    There is no clarity in your Question.

    Because UPSC is Union Public Service Commission which conducts many exam`s such as Group I , Group II, Group III, Group IV etc........

    The syllabus and subjects for the exams are different .

    So if you clearly mention the exam you want to apply then it will be easy to Give you information .

    Civil service Exam is conducted by UPSC in once time in year .

    Those candidate have completed graduation degree or final year of graduation degree from recognized board are applicable for Civil service Exam exam.


    But your age should be in between 22 to 30 years old.Age relaxation is provide only for SC/ST/OBC category as per govt rule.


    The maximum attempts for SC/ST candidate is Unlimited. for OBC candidate it is 7 times and for general candidate it is 5 times.


    Also you must be in citizen in India.


    You can choose the Optional and Main subject as your strength.I have listed here the optional subject and mains subject for Civil service Exam but there is no option for computer application department.So you can choose some different subject for UPSC exam.


    OPTIONAL SUBJECT FOR CSAT EXAM(UPSC)=>

    Re: Can I use any subjects of MCA as optional papers for UPSC Mains exam?

    UPSC site has the list of optional subjects that you can choose from. There is no paper suiting MCA course directly like computer programming etc. You can however choose science or maths subjects. Physics, mathematics, statistics are some of the options. But you cannot choose both mathematics and statistics. You can choose either of these subjects. You can probably choose Physics along with either of these subjects. You can check out the options before taking a decision.

    Re: Can I use any subjects of MCA as optional papers for UPSC Mains exam?

    Hey there,

    MCA has subjects related to computers and maths. For UPSC civil services there are subjects like maths, statistics etc.. Even though your subjects in MCA may not be streamlined with UPSC, you can opt for closer subjects like maths.

    Choose wisely.

    Cheers
