Dear Aspirant,

After 12th Science, if you have the aptitude and if you can clear the NEET with a high rank, then MBBS should be preferred. But do not compare it with IAS. IAS and MBBS are two different career option which has no relation with each other in any way. So please do not compare. Both can also be done, since there are many IAS officers who are MBBS degree holders and they are working in health department primarily and other departments too.

However managing the studies for MBBS and IAS is difficult together and therefore you will have to plan very carefully. 

Completing MBBS is what I would recommend first since apart from IAS, you will be able to make a career and living by being a Doctor. After that, you may try for IAS exam and if you devote and practice and study, then you can definitely clear IAS exam.

Best wishes

Hello Tanvi, 

Sorry to say but you have compared two different field which have no similiarity and are pursued at different times.

MBBS is an undergraduate study and on completion you deal with patients health issues being a doctor. Whereas IAS is a governnent service dealing with the nations administrative and economy and other important national issue, pursued after one is a Graduate any field.

Please note you can pursue both the courses but would not do justice to either of the courses.

At the sametime as mentioned by the counselor above, you would not be able to dedicate enough time towards civil service exam preparations as it requures long hours of dedicated reading time and study time just like medical.

Thus I would suggest self introspect as to where your potentials and interest lies. Though an aptitude test would help you realis

In continuation to my answer, though an aptitude test would help in realising your potentials but you need to be clear where your interest lies.

That will help you make a confirmed choice.

Wish you good luck..
