Dear Aspirant,

For Civil services, you can become any graduate. There is no need for going for BA. Special coaching is required to crack civil services exams.

By special coaching I mean that the aspirant is highly recommended to join a coaching class which will teach and train the civil services aspirants in the right way. I would not suggest self study since more time may be consumed for studying and it is always better to have a guide and mentor while preparing for civil exams.

Hello Karan,
Welcome to Career Guide.com.
Thanks for visiting us and writing us your career query.
A Heartiest congratulations for scoring such a great marks in your std.12th.

Its good to hear that you have been aspiring to make a career in Civil Services and it seems that you are quite focused.

Answering your career query- Civil Service Examinations are conducted by Union Public Service Commission i.e UPSC apart from conducting Civil Service Examinations,UPSC also conducts various other competitive exams viz.NDA; CDS;SCRA;CAPF;IPS;IES(Engineering);IFoS etc.

When anyone who wish to apply for the civil service exam one needs to have a graduation degree from any stream. So if you see the notification of the civil service exam they have mentioned the eligibility criteria as a candidate who have completed graduation degree or is in the final year of degree from a recognised university is eligible to apply for the exam irrespective of the stream.

If you do your graduation from Arts i.e BA this will help you for the subjects like History,Geography,Economics etc. The plus point of Arts is students get used to for a thorough reading books and ability to learn the things in depth. This is the plus point of arts.
While i would like to suggest you see where your interest lies in Arts,Science or Commerce and select a stream as per your interest.

While go for the special training as suggested my colleague Dr.Anand Wadekar i.e join a good coaching for civil service exam preparation.The coaching will always help you to learn the things and to get a proper guideline from time to time from the experts.

You can visit the UPSC website for further details and notifications:-
www.upsc.gov.in

I hope you find this information relevant to your career query.

Feel free to get in touch again.
Wish you Good Luck thumbsup

Thank You
Warm Regards,
Prathamesh K.

Dear Aspirant,
Thanks for putting up your query here.

First of all you deserve congratulations for scoring 90% in your board exam.

My colleagues have already answered your query so I won't repeat what they have suggested.

Choose subject that is interesting for you:

For UPSC, you can do graduation in any stream. Art being choice of many civil service aspirant, you can choose subject that is interesting as well as scoring. Commonly, political science, sociology, psychology, economics are popular subjects. Score well in the exam. Your good Academic record will help you crack upsc exams.

Prepare for Preliminary exam from now:
Today, there are various resources to start preparation. First of all, buy books ( for GK, main subject) for exam. Secondly, subscribe to news paper ( the Hindu and any regional news paper), magazine ( like CSR, pratiyogita darpan, yojana etc.). Third, there are many websites that guide students for civil service exam preparation. They also conduct online mock exams. Enrol to such websites. Fourth, you can join private coaching when you have completed graduation. You can spare six months dedicatedly to preparation. Of course choice is yours.

Hope this is helpful for your civil service preparation!

Hi There,
Firstly I just wish to tell you, you need to be firm in your decision and stand by it at any costs.
Secondly, in-case if you happen to change plans, then you should be well prepared with proper explanation and justifiable but according to you.
Thirdly, stand by the reasoning you make.

The above explanation is one of the major criteria's for you to clear the UPSC exams.

But before that as mentioned by the above counselors, firstly clear your Graduation in a steam of your choice.
At the same time, begin preparations as soon as you can. By preparations I mean, lay your hands on any material you can, right from general to politics to social to language to your specialization at the Graduation level.
At the same time, just reading will not help, articulate it in your own words, expressing it is very very important.

At this moment, as a Counselor my advise would be to make a decision as to which area you would like to specialise in, as your future depends completely on your current decision.
In-case of confusion, my request would be to get to know your potentials better, so undergo an Aptitude tests and make a confirmed choice.

Hope this helps.
Wish you good luck...
