Hi after reading your query

I decided to tell you about the IAS exam more precisely. Well,Lets start with details of the exam.

IAS is a civil service and also one of the most prestigious Indian Civil Services. To become an IAS officer you have to clear a most competitive exam called Civil Service Exam.

This exam is conducted by UPSC,Which is a constitutional body.

Eligible persons for this exam are :

those who completed their degree
and
those who have 21 years of age minimum.

you have to get the above eligibility criterion before getting registered to this exam.

Now I made you clear about Exam,its eligibility and when to apply for it.

Starting preparation :

Civil Service Examination(CSE) is not a exam which is equal to other common entrance exams.

Just by by-hearting something you can achieve success.
you need to have passion in you to clear the exam and become a civil servant with a divine thought in your inner.

you can start your preparation according to your desire. if you want to crack the exam and become a all india topper you have to start preparation from this moment only.

if you just want any of the service in that exam then it is enough to prepare from 1 year before of the exam.

I think your aim is to be an IAS officer if that is right, then you need to work hard a lot.
There will be huge competition.

This exam doesn't check your academic standards or anything like that. It checks the applicant's attitude,IQ Level, Justification power, Righteousness , Kindness.

all these will be tested in the form of your answers.
for that you need to develop your personality not physically but mentally. For this you need to have a deep interest on Book Reading, Unlimited thurst to know new and old things.

you should be able to apply the moral values in your day to day activities.
to get these qualities you can do a lot of things like

->Reading autobiographies of great eminent personalities.
->Following News through print and paper media.
->Discussing various burning topics with various people to know the actual human pulse.
->To study the general needs for a citizen of India.
->Should know various types of livings.

and many more can be added up to this list. It is endless till your creativity exists.

Coming to suggestion on Books.

Every book can be linked up to the preparation for IAS Exam or CSE Exam, Because the questions in IAS will not ask you the matter in the book which you have read. it will expect a view and analysis about the asked topic.

hope you understood how to start your preparation now. First of all before starting preparation you research more about Indian Administrative service and the exam . Then you can make plan to prepare and achieve it.

If you find out the best way. No doubt you going to achieve it for sure.

All the best dear

Regards

NO, You cannot apply for the IAS exams in your first year of BTECH

If you want to become an IAS officer than in that case you have to give the Civil Services Exams conducted by UPSC


Minimum eligibilty to apply for the UPSC Civil Services exams is:

Education: Graduation pass in any stream from a recognized university
No minimum percentage of marks is required in Graduation

Age- Minimum 21 years
Maximum 30 years
OBC can apply till 33 years
SC/ST can apply till 35 years

Attempts/Chances: UPSC has also fixed number of attempts
General- 4 times
OBC-7 times
SC/ST-No Restrictions
