How to become an IPS officer after the 12th ?


It’s good to have strong ambitions and have questions how to become an ips officer after 12th in the early stage of life which will enable you to prosper at large so early. I would say for your query out rightly, that you yet have time to appear in the civil services exam, i.e. IAS/IPS exam. And this examination is conducted on the basis of a Bachelor's Degree and not on the 12th or any such equivalent education level. There is no need to acquire specific or higher marks in your 12th and in Bachelor Degree and what it requires that is simply passing these education levels to be eligible for appearing in the IAS/IPS (CSE) Exam. There is no role at all for the 12th level of education in this process and whoever has a bachelor's degree from a recognized university with simple passing can fill up the application form to appear in the exam.
