IAS stands for Indian Administrative Services. It comes under Civil Services. Union Public Service Commission conducts Civil Services Examination for recruitment to different services like IAS, IPS, IRS, IFS etc.

The time required to crack this exam depend upon your dedication and devotion towards this exam and a bit of luck factor also. Generally, 1.5-2 years of preparation is good enough to clear this exam, one or two failure can stretch the duration to four years also.

There are three stages of this exam namely Preliminary, Main and Personal interview. Failing at any stage will lead to first stage again.

Tips to prepare for this examination:

>>In first stage of preparation, try to complete NCERT books of social studies from standard sixth to standard 12th.

>>After that you can refer to standard books like Indian Polity by Laxmikant, Modern History by Bipan Chandra, Economy by Ramesh Singh etc.
