Full form of IAS is Indian Administrative Service. To become an IAS officer you need to sit for a civil service exam which is conducted by the Union Public Service Commission.

Please Note:- This exam is strictly for the citizens of India.

For the IAS exam all you need is a graduate degree. The degree can be attained in any discipline of your choice since the subject you choose at grad level is of little significance here.

The degree you have attained can be of any class. Even degree attained by distance education will be accepted if it has been obtained from a recognized university. If you are a final year student then also you can apply for this exam.
