    Re: Which optional subjects should I opt for IAS prelims exam?

    First of all good for showing interest in civil service exams.
    for prelims ,two compulsory papers will be common for all ,but choosing optional subject for mains is one of the critical parameter for your career and it will depend on your educational qualification that u didnt mention in the post. Even you have to consider one imp thing that, some combinations are not allowed for mains.

    (a) Political Science & International Relations
    and Public Administration;
    (b) Commerce & Accountancy and Management;
    (c) Anthropology and Sociology;
    (d) Mathematics and Statistics;
    (e) Agriculture and Animal Husbandry &
    Veterinary Science.
    (f) Management and Public Administration;
    (g) Of the Engineering subjects, viz., Civil
    Engineering, Electrical Engineering
    and Mechanical Engineering–not
    more than one subject.
    (h) Animal Husbandry & Veterinary Science
    and Medical Science.
