To become an IAS(Indian Administrative Service) Officer, one has to crack Civil Service Exam conducted by UPSC every year.

The eligible candidate must be an Indian National having either appear for the final Graduation Degree exam or pass in any stream from a recognised University within the age of 21 to 30 years with upper age relaxation for reserved candidate.

There is no specific stream to be chosen after 12th to complete Graduation Degree for IAS, so a candidate from any stream of education is eligible for IAS.

The Civil Service can be applied through both off line and on line mode.

Through off line, the application Form can be obtained from General Post offices all over India and through on line the application Form can be downloaded from the official web site of UPSC i.e. http://www.upsconline.com

You can choose any stream in 11th, it will hardly make any difference. You will not stand to gain anything neither you will face any disadvantage. So Arts, Commerce or Science, none will help you out.

Therefore you can pick any stream but keep in mind that it will not offer you any advantage. You should study hard to become Indian Administrative Service officer. For which you will have to clear the Civil Services Examination.

The exam is conducted in two stages. First is preliminary exam where you will given one paper on general studies and one on optional subject. It is merely a qualifying exam thus the marks obtained will not be added to your final score.

The second stage is Main exam. You can only reach this stage if cleared the preliminary exam. It has particular signifigance because the marks scored in 9 written tests conducted under main exam will be your final score.

There will be 2 papers on general studies, one of essay, 2 on languages and remaining 4 papers on optional subject. You will have to select 2 optional subjects for the main exam.

Choose subjects that are related to your course. Don't go for engineering or other tough subjects that might bring your downfall.


Eligibility

1. Nationality: Indian nationals can apply.

2. Qualification: Bachelor degree in any discipline.

3. Marks: No criteria

4. Age Limit: 21 to 30 years candidates can appear.

Selecting arts in 12th and graduation helps you to qualify IAS to a certain extent. For prelims, there are questions on history, geography, polity, etc. Selecting arts as the main subject helps you to get well versed in these subjects. Anyhow you need to prepare for topics like general aptitude, English language, and general studies also.

It is good to see that you have aspiration of becoming an IAS officer some day. Okay let me tell you that the subject combination you choose at 10+2 level is of little significance here since all you need is to complete graduation to sit for this exam. So i would suggest you to choose subjects which interests you and you know you can handle well.

Indian Administrative Service, Indian Forest Service and Indian Police Service are the three top civil service exams you can give. There is a constitutional body called Union Public Service Commission which conducts this examination.

Eligibility Criteria:-

Nationality:-

=>You need to be a citizen of India.

Educational Qualification:-

=>You need to have a bachelor degree in any discipline of your choice from a recognized university.

=>If you are in the final year of your degree and waiting for the result or about to sit for your final exam then also you are eligible.

Age Criteria:-

=> Minimum Age Limit:- 21 years
=> Maximum Age Limit:- 30 years

Age Relaxation:-

=> Upper age limit relaxation is there for the following candidates:

~SC/ST Candidates: 5 yrs
~OBC Candidates: 3 yrs
~Differently Abled Candidates: 10 yrs
~Ex-Servicemen: 5 yrs

Number of Attempts:-

~General Candidates: 4 attempts
~OBC Candidates: 7 attempts
~SC/ST Candidates: Unlimited
~PWD Candidates: Unlimited

Selection Procedure:-

~Preliminary Examination
~Main Examination
~Interview Session

Prelim Paper:- For this exam there will be two papers and 200 marks have been allotted for each paper. The total time duration for completing the paper is two hours.

Main Paper:- There will be seven papers and 1800 marks have been allotted for the full exam. For the interview session 275 marks have been allotted. In the main exam the prelim marks wont be added. That is more like a screen test.

Hope this helps :-> :->
