now I am studying 12th ,MPC .So which group is best to select for writing IAS EXAM

Sharon Rose Student Expert 8th Nov, 2019

Hello Anuradha,

There's no such thing as best degree for IAS.You need to be a graduate to be eligible to appear for UPSC IAS exam.So, it depends on your present interest, you can pursue B.tech after passing your 12th, you can also pursue any other 3 year degree.The syllabus for IAS is not entirely same as any other degree syllabus.So it doesn't matter which course you choose.

But make sure that you pursue what interests you.

I hope this is helpful to you.
