For IPS, you need to be a graduate for appearing for the exam. You also have to meet their physical standards after you have cleared the entrance test. The entrance exam comprises of three sections Preliminary Examination which covers objective type questions, Mains which is subjective type questions and personal interview questions. IPS exam also have some specific physical requirement which are different from rest of the Civil Service exam.

Female 150 cm Pahari Female (general also) & ST (not SC/ OBC)- 145 cm
Chest – Male Minimum 84 cm. Expansion 5 cm.
Female Min 79 cm expansion 5 cm.
Eye sight – 6/6 or 6/9 distant vision for good eye. 6/12 or 6/9 for worst eye. Near vision J 1 for good eye. J2 for worst eye.

I am sorry to say that you are not eligible to become IPS officer soon after the completion of your 12th class.

The reason being, you should have completed your Graduation with any of the stream from a recognized university in order to be eligible for the selection procedure to become IAS officer.

The selection procedure will be
CSAT (Civil Services Aptitude Test)
Civil Services Main Exam

Civil Services Exam is being conducted by UPSC (Union Public Service Commision) once in a year to recruit the candidates into various civil services like
Indian Administrative Service
Indian Police Service
Indian Revenue Service etc.

The required age criteria for the candidates will be

For General category : 21-30 years.
For OBC category : 21-33 years.
For SC or ST category : 21-35 years.

I suggest you to opt for the Graduation in the stream in which you are interested and where your strengths are being fully utilized.

Make most out of your course by gaining good subject knowledge and start preparation for IPS Exam from the very beginning of your Graduation course.

Then you will complete the syllabus on time and you can easily crack the written exam.

Wish you all the best.
