    For becoming an IAS officer, you have to qualify in the Civil Services Exam. To appear for the exam, you have to complete a Bachelorís degree in any discipline from a recognized university. The age limit for the exam is 21-30 years. Candidates should be well prepared for the Preliminary, Main and Interview round. You can attempt the exam 4 times. The prelims include two papers of objective nature. The fist paper contains general studies and the second one includes optional subjects. The main exam comprises of nine papers. You must be careful in choosing the optional subject. The study materials of subjects you selected must be readily available.

    Re: Can I become an IAS officer with 12th(Maths) qualification?

    hi there,
    For getting in to Indian Administrative Services, you are required to appear for civil services exams i.e. IAS exam. And for being eligible to apply for IAS exam, it is mandatory that you are age in between 21-30 yrs and possess a graduate degree in any discipline form a recognized university. Since you are class 12th at present, I would recommend you to first complete your graduation taking admission in BTech or BSc (in subject of your interest). And side by side start the preparation to fight the IAS prelims and Mains.

    IAS is the top profile job of the country and requires hard work and determination.

    All the best!
