    How to prepare for IAS exams along with the preparation of GATE and IES exams?

    Sir, I'm B.tech (ece) third year student. I wish to be an IAS officer. May I start the preparation now itself? But how? I also want to prepare for GATE and also want to write IES exams. I'm a bit confused how to achieve my goal. Please enlighten my path so that I may achieve success.

    i really want to suggest you something, you should first decide what you really want to be and do in your life. being an IAS officer and IES officer are two totally paths, So 1st choose wisely what you want to be. as both IES and IAS exams are quite tough to crack. you probably should concentrate on one. since you are an engineering student IES is a better option for you. and while preparing for IES you will be also building concepts for GATE exam. so just concentrate on one thing. and as far as IAS is concerned, one has to have good historical knowlledge, grasp of political science and constitution of india, one regional language and compulsary english ..so it will be quite hard..but if you think you can still crack IAS just complete your engineering and join some good coaching institute for IAS. that will be the best idea.... gud luck

    Friend,
    firstly its very important for you to set your goals on what you want to achieve.UPSC exams are not a cakewalk.They require a lot of dedication.
    Anyways sticking to your question I would like to recommend you to pick two of the engineering subjects of yours as the main subjects and read them throughout without any selective study.
    Meanwhile also keep preparing for the current affairs,social and general studies.keep pace with them.
    Also keep practicing the model papers of all the 3 exams.
    But it might be the best to choose your ultimate option and focus on any of them.
    Hope this helps you.

    Hello friend,


    It is good to see you that you are Preparing for IAS

    along with the Preparation of GATE and IES,but my

    personal opinion or you may take it as a suggestion

    that there is no standard yardstick followed it all

    depends on your capacity and capability,irrespective

    of your performance/score in basic/higher degree

    exam.to crack the examination two basic qualities

    are required.

    First you should be filly mentally prepared to

    bear the strain of this one year long exam and

    secondly you should have (or develop) a sound

    expression (written as well as verbal)in the

    medium(language)you want to appear with.Once

    you have obtained these two qualities ,other issue

    regarding the preparation of the examination can be

    handled better and easily.

    You can also prepare yourself with the help of

    written examination pattern by following the

    processes

    The examination pattern is showing below.

    Hi Aspirant

    upsc means Union Public Service Exam

    And for the upsc exam you have to give the civil service exam

    And upsc is conducting the exam every year

    Here is the format:

    Pre exam
    Mains Exam
    Final Interview

    And then on merit basis posts will be given to the selected candidates

    And as my friend you are doing right now your b.tech

    Also preparing for competition exam like gate

    So my friend you can start preparation for the upsc exam

    But first choose your optional subjects and then work on the optional subjects

    Very hard and hard as it will really help you

    And also work on the compulsory subjects like english and gk

    So read daily news paper and try to increase your english word power

    Best of luck

    dear friend,

    dear friend i really recommend you to focus on one exam at one time.
    and if you want to really prepare for all the three exams IAS, GATE and IES.
    first and most important Manage your Time table and maintain your self calm and Cool.
    then choose technical optional subjects for IAS and IES. it would be helpful for you for gate also. and study of these subjects throughout .

    increase your general knowledge, continuous reading news papers and magazines, concentrate on English.
    solving Previous year question papers is most requisite part of preparation.




    Good Luck.........

    Dear friends,
    Since you are preparing for gate then you cant prepare for IAS because both are different fields and no any subject of computer science in upsc. So, you should choose one of them but both are better.

    i really want to suggest
    you something, you should
    first decide what you really
    want to be and do in your
    life. being an IAS officer
    and IES officer are two
    totally paths, So 1st choose
    wisely what you want to
    be. as both IES and IAS
    exams are quite tough to
    crack. you probably should
    concentrate on one. since
    you are an engineering
    student IES is a better
    option for you. and while
    preparing for IES you will
    be also building concepts
    for GATE exam. so just
    concentrate on one thing.
    and as far as IAS is
    concerned, one has to
    have good historical
    knowlledge, grasp of
    political science and
    constitution of india, one
    regional language and
    compulsary english ..so it
    will be quite hard..but if
    you think you can still
    crack IAS just complete
    your engineering and join
    some good coaching
    institute for IAS. that will
    be the best idea.... gud
    luck
