    Hello,
    Of-Course as a IT student you can choose Sociology Subject. There is no any restriction that you have to choose only Science subject.

    You are fully free to choose any stream Subject.

    Don't Think anything you are choosing good subject. If you have good writing skills then you can crack the IAS Exam.

    Wish you all the best,
