Iw ant to be an IAS officer which field I will choose

Papeya Dubey Student Expert 19th Feb, 2020
Hello,

The eligibility criteria for UPSC is to have attained 21 years ago and passed graduation in any discipline from a recognized university. Even, final year students are eligible.

If you're asking this question in context of the fact that UPSC is more humanities oriented, then let me tell you from the past few years people from engineering, medical have made it to topper's list. So, what matters in this case is a good planning and strategy.Also  this is the very reason UPSC has made no discrimination, hence allowed people from every stream to apply for it. If you're interested in humanities stream, then go ahead with your choice but don't make it compulsory one in order to crack UPSC.

Papeya Dubey Student Expert 19th Feb, 2020
Hello,

Eligibility Criteria for UPSC is to have attained 21 years age and passed graduation in any discipline from a recognized university. Even final year students are eligible to apply.

So, you can pursue graduation in any discipline to apply for UPSC Civil Service. Now, coming to year question UPSC is more humanities oriented, so people belonging to this stream are acquainted with the subject in a good way. Science students do not study these subjects at 10+2 level. But, having said that let me tell you in the past few years, if you look at the toppers of this exam, many people from engineering, medical too have qualified. Hence, this is the reason UPSC makes no discrimination and allow people from all discipline to appear for this.

is it possible to become IAS after b.tech 4 yrs course? what are the steps should take?

Papeya Dubey Student Expert 19th Feb, 2020
Hello,

UPSC Civil Service Exam consists of three level-

Preliminary
Mains
Interview


Preliminary numbers are not added in the final list, you just need to score the required cut offs against your category.It mainly consists of GS Paper-I and CSAT. Both consists of 200 marks, MCQs based.


Mains is more of a subjective type, one needs to write answer for Four General Studies Paper,Two Optionals, One Essay, two language paper, there are total nine papers here. 250 marks for each paper, total is 1750


You can go through the gradual steps as mentioned below in order to start your preparation for UPSC:


Be well acquainted with UPSC Syllabus, learn it by heart, that's the most crucial step to crack this exam, to know what to read and what to skip. In addition to this, never ever make a differentiation between prelims and mains, what I mean is do not prepare separately for each, because nowadays what's happening is even in prelims, UPSC frame questions based on Mains syllabus, So, the first towards preparation shall be a combined preparation for both.

Read 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.

Start with basics, for each subject, you can do with NCERTs for this.

As you progress, move on to other relevant books, keep your resources minimum like Polity by Laxmikanth, History of Modern India by Bipin Chandra etc.

Start practicing answer writing in advance, even in a little way, writing mains is a huge task for nine paper, it requires immense practice along with knowledge.

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 extensively dedicated to UPSC, , it's highly important to evaluate your performance while doing so.

Prelims is mcq based, but still it requires knowledge coupled with speed, and for mains, as I already mentioned the importance of answer writing.
