    First of all you will have to clear the preliminary test. Being selected in Prelims you will have to sit in the main examination. There you can select a optional subject of your graduation background.
    As you are a commerce graduate you can choose accountancy or stastics or management according to your choice.

    hi...
    it entirely depends on the candidate that which subject is good for him and which is not because you have the freedom to choose any subject which you want from the eligible list of the subjects,
    and also from this year the pattern of the examination has also changed and there is introduction of the csat exam for the preliminary examination,
    hence the subjects which you will select you will have to write only the main examination for them and have to have an preparation of at least master level in that subjects to do well and at least have an chance of getting an decent score in the India's toughest examination.
    Its important to note that generally the candidates follow an strategy that choose an subjects whose syllabus overlaps with general studies section paper ,by doing so the work load decreases a bit,
    there are many other rules to be eligible for this examination ,i am attaching the brochure of this years notification brochure to give you an detailed idea about the exam.
