    Re: Best optional subjects for Computer Science Engineering graduates in Civil Service exam.

    If you want to appear in IAS/IPS exam then I have to suggest you to take Arts Subjects like History, Political Science, Sociology, Psychology, Philosophy etc. If you have good writing skills then you can absolutely Crack the Exam.

    But if you want to appear in IES exam i.e. engineering services exam then there are four categories in this exam in which you have to take those subjects which are necessary for this exam. four categories for this exam.

    1. Civil Engineering

    2. Mechanical Engineering

    3. Electrical Engineering

    4. Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering

    So you have to think in which exam you want to appear.

    Best option for Optional Subject in the civil services exam is definitely to be decided by your own liking and aptitude.
    However the safest option will be subjects in Humanities like Public administration , Political science , History etc.

    Dear pal,
    • Optional papers are not provided in the aptitude exam while you can apply only in the main exam which includes 9 papers of which four are optional one. You can choose anything as per the necessity and interest.
    • Various optional papers are available are Botany , physics, chemistry, zoology, mathematics, statistics, animal husbandry, Veterinary science, economics, commerce, and engineering papers which includes civil, mechanical, electrical, electronics and communication etc
    • So you can wish to choose any paper as optional as you do not required deep knowledge in the subject. Aspirant knowledge in the higher secondary level is sufficient to clear the paper.
    • So you can choose any paper and appear in it.
