First, you should know that BBA is different from Anthropology. Anthropology subject is related to Physics or Biological Specialization. Those students who have studied Biology as a subject at graduation can take Anthropology as an optional subject. Since, you have belong from Management/Business specialization so it will create a problem if you take Anthropology as a subject for IAS examination. Please select the optional subject which is related to BBA course.

Yes, you can choose Anthropology as the subject to be eligible for IAS.

-As you are studying Bachelor of Business Administration you are eligible for IAS exam even after completing it.

So its better complete your BBA and then apply for IAS exam by skipping Anthropology.

If you are really interested in Anthropology then you can go for that course.

And after completing that course also you are eligible for IAS exam.
