    In order to become an IPS officer the first step is to appear for the UPSC exam. There will be a notification of the exam if the leading newspapers, Gazette of India. As part of the exam the candidates will be first required to undergo the preliminary test. If they qualify for the same then the main test and finally the final interview. For the prelims you need to prepare yourself in the area of general knowledge and the one of the optional subjects mentioned in the list of subjects in the application form. For the general knowledge area you need to be thorough in the current affairs. In the main paper you need to appear for 9 papers which include papers in English, one of the languages in India, two papers on general knowledge, an essay paper. The last four papers will from the optional subjects you choose from. On clearing the mains you will be called for the final interview.

    YOU CHOSE TO BE AN IPS AT PERFECT TIME.
    THE BASIC ELIGIBILITY IS GRADUATION.

    THATS COMPLETELY UPON YOU.
    I WOULD SUGGEST YOU TO SELECT TWO OF YOUR FAV SUBJECTS.
    ONE SHOUD BE YOUR INTEREST AND THE OTHER ONE SHOULD BE THE ONE YOU HAVE ADEQUATE KNOWLEDGE OF.
    READ NEWS PAPERS.
    APPERR FOR MOCK TESTS.
    ASK YOUR COLLEGE FOR HELP.
    EVERY COLLEGE HAS THIS FACILITY.
    THIS WILL INCERASE YOUR CONFIDENCE.
    ALL THE BEST

    Re: How to become an IPS Officer?

    It is nice to know that you want to go for IPS exam .
    points that will help you:
    1. You need a graduation Degree.
    2. your age should not be less than 21 years. upto 28 years of age you will able to appear in IPS exam. For SC/ST candidates the upper age limit is 32 years.
    3. there three rounds of exam.
    a) preliminary exam.
    b) main exam.
    c)Interview.
    all the above steps are elimination steps. every year a good number students can not make it through Interview round. so up to last stage you have to be serious.
    4. your undergraduate degree is very important regarding this exam. subjects that you choose in degree course can help you to sail IPS exam easily.
    5. Every state required civil service employee so do not ignore state based civil service exams.
    6. Questions in Main Exam are descriptive type so better to speed up your writing skills.
    7. To the point answers are always help you to score high.
    8. Never forget to Manage your Time . Time management is the key to crack exams like IPS.
    Best of Luck.

    Re: How to become an IPS Officer?

    CSE(Civil services exam) is one of the greatest examinations of the country.The procedure to become an IPS(Indian Police services) office or to compete
    for CSE(Civil services exam), you have to firstly complete your graduation from a recognized university from whatever discipline you want.
    Actually the minimum qualification that is required in order to appear for this exam is to have a graduation degree.After that you can start preparing
    for the exam.The procedure can be explained as follows:
    1)Preliminary exams-This is an objective exam in which questions are asked from various subjects for example-
    general awareness, English, etc.

    2)Mains exam-
    This is the second stage.This is a subjective exam in which you would be required to choose subjects according to your own personal choice.

    3)Personal interview-
    This is the last stage in the whole process.But it is the most crucial one and many times even deserving candidates are eliminated at this stage.
