    For appearing in IAS examination, you need to be a degree holder. After completing plus two, you can go for a graduation in commerce. If you want to be an IAS Officer, you have to write the Civil Service Examination. The commission responsible for conducting the civil Service Examination is UPSC. The duration of the examination is two hours. Candidates are provided with a chance to select an optional subject for this exam. If you are pursuing graduation in commerce stream, you can select commerce as your optional subject. As a competitive exam, a thorough preparation is needed for this exam. Three stages are included in the civil exam. Candidates have to appear for a Civil Service Aptitude Test and after clearing this test you should attend for the final exam. The final selection process involves the interview.

    to become a IAS officer you need to be a graduate.
    since you have completed your 12th with commerce then go for graduation with commerce like b.com
    then after completing your graduation you can give IAS exams and become IAS officer.

    Re: Can I become IAS officer after completing 12th with commerce stream?

    No, it is not possible for any student to appear for CSE(Civil services exams) just after qualifying higher secondary exams.
    The reason being he or she is not able to satisfy the minimum eligibility criteria which must be satisfied by an individual to appear for these exams. In other words
    a student must have at least a graduation degree from any discipline from a recognized university to appear for civil services examination.

    So, it is not possible for you to appear for these exams as you have not yet completed your graduation.
    So, the correct course of action would be first to get admission in a college of your preference,you must select a course according to your personal interests as well as potential
    and after securing a seat in that college, then you would be eligible to pursue that course.

    And it is also a fact that many students select those subjects which they have already studied or may be opted for at higher secondary or at graduation level.
    So, you can also select subjects that are more related to your respective field that is commerce.

    Then after completing your graduation,you would be eligible to appear for these exams.Till then you must concentrate on your undergraduate course. You must try to score a good
    percentage in graduation as it can prove very helpful as well as beneficial to enhance your career prospects.

    And if you want to start your preparation for the civil services exams, then you can start preparing for them before right from the second or third year of college.Many students
    start their preparation right from the college level and later on they have to just once revise their course so that they can brush up their concepts.But Civil services is
    such exams which require a student to be updated of the various current events happening in the country.He or she should have knowledge of all new developments
    taking place in the economic, administrative, political, international spheres.

    CSE is an exam which is conducted by UPSC(union public service commission) all over India which can be appeared by candidates from any discipline and any state.
    The procedure to become an IAS can be summarised as follows:-
    1)Preliminary exams-
    Firstly you have to appear for preliminary exams which are usually conducted in the month of June.But before appearing for the exam, you have to fill a form or we can say
    application form.The form is usually available at post offices and t is also not so costly.
    But the number of attempts are restricted for different categories for example the number of attempts for general category are restricted to seven.

    2)Mains exam-
    The next is the mains exam. A student who has cleared the previous level is eligible to sit for this exam. The exam is a subjective examination and the student is required to
    select subjects according to his or her own preference.This exam required thorough preparation as the question asked may be very descriptive and the candidate needs to
    have full knowledge.

    3)Personal Interview-
    The next in the process is personal interview.This is one of the most crucial stage in which even sometimes the deserving candidates are also eliminated.
    So, the students needs to prepare himself through mock interview.Their you have to demonstrate your knowledge level as well as your thoughts and
    ideas of how could you contribute to the development of the country.This interview can be appeared in either English or Hindi according to your own preference,
