Mechanical Engineering is a branch and not a subject..

When you fill in your two optional subjects for the Mains exam..you need to fill the subjects not the branch..

At that time..you can fill one core subject of your mechanical stream and the other subject as Physics..that won't be much of a problem..

Eligibility Criteria :-

According to the UPSC guidelines..a candidate must satisfy the following criterion to appear for the Civil Service Exam :-

1) You need to be a graduate or a final year graduation student in any stream from a recognized college..

2) You should be in the age limit of 21-30 years for general category,21-33 years for OBC and 21-35 years for SC/ST

The maximum number of attempts allowed for the general category is 4,for OBC it is 7 and for SC/ST there is no limit..


Exam Pattern :-

There are 2 rounds for clearing this exam

1) Prelims :- This round..also known as Civil Service Aptitude Test(CSAT) has 2 objective papers which will test your general knowledge,current affairs and aptitude..

2) Mains :- If you clear the Prelims,then you shall qualify for the Mains where you will face nine papers..where your knowledge of your graduation subjects shall be tested..

NOTE :- For the Mains..you need to select your two optional subjects where you can put in your options as one Mechanical core subject and the other subject as Physics..

If you clear both the rounds..you shall be called for the interview and the final selection..


all the best..

With Warm Regards
"Nitz"

Dear pal,
Half the battle of clearing the paper is won if you select the write optional paper.
You need to choose the paper wisely.I think you have chosen then papers correctly as the papers suits you more than others papers.
Mechanical paper is a right choice you can choose maths instead of physics if you are get at maths .Physics is also a good subjects.I recommend maths as you would have learned maths during 5 semesters.All the best
