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.

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 this education levels to be eligible for appearing in the IAS/IPS (CSE) Exam. There is no role at all for 12th level of education in this process and whoever has the bachelor degree from a recognized university with simple passing can fill up the application form to appear in the exam.
