    Msc Mathematics can help you a lot to get in CS. 2 years preparation should be sufficient for you as you are doing graduation.

    Preparation may vary from person to person because of grasping power.

    As you are in delhi, there are lots of classes of IAS present there, you can take advantage of that if possible.

    Coaching is to guide you for exam, it doesnt mean that you have coaching so you can surely get through it. I would tell you to go in steady pace as you are in graduation now. you have enough time.

    Do well all the best.

    According to the experts and the chief mentors of the coaching institutes, it is been clear that a regular and devoted and dedicated preparation of 2 years is needed in order to clear the IAS exam. You need to be very sound in all the topics which you have chosen. Moreover, your knowledge of the current affairs must be very good in order to get selected in this exam because more or less the rankings of the upsc depends on the knowledge of the current affairs only

    It is really great to see you that you are so much interested in IAS .

    It depends upon you that how much time you require for the preparation of IAS exam.

    It depends upon you ability that how fast you learn the things .

    You are a science student then it is obvious that you are a intelligent person so you can learn the difficult things very easily than other students.

    From my point of view 2 years is enough time for you for the IAS preparation.

    You can join coaching classes if you are facing any type of difficulty in your preparation.

    Thank you.

    Best of Luck...

    yes it should be sufficient as you are graduate student and having high grasping power at this point of time.

    I will suggest you to go for coaching as well because coaching guides you as per the need of the UPSC exam. but actual work should be yours only.

    Mathematics is also important subject for preparation of UPSC. you can not avoid it because in general studies no optional subject is present. they can ask you anything.

    Do well.

    It is very good to see that you are so much concerned about your career.
    Carry on with the same spirit in the future as well.

    See,to be honest,it all depends on you.
    2 years is quite some time.
    I will suggest you to start your preparations from now only.
    Form a time table where you allot some time for UPSC exam preparations.
    If you want,you can also take coaching classes for preparations.
    But keep in mind one thing that it is the self study and the amount of hard work that you put after going back home is really what matters.
    Revise all the notes given by the teachers at the coaching centre.
    Keep doing hard work and burn your night lamps!

    For G.K,you should read newspapers,magazines and other books on regular basis.
    Try to be more aware about your environment and slowly you'll see that your G.K will improve!

    dear this is totally depend on you . that what is right for you that mean you stay for two year or not .
    if you want to stay then you do it .
    but i think that is not a way for you . and you have to apply for this in appearing in final year in your graduation
    because if you selected in upsc exam right now than it is good for you that you get benefit in promotion and you go higher .
    because for this age is the effective matter in upsc . you select early than you get benefit as soon as possible .
    hope you understand that .

    friend, please note that# Generally one or two years are quite enough for the preparation of the UPSC Examination.# You have to planned your preparation in a systematic way and implement it efficiently.# You should focus more on NCERT Books in the preparation.# You have to keep updating yourself with latest events of national and international level by go through the newspapers daily.# Success in the examination depends upon how much time and hard work devoted by you.# You must join the coaching institute atleast once as they will enhance your knowledge and clear the doubts & basic concepts.# Always thinks positive. Be optimist. Remove all the negative thoughts from the mind.
