    All the above mentioned services are equally important and equally paid.It depends on your choice and your desire.If you think you are hardworking and intelligent enough then you might end up with all the 3 services exams and then you need to select which to choose or which to leave.It totally depends on you.Appearing in Civil services exam you will get chance to enter many other services also alongwith IAS or IPS.IFoS is a separate service whose mains and interview are conducted separately.
    The eligibility criteria for Civil services is graduation from any stream and for Forest service you need to be a graduate in any stream with any of the subjects as Animal Husbandry & Veterinary Science, Botany, Chemistry, Geology, Mathematics,Physics, Statistics and Zoology or a Bachelor’s degree in Agriculture, Forestry or in Engineering.

    Dear Aspirant

    Yes you are eligible Anyone who has passed graduation from any recognized university from any discipline are eligible for appearing in civil service examination which is conducted by UPSC.

    Other Eligibility criteria are:
    Age Limit :Minimum age limit is 21 years however upper agelimit is 30 years which has been relaxed by 3 years for OBC and 5 years forSC/ST

    It depends upon you whether you are interested to work in police services or as a forest officer.Generally IPS is considered more prestigious jobs after IAS and higher ranker get these services if they have interest in these fields.

    All the best
