    Its great that you are planning well in advance for
    your future.
    Well, to become an IAS officer you should be a
    graduate first. IAS eligibility states that you should
    be a graduate in any field.
    After that you will need to appear for 3 stage
    exam
    1) Preliminary exam
    2) Mains exam
    3) Interview
    After you pass the prelims test you will be called
    for the mains which is held after 2 months or so.
    After clearing mains you will need to appear for
    interview
    All the stages carries certain marks so if you dont
    clear one you are out of the race.
    So since you are in 12th you should prepare well
    in general knowledge section as thats the most
    important part of the exam.

    We appreciate your aim and it also good that you are a hardworking student. In your 11th class this is not necessary that what you have to take. According to your interest you can take any subject. But for applying IAS you should be a graduate person so now you have lot of time to do hard work and get success.

    You have to select the subject group Science, commerce, or humanities on which you are confident. Select your favorite group. Select the group that you feel that you can score well. concentrate on your studies

    For IAS exam there are various optional subjects biology,physics ,commerce,history geography economics and much more.

    It does not matter that what you study in 11th or 12th class but it depends on how you study.

    percentage is not much important for IAS exam

    good luck!!

    As IAS is not stream based , you can choose any subject in+2,
    but, if you will choose arts, then it will be very helpful for you to study in graduation.

    86% is a good percentage.Its not bad.You are doing well.
    But don't worry percentage is not required for IAS.
    The only eligibility for IAS is as follows:
    -Bachelor's degree from a recognized university.
    -Age limit: 21-30yrs.

    So,you need to complete your graduation in order to apply for IAS exam.

    You can take any stream for eligibility, but the percentage matters.
    how much good percentage you secure, it will help you much for selection and status.
    but you must secure minimum 60% in 12th and graduation if you do.
    and you can take any stream in 11th class...

    my friend the minimum eligibility for the IAS officer is that u should be a graduate in any stream....
    and there is no % age criteria for that even..
    all u need is to just pass the graduation course with minimum marks and then apply in the IAS...

    also this makes it better for u!!

    if u want to be just an IAS then u can go for any stream!! arts, science or commerce and just complete your bachelor degree and go for IAS...

    but if u want better jobs prospects also if not IAS then u can go for the science stream as it is the best stream...providing you state of the art jobs and packages...
    all the best....
