    Yes,There is no matter regarding percentage of marks secured in Graduation.

    Only pass mark percentage is necessary to apply for civil services...

    Civil service preparation in majority of cases is the full time exercise and it merits atleast one year through and devoted preparation after graduation.
    Try to work hard to get success fastly....

    One should not be get tension about factoring such ideas while preparing for ultimate Goal of civil services...

    Dear aspirant,

    -Definitely you can prepare for IAS exams. You consider yourself a low grade student. If you are having less marks in Graduation then don't worry you can still pass the IAS exams.

    -All you need is good performance in the IAS prelims, IAS mains and Interview to become a IAS officer.

    -IAS exam don't count your Graduation marks they select you on the basis of the number you scored in the IAS exam.

    -So prepare hard for IAS exam and don't think that you have less marks in Graduation so you will not clear the IAS exam.

    -Make a time table for preparation and follow a strict schedule then only you will clear IAS exams.

    BEST OF LUCk....

    Dear Aspirant

    Yes you can.It doesn't matter whether you are a low grade or ranker in your class.It is all about your determination and hard work to achieve the success.It all depends upon you.Low grade doesn't mean you are weak and you have no potential.In each one of us there is certain potential and only thing we have to identify it.Civil service examination give an equal opportunity to everyone believing that if they have interest to be civil servant and serve the country then they can give the examination

    Civil service examination is not about whether you are an average student or extra talented. Everyone will have to give same efforts if they have to cross the barrier. Civil service examination require continuous study efforts and you have aptitude to serve and know for your country. If you do so you will get natural interest in studying General studies.Besides these reading newspaper and listening to news will gradually increase your interests in current affairs

    For civil service examination you don't need to be extra talented. Just develop a habit of reading newspaper daily. Be updated on current affairs and have a habit of regular and continuous study you have to make a study plan and draw deadlines for completion of your subjects and stick to it. Develop a test of writing on any issues after reading about it from various sources.
