Indian Foreign Services(IFS)

To join in the IFS you need to go through the Civil Service examination.Based on the marks which you will achieve in both Preliminary and Main stages you will have a chance to opt either for IAS,IPS,IFS,IRS.If your marks are low then you will only have limited options to choose hence try to score better.

You can go through the examination if your between the age group of 21-30 with a graduation degree from a recognized University.
