Dear ishita,

Your welcome ishita,we are here to help you in best possible way.



Btech is not a good combination with IAS, If its your ultimate target. IAS need a lot of hard work and dedication. Btech and IAS cannot be given time equally, both needs ample of time. So would suggest you that if you really think IAS is your main goal. Go for Bsc hons or pass course. And sit down study for IAS. BE FOCUSED , WORK HARD, HAVE SELF CONFIDENCE And YOUR GOAL IS FULFILLED.

All the best

Dear ishita,

IAS needs a lot of hard work and dedication. IAS exam is in three levels. Prelims, Mains and Interview. You can appear for the exam in last year of your graduation. Eligibility is graduation with 50% in any stream.

You can start off your preparation as you enter your graduation degree. So you get complete three years to prepare yourself foe IAS.

The essential ingredient of succeeding on an exam is the knowledge of the contents and structure of the exam and the process.


The Prelims are composed of two tests of two hours each. The General Studies (GS) test contains 150 objective, multiple-choice questions. It primarily covers six topics: the constitution of India, history, geography, economics, science, and current affairs. The second test is on a subject chosen, from among the 23 subjects, by the candidate. This objective, multiple-choice test contains 120 questions. The GS and second test are worth 150 and 300 points, respectively.

The Mains consists of 9 tests. The first two are language tests: first is the English Test and the second is the Language Test in any one of the languages included in the Eighth Schedule of the Indian constitution. Each test is worth 300 points. These tests are at the high school level. The candidates are expected to only qualify; the score from these tests is not included in the aggregate. The Language Test is not required for candidates from the North-East. The third test is an Essay Test, worth 200 points. The candidate can write the essay in English or in any other language included in the Eighth Schedule of the constitution. The next two tests, each worth 300 points, are on General Studies. The syllabus for each test is different. These tests aim to judge your awareness and well as your understanding and analysis of contemporary events. The remaining four tests, each worth 300 points, are on two of the optional subjects chosen by the candidate. The subject matter is consistent with the college level education.

The interview, worth 300 points, is the last stage of the selection process. Nearly twice as many candidates are invited for Interview as the number of vacancies.

For optional subjects, you should choose those subjects in which you have the most knowledge and greatest interest. Obviously, you need to master the constitution, history, geography, economic, science, and current affairs.

You should buy guide-books on the IAS exams to practice and prepare. May services are also available that offer interactive online preparation service. Approximately one year before taking the test, you can consider taking coaching classes. Your strategy for success must include: early, continuous, and serious preparation, starting right now.
