    hi…im an engineer. i have geography as my 1st option and want to know a few things about philosophy before i decide to take it as my second option.
    1)is philosophy a subject like pub. ad. where the fluctuation in marks is very prominent??
    2)being an engineer and having no background in philosophy is it an apt subject for me or not??
    3) how long will it take me to finish its course if I think of studying GS along with it giving it only the 2nd priority??

    it would be a great help to me if anyone can give me a genuine suggestion regarding my queries…
    thank you
