Dear aspirant !
Hope you are doing great ! Agriculture is a good subject as an optional ,also you must work hard for it but many toppers took subject like hindi, political etc ,and you decided to take a different subject ,however I am not saying that you won't qualify with this optional I am just want to say you will find some difficulties in this subject.
And for daily writing practice as all of experts says attempt mock test as many as you can .Go to different coaching ,attempt their daily sets ,it will help you a lot .

Sir I am class 12th PCM stdent and want to pursue my career in civil services so i want to do BA simultaneously with the IAS preparation coaching please suggest me which subject did I take in BA which can help me in my IAS preparation?
In my opinion you can go for BA Hons. Pursuing BA Hons. is likely to have 4 core and 2 elective subjects in your curriculum. However, a student studying general BA has the option to select all 6 subjects.
Political and Geography.
All the best.
I want to become a commercial artist and an IAS, is it possible? and how?
Hope you are doing well ! It is not possible to do two different things at a time ,If you want to become an IAS officer also then for that you have to do a lot of hardwork and have to leave your art passion for sometime , if you become an IAS then there will lot of responsibility on your shoulder ,you will not able to time time for other thing.So choose one ,choose best!
Hope it helps you!
hi I am Faisal I want to become a IAS but strategy is low please me share the opinion and prefer the books thanks
In order to initiate your preparation, the first and most important step is to be well acquainted with UPSC Syllabus , learn it by heart as this will enable you to know what to read and what to skip.
As per the recent trends UPSC is framing Prelims questions also based on Mains syllabus, so have an integrated approach, don't segrete the preparation part thinking once you qualify Prelims you'll prepare for Mains that doesn't work.
To cover such a humongous syllabus you will have to make a timetable,set targets on a daily,weekly and monthly basis,that's the only way to complete this extensive syllabus.
Newspaper reading is equally vital part of preparation, you can start with any newspaper like The Hindu, or Indian Express on a regular basis to be updated as well as gaining knowledge which shall be highly useful to you in future exam preparation part. Put a more emphasis on editorial part, it will not only broaden your perspective but help a lot in answer writing,and make sure whatever opinion you form it should be well balanced. You can also make notes of this,it'll be very useful in answer writing.
When it comes to reading books ,start with basics, for each subject, you can do with NCERTs for this. This will build your foundation strong,as you progress, move on to other relevant books as mentioned below;
For Prelims, you can refer the following books:
NCERT Class XI and XII
India's Struggle for Independence by Bipin Chandra
For Indian Culture, refer art and culture by Nitin Singhania
NCERT Class VI to XII
GC Leong's Physical Geography
NCERT Class XI
Indian Economy by Ramesh Singh
International Relations & Polity ;
NCERT XII Political Science with current affairs
Indian Polity by Laxmikanth
Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning by RS Agarwal
M Tyra's Quicker Maths
Coming to Mains Exam, you can refer the following books for four General Studies Paper;
GS I - For History , Class XI NCERT book with India's struggle for Independence by Bipin Chandra,India after Independence by Bipan Chandra,History of Medieval India by Satish Chandra. For Geography refer World Geography and Geography of India by Majid Hussain, GC Leong's Physical and Human Geography with NCERT Class XI book.
For GS II - Polity and International Relations , refer Indian Polity by Lamikanth,India's Foreign Policy by Rajiv Sikri
For GS III - For Economics refer Indian Economy by Ramesh Singh, read ARC report along with Economic Survey and Fiscal Budget.
For GS IV - For Ethics refer a book named Lexicon by Niraj Kumar, also you can go through study material of IGNOU.
Remember to keep your resources minimal, read one book many a times instead of many a book one time, as you have to retain so much of information so rely on only limited yet trustworthy resources and revision is the only key for remembrance.
Writing mains is a huge task, for nine paper it requires immense practice along with knowledge. So, you have to start practicing answer writing in advance, even in a little way, There are many sites which provide questions on daily basis you can avail that. Try to give a holistic viewpoint while answer writing by providing political,economical and social aspect. You can get topper's answer sheet from various sites, try to analyze and study them minutely, you'll get an ideas about what to write, how to express and present viewpoint in organized manner.
Practice previous year question paper which you can get from the site of UPSC, in addition mock papers, and test series which you can get it from any of the sites exclusively dedicated to UPSC, all these will help in scaling up your entire preparation level.

And prepare for your UPSC CSE exam .
For your reference I am providing you with a link to predict a college through JEE Mains rank
