    NO. Computer Science is not among the subjects allowed for Civil services.Your choice of subject is entirely independent of your stream of graduation.You can be a graduate in any other stream or subject and you can select any subject of other stream or specialization.There is no restriction on such matters.But the choice of subject should be from the provided list only.There is a list of 25 subjects to be opted for Civil Service Mains.You need to select among those subjects only.Following are the subjects for CS Mains: (i) Agriculture (ii) Animal Husbandry and Veterinary Science (iii) Anthropology (iv) Botany (v) Chemistry (vi) Civil Engineering (vii) Commerce and Accountancy (viii) Economics (ix) Electrical Engineering (x) Geography (xi) Geology (xii) History (xiii) Law (xiv) Management (xv) Mathematics (xvi) Mechanical Engineering (xvii) Medical Science (xviii) Philosophy (xix) Physics (xx) Political Science and International Relations (xxi) Psychology (xxii) Public Administration (xxiii) Sociology (xxiv) Statistics (xxv) Zoology

    Dear Aspirant

    You cannot take computer science as one of your optional.It is not in the list.UPSC doesn't set any specific paper for computer Science nor they ask questions related to them in any of their paper.However you may take other subject like Mathematics,Physics,Electrical Engineering,as these subjects are from science background.

    Further keep in mind that even in general knowledge paper questions will be related to technology not of specific computer science.See Computer Science gradutes have more scope in software industry.There are numerous companies which are hiring computer gradutes every year.Their knowledge is of little importance according to the services appointed after qualifying civil service examiation.So if you are interested you may take other subjects like history or geography depending upon your interest in order to qualify for civil service examination.

    So it all depend upon you if you want to qualify civil service exam you have to choose different paper for civil services examination as Computer Science is not provided as one of the optional.

    Re: Can one take Computer Science as optional subject for IAS exam?

    There will be two papers conducted in main examination for which you will have to choose anyone optional subject from the List of optional subjects available in notification or application form of main examination and first you should read all the necessary subjects then decide your optional subject for main exam because both papers contains 500 marks and if you cover it well then you can get ahead and more marks than others

    Agriculture
    Animal Husbandry and Veterinary Science
    Anthropology
    Botany
    Chemistry
    Civil Engineering
    Commerce and Accountancy
    Economics
    Electrical Engineering
    Geography
    Geology
    History
    Law
    Management
    Mathematics
    Mechanical Engineering
    Medical Science
    Philosophy
    Physics
    Political Science and International Relations
    Psychology
    Public Administration
    Sociology
    Statistics
    Zoology

    Now you can see that there is no subject which is related to the computer science stream because computer science subject is not available in this list so we are really sorry to inform you that you have not chance to choose computer science as optional subject for main examination and we are also apologize that we do not have any exact information about this subject that why UPSC board did not include it in the list of optional subjects of main examination so you should choose another subject and start studying

    Most of the students of various streams - Engineering and Science choose optional subjects of arts stream because coaching institutes are easily available for these subjects and preparation does not gives any worry to the aspirant while preparing for this examination so you should also choose any other subject - History/ Geography/ Political Science and International Relations/ Public Administration/ Sociology etc. and get prepared well for examination

    All the best

    hi
    there are 22 subjects which are present in the list for the main papers of the upsc examination.
    But computer science is not amongst those subjects therefore I am sorry to say that you being a graduate from computer science is not eligible for giving the upsc civil services examination.
    Now if you want to appear in the exam then you have to take some other subject from the list provided by the upsc and prepare accordingly for that
    Gud luck
