    If you have cleared your failed subject in the supplementary exam,then there will be no problem.Your graduation is final and there will be no questions from your backlog paper once you have cleared it.
    If your aim is Civil services you need to prepare very hard. Do not go for directly coaching classes as you will not understand a single thing without self preparation and you will end up losing your money and most importantly your year.
    You need to first get a good preparation.Follow good magazines like Competition success or Pratiyogita darpan. Read NCERT Books of Geography,History,Civics etc. After you think you have got average knowledge then go for coaching classes.

    Hello

    YES YOU CAN APPLY FOR IAS EXAM.

    The basic ideology regarding IAS exam is or any other exam in the world is that you must have completed your degree.
    You must not have any backlog at the time of applying for any exams.

    But ever if you had any such,there is no issues even with that.As the usual assumption is that

    HAVING A HISTORY OF BACKLOG IS NOT A PROBLEM,BUT PRESENT BACKLOGS ARE NEVER ENTERTAINING.


    Hence if you have cleared your backlog,no problems with it and never will be just relax.

    Dear friend,
    it doesn't matter that in how much subjects you had failed in your graduation or how many times you have failed...all that matters is that at time of applying for Civil Services Examination for getting IAS, you should have completed completed your graduation passing all the subjects of the graduation.

    The educational qualification for Civil Services examination is that you should have completed your graduation in any stream from a UGC recognized university.

    For improving your general knowledge you should regularly read good newspapers,watch news channels and read good books for General Knowledge like GK by lucent.

    Thank you and all the best

    Re: Failed in one subject of degree exams, will I be allowed to take IAS exam or not?

    No, you cannot take IAS examination after failing in one of the subjects in your degree examination.

    Here is the eligibility criteria for UPSC IAS examination:-

    • Graduation from any recognized university
    • No percentage requirement
    • Age between 21 years to 30 years.
    • Upper age relaxable by 3 years for OBC, 5 years for SC/ST and 10 years for PD candidates.

    So, you should write your degree examination again and try to pass it in order to be eligible for the IAS examination.
