    If you want to become IAS Officer then you will have to be eligible for UPSC Civil Service Examination because this exam is mandatory to be qualified by candidate before becoming IAS Officer and required eligibility criteria is mentioned below for this examination

    A bachelor's degree in any discipline from a recognized university or any other equivalent qualification. Final year pursuing candidates are also eligible to apply for this examination

    Age should not be less than 21 years and more than 30 years and relaxation in upper age as per government guidelines that is 5 years for SC/ST and 3 years for OBC category candidates

    So you may see that being graduate is mandatory to be eligible for civil service examination so you must start your journey now to be graduate from a recognized university or institute or college

    You must choose a bachelor's degree course of three years and if possible then you should choose a each degree course that profit you in the preparation of civil service examination because your main target is to become an IAS Officer and you need to concentrate only on this exam so you should choose a degree as BA or B.Com or B.Sc that does not give tension of passing and examination means if you choose BA with some good subjects as Political Science and International Relations and Public Administration or Sociology or History then you will not have problem and I would like to suggest you to prefer BA on the place of any other bachelor's degree because in this course, you may select History and Geography as your subjects of bachelor's degree and may also take Hindi or English as literature subject

    These subjects are asked in prelims and mains examination of civil service and if you will study before the exam then this will not create problem for you while studying for civil service your revision will be profitable for preparation and this will not give you tension to qualify because easy subjects can be passed easily but if you go for any other professional or vocational course then you will have some problems of studying from university and you will have to care more for course so think about the future and choose BA with History and Geography

    I have attached this year's civil service exam notification that provides complete syllabus and examination pattern so you should begin your preparation according to official details

    All the best
