    yes it is compulsory to study history as its part of General studies for prelims exam as UPSC reforms their pattern of exam in this year. so now you dont have chance to select optional subjects for prelims exam. The ground rule is without knowing history you can not make future of India even after becoming IAS officer.

    So History is must for IAS.

    Hi Friend,

    Yes, It is necessary to Learn Indian History If you want to become IAS Officer.

    >> Because without knowing history how can give history related questions.

    >> There are 50 Marks weightage of History Subject in Prelims exam.

    >> So it is compulsory to learn Indian History.

    >> And It is not Tough subject.

    >> You have already learned it through 6-12th standard.

    I hope you understand.

    All the Best

    Friend, you need to study Indian History as it is one of the main subjects in IAS exam. It is a part of general studies. You need not study it deeply, just remember the important events.

    Dear Aspirant

    You will have to do it whether you like it or not.Indian History is the integral part of civil service examination.You will have to know about history of India from middle of 18th century-till India's Independence in detail.You should know it very carefully that in Prelims examiantion questions will be asked in Inidan National Movemet and freedom struggle of India.Even in General Studies Paper 1 question will be from Indian History ,Arts,Literature.You cannot ignore these.It is one of them most important part of the examination.Really if you want to get good scores in civil service examination you must know about history of your country

    See history is not so tough only thing you need that you need to keep revising and if you study with interets it will be of great help.Say I am telling that suppose you have studied about ant temple arhitecture design,when was it built,who built and why was it built and you get an opportunity to visit that place then if you remember the historical significance of that place how much interesting.And you don't need to remember complex formula for it.Only thing which require is timely revision of studied topics

    No...it is not necessary.....you can choose subject of your own choice but in a combination permitted by UPSC.

    Hello Guest,
    What are talking ?
    You want to be a lead role in the administration of your country & you are questioning about the necessity of learning Indian History.
    Ok, let me inform you a statistics of the number of question came from Indian History in 2012 & 2013 year Civil Service Prelims examination
    Among the 100 questions in paper I the no. of question from history was:
    2012 20 questions.

    2013 15 questions.
    History is similarly important for the general studies paper of the mains examination.
    And also you can choose history as a optional paper in Civil Sevice Mains examination.
    I hope now you able to recognize the importance of learning Indian History for IAS examination.
    Wish you best of luck & thank you.

    yes it is necesssary to learn history since in the prelims examination you have to tackle all the subjects, there is no optional subject in the prelims examination.
    don't fear with history its an easy subject just give it 2 hours till six month and you will attain an expertise over it.
    all the best
    happy learning!!!!
