    Re: Can I become an IAS officer having a backlog in Graduation?

    Dear Friend

    First of all I would like to appreciate your decision to become IAS officer .Really it is a good decision but one thing I would like to say that it requires strong determination ,courage along with motivation ,hard labour ,self study and blessings of god also.

    In order to become Indian Administrative Services officer you need to follow the given steps :

    The very first is that you must be eligible for the Civil services examinations conducted by the UPSC every year for the IAS.

    >>You must have done your bachelor's degree from a recognized university in any discipline .You must ensure that you should not have any active pending backlogs in your degree.

    Since you have an active backlog in your bachelor's degree you are not eligible for the exam.It does not matter that it is either optional or compulsory subjects ,what matters is that you must clear all the subjects with at least passing % of marks .

    >>Your age must be between 21-30 years.If you are an obc or sc/st candidates then you can get age relaxation of three years and five years respectively .

    >>For general there are only four attempts ,but obc enjoys seven attempts and sc/st has no limit on no of attempts for the Civil services exam.

    Now after becoming eligible for the exam ,you will have to apply for the Civil services exam at the www.upsconline.nic.in .The notifications generally out in the month of February of every year .

    After that you will have to clear all the stages of exams that are preliminary test,main exam and personal interview.

    If you think that you can do the preparation yourself then you can also join some of the reputed institutes for preparation like :

    >>ETEN IAS academy

    >>Khan study group

    >>Vajiram and Ravi IAS circle

    >>Rau's IAS study circle

    >>Chanakya's IAS academy.

    Hope the information satisfies you .If you have still any other query regarding this you can leave your message here .

    All the best for your career.

    Re: Can I become an IAS officer having a backlog in Graduation?

    Yes. You can.. if you clear your backlogs.. and should graduate from a recognized university.

    It's doesn't matter to UPSC that whether you have backlogs or not... you must be graduate ... for to complete your graduation you must clear all your backlogs.

    So don't take tension about the eligibilty criteria of UPSC.

    Firstly, clear all you backlogs.

    All The Best.

    Re: Can I become an IAS officer having a backlog in Graduation?

    Hello

    After you clear the backlogs,then that is not a issue.A backlog is a backlog whether in a optional subject or in a primary subject.
    you wont be a graduate if you do not clear that paper.But if you clear them then it is not a problem.But having a active backlog is not positive.

    If you have a history of backlogs,then that is acceptable but active backlog is not excepted.

    For more details visit the website of UPSC
    www.upsc.gov.in

    Also a recent notification of Civil Service Examination is uploaded for your reference.

    • No, you Can't become an IAS officer having a backlog in Graduation.
    • For IAS officer, appearing in the civil services examination is necessary.
    • It has three stages which are Preliminary examination, main examination and Interview.
    • Even with having a pending backlog, you can appear in the Preliminary examination only.
    • But however for further stages, you must have to clear the pending backlogs to proceed further.
    • Age limit stated for it is 21 years to 30 years.
    • There is an upper age relaxations for the students from reserved category.
