Well IAS preparation requires a lot of effort...but I dont think at your Age it will be right to start for IAS coaching....because you will be disheartened and over stressed to see the vast syllabus...and you havent yet reached that level for preparing for IAS...I suggest you concentrate on your basics first then try for preparing IAS

Its good that you decided what you want to be in your future.
Just what you need to do right now is to have command on all your subjects and do equally good in each.
I am saying so because for becoming an IAS officer you need to be an all rounder person and have command on each subject.
The sylabus of this examn is so vast that you have to study each and every subjects and you cannot leave any one.
so when your basics will be strong you can prepare well for exam in future.
Best wishes!

Its good to know that you decided your aim. So what you must do right now is to daily listen the news and just try to observe the things all around you which is happening.
You can make yourself commanding in maths , reasoning, english,general awareness etc.
Just go through the NCERT history and science books, refer to pratiyigita darpan and see the question pattern for last years.
Decide the subject which you will opt in your exam

You have taken right subjects in your graduation keeeping your main aim in centre.
So right now read all the syllabus with great concentration and with clear concept so that during preparation you only have to just revise the syllabus.
try to keep update yourself with all the recent changes and see news daily to increase your general awareness

Hi,

This is a good start for such a long journey.
you should read the editorial pages of newspapers like The Tribune, Hindu and read magazines like pratiyogita darpan to horn your social skills and current affairs.
you should concentrate more on subjects like history and geography as these two are the most choosen subjects for IAS exam.
Good Luck for the future

as far as ias preparation in concerned you require lots of dedication,
as a first step of doing preparation start reading the Hindu paper regularly and make an note of all the important events,
as now the pattern has changed start doing the aptitude part daily,
for that follow the best materials of time institute ,
and also prepare for the your subjects which you are going to take in the mains exam
all the best

If you want to preparation for IAS exam from class 10th then it is good for you. I advise you to do well in the class 10th, 12th and in graduation. You can read daily English news paper and monthly general knowledge magzine.
It is helpful in your preparation.

first of all she/he is not young to think over IAS
as for IAS you must be graduate and then you can appear for the exam
what you have to do is choose wisely your subjects for your school
keep a keen interest in current affairs via news ,newspapers any means
and you are all set
and its a very nice field to go into
wish you luck

Congratulations to all of you young kids for having sorted out your life goal.
... Its a really good thing to start early,you get time to chart out your plan and take steps to materialize them,In fact almost all the toppers of national level exam start around 9th.
Now first of all you should should start with magazines like Chronicle, CSR, Yojna, Pratiyogita darpan etc.These are IAS focused publications and provide you with good articles IAS interviews,current affairs articles on preparation strategy, previous papers.
Next you need to start practice writing :: you need to write essays try sending them to magazines to get them published,arite arguments counter arguments, critical anaalysis...
.... letme make it simple just write 2 pages per day to start, if you get better go to 3-4 pages etc.
you can also work on your optionals if you like.
At the end:: Take is easy.

It is too early to start preparation for IAS. The minimum eligibility for IAS is a graduation degree with a candidate.

So plenty of time is there in your hand. So what i suggest you is to get good grip on general knowledge by the time to appear for the IAS exam.

For this go through News papers, news channels and magazines.

In addition, be good enough in various aspects of Aptitude.

From this academic year,the pattern of IAS will be as follows
1) CSAT - Civil Services Aptitude Test
2)Civil Services Main exam
3) Personal Interviews.

Give first preference to your academic subjects and try to see that you will secure good percentage in that.

Thumbs up Re: Starting IAS preparations from 10th class

Guys.

I appreciate your interest towards Civils

but,

There is no need of concentrating for preparation..right from the 10th class on

the subjects of civils are not at all related to 10th class but you'll get the basics here

all you need to do at this age is build more and more interest towards Civils

by grabbing

the

General Knowledge

Current Affairs

International effects of India

and more about country

all history,geography ,economics,civics, science,and what not..

all you have to do is

build as much as knowledge you can..

that's all i can say ..as of now in my state of words..

wishes

Start reading newspapers from now on on a regular basis.It would do more than what is actually required for your preparation from now on.Be aware of what is going on around the world and in your country as well to be updated and to be able to answer any types of questions you would expect in the qualifying examination.Well,there is a vast portion to b covered for the 4respective examination you are aspiring to appear in but for that , your basics should be quite strong and you should have a very good command over all your subjects.So start preparing from now.Wish you the best of Luck !
