    Re: Can a B.Com graduate appear in IFS exam?

    There is no IFS exam conducted by UPSC.
    One exam is IFoS i.e. Indian Forest Service exam.
    Another is Indian Foreign Service which is a service obtained through clearing Civil Service exam of UPSC and getting the highest ranks.
    The eligibility for Foreign service is nothing different than the civil service.
    One needs to be a Graduate in any discipline from a recognised university. The age limit permitted is 21-30 years for General.Foreign service can be obtained through finest ranks in the Mains result of Civil services.

    If you are asking about Forest Service then the eligibility regarding qualifications is The candidate must hold a Bachelorís degree with at least one of the subjects namely Animal Husbandry & Veterinary Science, Botany, Chemistry, Geology, Mathematics,Physics, Statistics and Zoology or a Bachelorís degree in Agriculture, Forestry or in Engineering.
    The age limit is 21-30 years for General candidates.
    You can check the next year registration tentative dates which are around February/March for both these exams of Civil Service and IFoS at the website of UPSC at www.upsc.gov.in

    <>Foresty Engineering

    <>Botany

    <>Geology

    <>Statistics

    <>Mathematics

    Since you are having a B.Com degree you cannot apply. But you may apply for the other UPSC exams like:- IAS, IPS,etc.

    There are some other eligibility criteria:-

    >>Age should be 21-30 years.
