Since you already know that there is no compulsion of a particular subject in bachelor's degree for appearing in the Civil Services examination ( commonly called as UPSC examination ) so you should go for that subject which lies to your strength.

As it is physcological thing that the subject which lies to your strength will be the easier for you as compared to any other subjects which will result in good preparation with more confidence.

For more information about the civil services examination you can refer to the official link of UPSC i.e; www.upsc.gov.in.

# After going through your query minutely, I came to know that you are in dilemma regarding choosing of subject combination at graduation level and want to go for UPSC Examination in future.

# One should choose only those subjects at graduation level in which he/she wants to appear in IAS examination.

# Before choosing the subjects combination at graduation level, one should keep following points in mind:

* Optional subject opted by the candidate should be interesting and be easily understanding/accessible.
* Availability of study material/notes/books of optional subject.
* Optional subject should be high scoring.
* There should good past result record of that optional subject in UPSC Examination in last few years.
* Availability of good coaching centres in your city/town for the preparation of that optional subject.
* It is better to go for post-graduation degree in that optional subject.


# Few useful tips for the better preparation of UPSC Examination:

* Try to revise the syllabus regularly as many times as possible. Better revision helps in boosting self-confidence, better grasping of syllabus, better memorization of syllabus and better performance in difficult topics.
* It is recommended to consult NCERT and university author's book in the preparation of Civil Service Examination.
* Focus more on intensive study rather than extensive study. Your priority should learning the topics/subjects with better understanding and depth knowledge. Avoid cramming the syllabus.
* Make schedule for group discussion, quiz and doubt clearing session in the group which ultimately multiply your knowledge speedily.


# Eligibility criteria fixed for UPSC Examination (IAS Examination):

* Must be Indian citizen.

If you have completed graduation degree from a recognized university, then you are eligible for UPSC exams.

You can apply for Civil Service Exam, CDS, IFS exam.

But your age should be below 32 years.
