    Hello Friend,

    Yes, the entrance exam is same for all 3 mentioned civil services. You have to appear for Civil Services Exam to get into these 3 services. It is final ranking and preference of candidates that decide which service s/he will get into.

    Thanks,

    Re: Is the entrance exam same for IAS, IPS & IFS?

    Dear as you have mentioned that IAS and IPS has different exams conducted by UPSC board but there is no different exam conducted by UPSC board for IFS - Indian Foreign Service Exam

    UPSC board conducts Civil Service Exam and IAS exam is under Civil Service exam and the distribution for the posts after being selected in IAS exams would be done according to the UPSC board rules in which top 50 candidates those who have qualified in IAS exam and cracked interview process successfully and has got the rank under top 50 would be declared for the post of IFS - Indian Foreign Service and other who have less marks get other posts as - Collector, Indian Revenue Officer and there are about 21 posts under the IAS services which are distributed for all IAS qualifiers according to the marks and rank

    IPS stands for Indian Police Service and UPSC board conduct a separate exam for IPS post also but the eligibility criteria is same for both IPS and IAS but for IPS exam the UPSC board required a fixed and decided physical standards only for IPS post not for IAS so that there is a difference between both of these posts which you should remember in future.

    If you have a bachelor's degree in any discipline from a recognized university and your age is between 21-30 years then you may apply for both IAS and IPS exam and relaxation in age as per government guidelines which is 5 years for SC/ST and 3 years for OBC category candidates.

    All the best

    Re: Is the entrance exam same for IAS, IPS & IFS?

    If by IFS you mean Indian Foreign Service,then the exam for all the above mentioned 3 services are same.It is known as Civil services exam and very often people consider it to be only IAS exam.IAS is only a part of Civil services.You get your service based on your rank and preference while filling the form of Mains.
    If you meant Indian Forest services by IFS,then it is a separate exam and IAS IPS comes under Civil service exam.Forest service exam is conducted separately by UPSC every year and it is confined to only Forest departments and no other service
