    The eligibility for IAS is as follows:
    -Bachelor's degree from a recognized university.
    -Age limit: 21-30yrs.

    Its still time.So,first complete your graduation and then apply for IAS.You need to clear three stages in order to become an IAS i.e Preliminary,Main and Interview.
    You can get the notification of the exam from the UPSC website.

    you can choose any stream in 11th class. But make maths should be of your subject then only it is easy for you in future.
    Be aware of current matter and improve your communication in english. This will help you for your interview. Then in every district(especially in major city)
    there is a hall for IAS preparation. Make use of it.
    All the best....

    It is good to see that you think for higher posts.IAS paper is conducted by UPSC exam.You have to do graduation from any course and after completing your graduation you can apply for ias.There are two papers in ias one is of written test and other is of interview test.Only those candidates are called who will clear written test.Once you cleared interview then your selection will be and your dream of being ias will come true.Good luck!

    I think you have just heard name of IAS , that's only...

    Brief detail:
    To become IAS, you have to apply for civil service exam conducted by UPSC
    Minimum educational requirement is graduation.
    It is a very tough exam less than 1% are selected. Top 120 students are given IAS cadre , then rest 200 IPS & then IRS...IFS...IIS etc.
    How to study:
    Just study whatever interest you most ....!!!
    Yes, because there is special stream or subject requirement for this exam.

    But, to crack CSE exam , you must have strong background in general awareness & political current affairs, I would suggest you to subscribe to a good magazine like India Today.

    Hi friend ,
    Don't worry first off all your will concentrate on you studies and try to get good percentage of marks in 12th and you can apply for under graduation course and get above 60% percentage of marks . You have lot of time so you try to develop extra activity like computer course , type writing ,personality development , soft skill , communication skill these components are much more important for IAS exam . In below i should explain the details of IAS exam .

    UPSC ( union public service commission ) conduct entrance exam for IAS . The eligibility of the course is graduation with 60% percentage of marks in any stream . The age limit should be 21 to 30 . 3 years relaxation for SC/ST Ex -service man and Candidate and 3 years for obc . There are 4 attempt for the general candidate and there s 7 for the obc candidates . No limit for the SC/ST candidate . The candidate should face three level of exam preliminary , main and interview .
    All The Best !

    Re: What should I do in Class 11th if my future goal is to become an IAS Officer?

    As you have opted for commerce with Maths, you would be eligible to apply for IAS entrance examination only after competing your graduation from any discipline. The minimum qualification which is required to appear for IAS entrance examination is to have a graduation degree in any discipline.So, after competing your higher secondary , you can opt for graduation in any discipline according to your choice.

    Now one important thing which should be understood in this regard is that different students opt for different subjects according to their own personal interests as well as it also depends on the fact that in which stream they have completed their graduation, so if you have opted for commerce with maths as your subjects then you can opt for subjects relating to commerce field .

    So, it clearly indicates that a candidate can opt for any any of the optional as well as main subjects according to his own caliber as well as subjects already studied in his or her graduation.
    So, there area number of subjects which can be opted by a candidate even if he belongs from commerce background or any other background for example Arts, Science, etc.
    You should develop a clear understanding of the current affairs taking place in the country in the economic, political or international field. You should have a good knowledge of general awareness, english, etc which are important for IAS exam.

    You can choose IAS as your career in future.
    The eligibility for IAS is Bachelors degree in any discipline
    from a recognised institute.
    Also to appear in IAS you must have attained 21 years
    of age.A student from any stream can appear for
    IAS exams. As you are from commerce , you will
    have the liberty to choose subjects from your field like
    accountancy, economics etc. for the mains exam.
    However to appear in mains you have to first clear
    CSAT i.e; Civil services aptitude test.
