    Dear,
    Sure, a B.Sc. student can prepare for the Civil Service examination. But he can't apply till he successfully completes the B.Sc. in the recognized university. He can't also appear the examination till he is not attained the age of 21 years. But he can prepare himself for the examination from the B.sc. level so that after attaining the above eligibility, he can easily appear the examination. To know more please visit www.upsc.gov.in Thanks....

    Dear Aspirant

    Yes BSC student specially prepare for the examination and infact they are the one who are more interested in appearing in civil service examination.See the minimum educational qualification fixed by the commission is that you need to be graduate from a recognised university in any discipline.So after completing your BSC degree you becom eeligible for the examination.Besides this you can also give the examination in the final year of graduation but you have to produce graduation passed certificate in the final interview process of the examination

    You may even select one of the paper among the optional provided by the UPSC and start your preparation.You may download the syllabus and previous year question paper from UPSC official websites and keep on going completing the syllabus as you complete the subjects in your graduation years.In this way you may have complete command of your subjects as well as you will score good in optional paper also.

    Besides this you may start reading a newspaper.It will help you in building up your vocabulary and strengthen your speaking as well as comprehension skills.It will also keep you updated about current affairs.Reading newspaper regularly also provide fodder for essay
