    UPSC carries out the Civil service exam for finding out the right aspirant. The qualification you must have is a graduation with any stream. Age of the aspirant must be within the limit of 21 and 30 years. The civil service exam covers preliminary test, main exam and interview. You must practice well to clear the test. There are optional subjects in the mains that you can take. There are Indian language, English, essay general studies and any optional subjects. It is a tough examination. Therefore, you can go for coaching before attending the test. More details about the civil service exam is available in the UPSC website.

    Re: How much time does it take to prepare for IAS entrance?

    Dear friend , its all depend upon the fact that what subjects you have choosen, have you studied those subjects at graduation, how much seriously you have studied at graduation, how much enthusiastic you are for civil services and so many. If all answers are come out to be positive, then you are going to be fully prepared at a short span of 10-12 months. Generally it takse 1.5- 2 years for the beginners to appear in the exam. Best of luck

    dear friend
    we cant just tell you precisely how much time is required to prepare foe IAS exam , because IAS preparation is a long process , there are some people who started their preparation when they where in schools ,usully what people do is that after graduation or any other course they spent one whole year just for the IAS preparation , and also the duration may depend up on the ability of the person . any way what i want to tell you that , don't wait for an opportunity to start studying ,rather you start your preparation when you are doing any other studies .

    IAS-Indian administrative service. this exam is conducted by the UPSC every year.by the name of civil services.
    >>Fr appearing in this exam you have to be graduate with some age limits.
    >>You should be under 21 to 30 years if you are a general candidate.or
    >>You should be under 21 to 33 years if you are a obc candidate.or
    >>You should be under 21 to 35 years if you are a sc/st candidate.

    This is the toughest exam in India. so you have to work very hard for it.the time is depend upon you but generally 1 year is enough to prepare for this exams.but only in case of that you are a brilliant student.otherwise it will be a very hard exam.If you have the money than you will join the Coaching for it.so you will get the answer at any time of your doubts.
    >>UPSC given you only four attempts in case of general and 7 attempts in case of obc and no limits in case of sc/st students for giving this exam.

    So if you are general student than you will have only limited number of attempts to clear the exam. so prepare hard for it if you really want to clear the exam.
