Its sad to see that the Indian Goverment has not listed Computer Sciences as a subject.
However, if you can cope with mathematics, you can take it.

Or you should go with History and Psychology.
Both are easy subjects to score in.
Good Luck.

Since, there is no separate subject related to computers better you choose MATHS as that i think more related to you then other subjects.

hiiii,,,


>> The IAS exam is broken down into two successive examinations:

1.Preliminary examination for selection of candidates for the main examination.

2.Main examination after which successful candidates are selected for civil services.


♣Eligibility for IAS exam

Only Indian nationals who are above 21 years of age and under 30 years can apply for the IAS. Candidates must be graduates or must be undergoing the final year of graduation. Some of these eligibility criteria can be relaxed depending upon certain factors.

Preparation tips for IAS exam

>> It is best if you attempt previous years question papers. This will help you know your mistakes and weak points better. Additionally, it will help you in improving your speed and accuracy too.

>>Consider the question papers of previous years and see the pattern of questions asked and point out which types of questions are often repeated.


All The Best in Advanced
