Dear Priyanka,

Its fully depends on your career interest. As you said that you are professional Yoga blogger its additional advantage to appear IFS. you can go for prepare IFS side by side but, remember the competition is very tough you should give maximum time to clear it.
Selection Procedure:
The officials of the IFS are selected by the Union Public Service Commission through a three-stage combined selection process called the Civil Services Examination, known for being extremely challenging, that recruits officers for 20 other Group A services and five Group B services.

The first stage, the Civil Services Prelims is composed of two objective exams: one of General studies and one of a subject of one' rel="nofollow"s choice amongst a given list of subjects.This is purely an eliminatory stage and plays no part in the final rankings. Second stage Civil Services Mains.


The second stage is more exhaustive. It has nine papers of which two are only qualifying in nature.
One has to choose two optional subjects of one's choice as compared to one in the Preliminary stage. There are two papers of General Studies, Optional 1 and Optional 2 each of 300 marks and one Essay paper of 200 marks. The exam is for a total of 2000 marks. Around 1200-1400 aspirants clear Mains and sit for the third stage i.e the Civil Services Interview which is for 300 marks. Every candidate is asked to choose their preference of services before the interview. Most choose IAS as their first choice but a few opt for Indian Foreign Service.

The entire selection process lasts fifteen to twenty months. Repeated attempts are allowed (maximum of 4 times). About 300-400 are finally selected each year out of the nearly 400,000 appearing. But only a rank in the top 50 guarantees an IAS or IFS selection. This translates into an acceptance rate of 0.01%. It is due to this reason that IAS / IFS officers are highly respected in Indian society.




Thanks.

Hello,

You have choose a good career option related to the Foreign Service but you have one more option available to make career.

The Lectureship and Research program is the best option for you. If you complete masters in any of the subject related to the Arts, Commerce and Humanities you can make career in the lectureship and Research program.

The Eligibility to apply for the Lectureship program is doing masters in the related subject. You need to complete masters with around 55 % marks. For the Reserved and Women candidate the score required is 50 % marks only.

The NET Exam is conducted in two phases UGC NET Paper 1 and Paper 2 

Paper 1 is aptitude section and Paper 2 is related the masters. The Paper 2 is mainly conducted in the subject you have completed masters program.
