Dear friend
For being or qualifying for IPS / IAS exam you must have a graduation degree.
Then you have to prepare for UPSC -civil services exams.
I would suggest you that if you are best in ur graduation subject the take that paper for appearing in civil services otherwise you take any other easy paper other than in which you did graduation. You will have a chance of scoring high.
Rather you must have a little bit aptitude skills.

Hope you find this information useful.
