    Yes , You can take commerce and accountancy as your optional subjects for UPSC Mains Examination.

    But You must be sure that you are confident about the subject.

    The safety of the subject depends upon the knowledge you have about the subject.

    If you think that inspite of commerce student , you can do extrememly good in sociology and public administration then go for it.

    but if you are not sure then in that case you should thorough your knowledge in any of the known subjects.

    This is what main concern is ... and never forget , you will not be a master in an overnight.

    So you need to work hard and you will have to be extremely good in whatever you are choosing ,

    So , Work Hard and prepare well..

    Best Of Luck and Succeed ...

    Hi Aspirant,

    Friend as you mentioned that you are commerce graduate, then you would be well aware from Commerce and Accountancy subject, so you should choose this subject as optional subject.

    This subject will be helpful to crack Civil service exam.

    On the place of one other subject you choose economics because it is related from commerce up to some extent.

    So donít think to take risk for Civil Service exam because its exam pattern is very tough and you should choose only those subjects where you are interested and well familiar.

    There are several subjects to choose in UPSC mains exam. I am giving you the list of optional subject here and you can choose the relevant subject as per your educational profile.

    Agriculture
    Animal husbandry & vetinary science
    Anthropology
    Botany
    Chemistry
    Civil engineering
    Commerce and accountancy
    Economics
    Geography
    Indian History
    Law
    Management
    Mathematics
    Mechanical engineering
    Medical science
    Philosophy
    Physics
    Political science & international relations
    Psychology
    Sociology
    Statistics
    Zoology

    Exam pattern for civil exam



    You have need of great dedication and hard work to crack CSE.
