    Hello

    Yes a BCA student can take the history as a subject for the civil services of UPSC.

    There are various subjects that is offered by the UPSC and there is no limitation of the selection subject,any body from any back ground can select any subject ,no such limitations on the subject combination.

    As the fact is that most of the services related to the UPSC is a services which is provided to the civilians of our country and in order to that,one need to know all the aspect of the Indian culture and civilization and that can be done only if you go through the subjects like Indian history,geography etc all the subjects related to the Indian culture.

    Hence most of the subjects that is included in the civil services gives knowledge about the Indian culture,and any every body will have to learn such subjects in order to get the job.Hence any body from any stream can select any subject.
