Questions related to UPSC Civil Services Exam
after 10th ,which subjects take to easy to prepare IAS ,, UPSC exam
There are two ways to decide your career path regarding your query, if you're completely focused towards only cracking Civil Service Exams, then choosing humanities stream will give an edge undoubtedly, as UPSC is more humanities oriented, so you may choose to pursue graduation in political science, public administration, law, economics, geography, history etc. Another thing is to have a back up plan regarding this, you have to remember that right now you're only in class 10th, so there's lot to explore for you in terms of your skillsets, aptitude, interest areas, if you have any preference for other streams such as engineering or medical, then it even after pursuing these fields you can appear for UPSC, for example many engineering/medical or for that matter any other working professional they gain few experiences in their respective field and then apply for UPSC, and let me tell you one thing very honestly, the success of UPSC is dependent entirely on the dedication, planning, preparation of the candidates, yes we may argue humanities candidates are well acquainted with the subjects unlike in case of say science or other field students, but then they do the work from the scratch, and if you have single-minded focus, determination and perseverance, you'll sail through this no matter what stream you belong, what subject combinations you've at 10+2 or graduation level, so think through this all and then take a decision with clear mindset.

Now let's say you also crack UPSC, if you want to study MBBS, you should appear for NEET. As of now, there is no upper age limit for NEET and so if you have secured a minimum aggregate of 50% in Physics, Chemistry and Biology, you are eligible for NEET. It is 50% for General Category, 45% for PWD and 40% for OBC,SC,ST. Now the upper age limit has been put on hold. And we do not know how long that might be the case. But if you crack UPSC and become an IAS officer, you cannot study MBBS and work at the same time. You have to go on a student break, complete your MBBS and then come back and join your duties.
