    Hai Friend,

    No, you cannot become an IAS officer just with your 12th qualification.

    The minimum eligibility criteria to write the IAS is that you must have completed your Degree.

    So, first you complete your degree and then you will be eligible to write the IAS exam.

    Study Well and All the best.

    Notifications were published on official website of UPSC oe newspaper.

    Age limit : 21 years to 30 year.

    No. Of attempts allowed : Gen 4 times ,OBC 7 times and sc /st no limit......

    Civil Services examination consist in three steps :
    CSAT exam ( civil services apititude test)
    Mains exam.
    And interview.

    So to write IAS examination you must have to completd Graduation degree course.
