Yes you are eligible for IAS entrance examination or which is officially called as UPSC Civil service examination.

The minimum eligibility requirement for IAS entrance examination is

->A degree from any discipline through a recognized Indian University.
->You should have minimum age of 21 years.

The maximum age limit is 30 years

if you are general candidate then the maximum limit for attempts is 4

as you already have many arts subjects in your core academic studies it is very good that you can easily select the optionals. as you have to select 2 optional subjects for the mains examination .

sorry forgot to tell you about the pattern of the examination
the pattern of the selection is three step procedure
->first is you have to clear a CSAT Entrance exam which is replaced in place of prelims
->Second is mains for which you have to select optionals as well as that you have to answer to few theory papers.
->third is interview which is conducted personally by 4-7 members which is conducted by UPSC through official authorized persons.

you can easily select them from your subjects as you are very familiar with them.

I think your doubt got clarified and once again to happy to tell you that you are eligible after your graduation in Arts stream

all the best for your preparation

Regards

~AdityA~

Hello friend,
There is no restriction regarding the combination of subjects in +2 or in bachelors degree program to be eligible for the IAS exam.
The examination is known as civil service examination and to be eligible for it, you just need to hold a bachelors degree in any discipline.
However, the combination of subjects you mentioned will definitely help you in the examination.
Assuming that you will pursuing your degree program in Arts stream, it will be beneficial for you having those combination of subjects.

To crack civil service examination, you must have good command over the following subjects:
General studies
English
Essay Writing etc.

So, as you have mentioned that you are a student of class 12, you have got sufficient time to prepare for the exam and all you need to do is to follow the syllabus of the exam and refer previous years question paper.

You are in 12th and 12th is not the educational qualification for IAS.

The minimum educational qualification is a graduate.

Your age should be between 21 years and 30 years....the age is calculated on the basis of 1st of August of the year applying for it.
[33 years for Sc/ST]

and don't worry about your subjects in 12th, they are absolutely okay for IAS

So right now , focus on your board exam of 12th, the exams must be coming.

And after taking admission in a college in any stream you like, you can start preparing for IAS. When you will be on your final year of graduation, you can also apply for IAS at that time.
