    Basically you need to first complete your graduation. Graduation is any stream is accepted. Make sure it is the area of your interest. After that you need to appear for the UPSC exam. This exam is considered one of the challenging exams in the country. You will need to first clear the prelims. Thereafter you will need to appear for the finals and interview. You can select from the optional subjects based on the stream you select. As a preparation start updating yourself in the general knowledge area. Reading newspapers can help you in this area.

    Re: How to join civil services?

    The Union Public Service Commission of India carries on the Civil Service Examinations every year for the placement of candidates for various designations. The candidates who pass the exam will be appointed as IAS, IPS, IFS and in other posts according to their grade. The eligibility for applying for the civil service test is that the candidate is required to be a graduate from any stream. However, it should be from a recognized University. If you have only passed the l0+2 Examination, firstly, you are required to complete your Bachelors degree. Even being a non medical student, you can opt for the test. It is not necessary that you should have an Engineering degree. The candidate should be aged between 21 30 years to apply for the examination.
