    As you have graduation degree with commerce, so you must have 55 % marks in your graduation.
    you have selct your optional subjects so you must have to select from you graduation subjects
    in which you have most command . So, its depend upon you what subjects you like most.

    Re: What are the best optional subjects to a Commerce student in Civils(UPSC)?

    Well dear which course would be better for you depends up on your own capabilities and which subject you can handle better. What if I suggest Maths but you would be unable to cope up with the syllabus. So select only those subject combination in which you can deliver your best.

    However, being commerce student the best combination of subject will be as follows:-

    Commerce/Accountancy and Management
    Management and Public Administration
    English and Hindi

    But these type of Specialization are not allowed.

    So, you have to select for some unmatching subjects combinations.

    Like-

    Economics and Public Administration

    Commerce and Sociology

    Commerce and Indian History

    Economics and Sociology

    Economics and Indian History

    Statistics and Management

    ETC........

    So, check what would be better and suitable for you.
