From the year 2011 onwards, there will be no optional question paper in CSP [Civil Services Preliminary] exam. it has been replaced by CSAT [Civil Services Aptitude Test]. But yes, you can take Psychology in the Main Exam.

Hello friend,
You can chose psychology as your mains subjects. But you cannot chose it for the prelims paper, as the prelims paper is set with a defined set of subjects. The prelims exam is conducted in two papers
The subjects which you'll have to study in order to clear your prelims paper are
History of modern India, Indian economics, geography, current affairs of India and the world, basic science and Indian polity.
The subjects mentioned above are for the first paper of prelims. In order to study for the second paper. You'll further have to hold command of quantitative aptitude, which consists of basic mathematics and reasoning, and verbal English, which includes basic English in it
Gud luck.
