    Re: Am I eligible for IAS entrance exam after completing MCA(after graduation in Arts)? What is the fee for the IAS entrance exam?

    Yes off course you are eligible to appear for IAS(Indian administrative services) examination or CSE(Civil services exam)
    as you have already qualified your graduation and the minimum qualification required in order to appear for civil services
    exam is to have a graduation certificate.As far as the fee is concerned, it is very nominal and ranges from 500 to 1000
    rupees so that students from all strata of society can appear for the same.

    Basically the process of becoming a IAS, IPS, IES or IRS can be explained as follows:
    1)Preliminary exam-
    It is an objective examination in which questions are asked from various sections such as mental ability, quantitative aptitude,
    english, etc.

    2)Mains exam
    It is the second stage and you would be eligible for that only if you are able to clear the first one.It is a subject exam consisting
    of a number of exams.Basically you would be required to select subjects on the basis of your own personal choice.

    3)Personal Interview-
    This is the third stage.This is the most crucial stage and you can select a language in which you want to appear for the
    interview provided the interviewer is able to understand the same.
