    It all depends on your interest that which course you want to do your graduation and you can apply for the following;

    1.BA i.e bachelors in arts.

    2.BTech i.e bachelors in engineering.

    3.Or you can also apply for B.sc ...

    But you don't need to opt for law because it is going to take your 5 years and you are interested in civil services so no need to waste your years because there is age limit for the exam.

    so in my view it is best suited either you go for bsc or ba..

    Mechanical Engineering will be ebst option for you as it is optional subject as well in UPSC.

    UPSC having electrical , mechanical, and civil engineering as an optional subjects so you can go with any one of it.

    But be sure that other subjects not interested at all. one go through the IAS planner. It will solve your all doubts.

    According to me, You should go for B.Sc. Maths... as you can take Maths as your optional subject in Mains Exams.

    B.Sc is for 3 years ... B.tech is for 4 years.. And LLB is for 5 years.... So if to be an IAS is your ultimate goal... I suggest please go for B.Sc.

    Rest is on you. You can clear Civil Services Examination by any taking anything you want as their eligibility criteria is a as follow:

    << You should be graduate in any stream from a recognized university

    So do think about it ...

    Goodluck..!!
