to be selective at the time of choosing the subjects as UPSC Exams are the toughest exams which are conducted in our nation.

    This is the information i have to the best of my knowledge regarding your query. Hope the information will help you to the extent you want.
