i am a student from biology stream i wish to become an ias which degree can i prefer
For becoming an IAS officer there is no restriction of degree choice , you can choose any degree of your own choice but remember one thing that is all the degrees you choose must be a graduation degree eg - BA , BSc , BTech , MBBS etc even students having post graduation degree can appear in UPSC exam . So any degree is preferable but must be atleast graduation because that is a necessary condition for eligibility .
But it is a general perception of taking BA in social sciences as questions are asked majorly from these subjects but you can have any degree of your own choice and then opt for exam . But for exam you must have knowledge about Indian History , Political Science , Indian Geography , General Studies and Current affairs , so apart from degree programs of your own choice you can join online coachings or coachings near by your college or even prepare on your own through different books , websites and YouTube etc.
Here is links which tells you about Eligibility criteria and exam pattern based on which you can make your decision :-
Hope this will help .
Should a 11th class student start preparing for UPSC ( IAS ) from 11th class ownwards itself or from college ownwards ?
Hi Raghav ! UPSC has got a vast syllabus ,but basics are always important . I would advise you to study sincerely whatever is there in course . But don't sweat it. Just cover the syllabus in your course properly.
During the final year of graduation , you can start preparing for the exam in a structured manner. Now if your basics are strong , it would prove to be the brownie point for you , as you would only have to brush them up , and focus on learning the new content more.
Hope my answer would clear your doubt.
