    Re: Can I choose Commerce subjects for preparation of IAS exam?

    Sure there is no problem in you choosing Commerce stream during graduation. You can choose any graduation stream as the eligibility criteria for this exam requires the candidate to be a graduate. There is no restrictions on the stream as long as you pursue the course from a recognised institute. For the exam you can select the commerce related subjects as the optional subject. You can appear for this exam after you complete 21years of age. In case you are 21 years at the time of the final year then you appear for the exam that year too. You need wait to complete your graduation to appear for the exam. There is however a condition that you should have cleared your graduation at the time of the interview. You should start preparing immediately especially in general studies areas. You can either join a training institute or purchase related books from the market.

    It is good to see your interest towards IAS exam. Graduates from any field of study can apply and appear in the IAS exam. There is selection for students to choose commerce subject intended for the IAS theory test. It you are good at commerce subject then it will definitely help you in the preliminary and the main examination. The syllabus of Commerce subject will be roughly similar to that of B.com degree syllabus. It will include accounting, finance, taxation, auditing, cost accounting etc. In addition to this candidates have to prepare in the management subjects also like business finance, organizational theories, industry relations, business law etc. In the IAS exam you should only choose a subject which is of your utmost interest and knowledge. This will give you an added advantage in the exam. Please visit the official website for more information.

    Re: Can I choose Commerce subjects for preparation of IAS exam?

    yes definitely...........any bachelor degree holder from any discipline can become an IAS Officer after getting through the Civil Services examination conducted by the Union Public Service Commission.
    but along with your academics i would recommend you to involve certain curricular habits in your routine so as to comfortably get through UPSC.
    For History, Economy, Polity, etc, you should read Class 11 and 12 books published by the NCERT.
    try to pick as many facts as you can from the Competition Success Review, which is considered as a bible for UPSC
    for General Studies, you should try to read up as many business and political magazines, newspapers etc. that you can.

    you also need to complete your bachelors with good grades and thorough concentration on your field of study as you have to choose a subject which you will be tested on during your UPSC exam, and if you are confident enough with your specialization, you wont need to prepare for it later.

    Yes you can choose commerce subjects in optional subjects in IAS exams.
    Since you are from Commerce background , you can choose among :- Commerce and accountancy, Economics, Management,
    Law, Stastics, since these are the subjects that you have studied in graduation in commerce.
    Remember you can only select the optional subjects by your choice.
    Other papers are One Indian language, English, Essay, General studied and two optional subjects that you select.

    Yes of course my friend.For IAS there is no condition of stream you can choose any stream in according to become IAS or IPS.
    But IAS require minimum qualification of graduation.So you need to be first graduate and then you are eligible for applying in IAS examination.
    You can go for B.com and after that completion of your B.com you are eligible for applying in IAS examination.

    Re: Can I choose Commerce subjects for preparation of IAS exam?

    Hi, If you are interested in Commerce then you should go with that, but taking Arts Subjects(Economics, History, General English, Political Science) will be better for you. You should have a great knowledge about Historical Events, Current Affairs. Just start reading the books of Indian Constitution, History and General Knowledge.
    Best of luck for your future.
