If you are interested to become an IAS officer then, you have to pursue your higher studies in Bachelor's degree courses like B.E, B.Tech, BBA, BCA, B.Sc., B.A., etc., of your interest after completion of your 12th standard with Science stream from a Government recognised board.

It is not mandatory to choose any particular subject in Graduation to become an IAS officer. You can opt for any stream of your interest in Graduation and after completion of your Graduation from a Government recognised university, you can apply for IAS examination.

As far as eligibility criteria is concerned, there is no requirement of specialized degree for IAS exam. You can opt for any subject for completion of degree because it is just a qualification to make you eligible for such exams.

It will be good, if you choose a subject which has good scope in private job sector. It will help you to get a decent job, in case you don't succeed in becoming an IAS officer.

I.A.S stands for Indian Administrative Service and for the selection as an I.A.S officer candidates have to appear and qualify in Civil Service examination.

The examination is conducted by UPSC and the eligibility to appear for examination is that candidate must have passed bachelor degree from a recognised university.

The candidates are eligible to pursue any discipline in bachelor degree. So, you can pursue course of your choice but have to qualify in Preliminary, Mains and Interview stages of examination for final selection.

For selection in all the stages you need better preparation and for that you need to do smart study.

To become an IAS there is no particular subjects.You can opt for any subject.When you apply for an IAS exam then for the preliminary test you will not get any choice, but for the main exam you will get the optional subjects to chose.So,whatever subjects you will study in graduation can opt for the same.

To become an IAS Officer you can study any graduation but my suggestion is B.Sc Computer Science.

* This course is more suitable for your career.
* To crack IAS entrance exam you need to do more hard work on your subjects.
* And these are the books to prepare for IAS Exam.

Books for preparation :

* Indian polity by Laxmikanth
* Geography of India by Majid Husain
* Indian Economy by Ramesh Singh
* A brief history of modern India by spectrum
* General Studies Based on NCERT Syllabus
* Certificate Physical and Human Geography

The eligibility to appear for Civil Service examination is :-

Candidate must have passed bachelor degree in any discipline from a recognised university.

Candidate's age must be between 21-32 years.

So, you can select any course in the bachelor degree if you want to appear for Civil Service examination which is conducted for recruitment as an I.A.S Officer.

But, it will be best for you to select the course in which you have more knowledge and interest so that it may be helpful if you can opt it as an optional paper for Mains.

You can pursue bachelor's degree in science stream in any subject like Physics, Chemistry or Biology etc. Second option for you is to apply for engineering entrance examination and pursue bachelor's degree in engineering. You can select your bachelor's degree subject as your optional subject so that you can do well in mains exam.

Candidates are free to select any subject as optional subject in Civil Services mains examination. The age limit is 21-32 years. You must start your preparation for this exam from second year of bachelor's degree so that you can complete your syllabus on time.

Although there are many courses available in Graduation it is highly recommended to go with the course you are mostly interested in. Yes, you are the person to choose which is suitable to you in Graduation. As there are many streams available in Graduation, each one of the courses has it's own specializations and career Opportunities. There are traditional courses namely B.A (Arts), B.Com (Commerce) and B.Sc (Science) based courses. Besides these, there are other courses called Professional courses. You may go with B.E/ B.Tech from a recognized University. If you are really interested in core subjects, I would strongly suggest you to go with Traditional courses and preferably Bachelor of Arts course.
