    Psychology
    Electrical Engineering
    Public Administration
    Geography
    Sociology

    Re: Can B.Tech students opt sanskrit or english subjects as optionals for IAS exam?

    Hi Aspirant,

    Sorry friend you can not choose the Sanskrit and English as optional subject.

    UPSC donít include these subjects in the list of mains optional subject.

    There is also a general paper of English in prelims exam. Thatís why UPSC donít include this subject in the optional list.

    Optional subjects
    Agriculture
    Animal husbandry & vetinary science
    Anthropology
    Botany
    Chemistry
    Civil engineering
    Commerce and accountancy
    Economics
    Geography
    Indian History
    Law
    Management
    Mathematics
    Mechanical engineering
    Medical science
    Philosophy
    Physics
    Political science & international relations
    Psychology
    Sociology
    Statistics
    Zoology
    These all are valid subject to choose for UPSC mains exam.

    You can choose any two subjects for mains exam.

    Friend in my suggestion you should choose the subject related to your b. Tech or as per your interest means to say that you are confident in the subject.

    Optional subject play the key roles in the preparation of UPSC exam.

    So take any decision very carefully.



    Best of LuckÖ

    because there is no any restriction for any student with any branch to take a particular subjects,

    here are the list of subjects in which you can take any two subjects as your optional subjects.

    Optional subjects:

    *Medical Science,

    *Philosophy,

    *Physics,

    *Political Science and International Relations,

    *Psychology,

    *Public Administration,

    [FONT=Verdana, sans-serif]but my friend according to my opinion you should not take Sanskrit as your optional [/FONT]

    [FONT=Verdana, sans-serif]subject because it is not a suitable subject for a b.tech stuident because you have not proper knowledge of the subject.

    [/FONT]
    so you should take mathematics and physics as your main subject.



    good luck.!!!!
