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 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.

It's fine  if you are learning in your MBA then finish the degree. It's not good to leave anything or anywork in middle way.

On the part of IAS, there is no barrier for it. any person can give it after graduation. So you can do a better practice and apply for it. give your best in the exam and you will be able to clear it for sure if your are highly dedicated and you know how to make concepts strong.

Hope it helps!


Hello . present iam studying 3 rd year ,my question is after b tech how can i become an IAS . and actually i dont know how to prepare UPSC exam and when the exam is conducted.?so please can you tell.

Arya 9th Nov, 2019

For eligibility to answer UPSC exam, you need to be an Indian citizen, be a degree-holder and be of age 21-32 years old.

There are three rounds of examinations which are held.

First is the preliminary round. This has two written exams of 200 marks each. For paper-1, you need to have a very in-depth knowledge of India and her culture, mythology, art, geography, political systems etc. for paper-2, one needs to have excellent reasoning and logical sense along with English Proficiency.

Second comes the Mains round. It consists of a nine-paper written examination on General Studies 1, 2, 3, 4, English, Essay, one Indian language from a list provided and two papers on a subject to be selected by the candidate.

The interview, also called the "Personality Test", very minutely measures the candidate's professional conduct and decorum.

Upon passing this rigorous ordeal, the candidate is granted a job in one of the Indian Administrative Services.

Hello Prayash,

Do not be discouraged.When you are determined you can achieve anything with hard work.Let me clear you something, the questions will be asked both in Hindi and English and you can answer them in any scheduled languages of India which means that if your regional language is Hindi you can attempt the paper in Hindi.However, your English skills are also important.You can start learning it from now.You can join as well join in a coaching centre.Start reading English newspaper, watch English news, start talking with your friends, siblings, cousins in English, do not feel shy if you commit any mistakes learn from mistakes.Do not loose confident.You can also talk in English with yourself.You can join in any good coaching centre for preparation of UPSC.

When you consistently put efforts in learning English you will definitely improve your English skills.

And your English is quite good :)

I hope this is helpful to you.
