    Is it possible for a candidate to appear IFS and then switch over for IAS exams?

    Is it possible for a candidate to appear IFS and then switch over for IAS exams? Say for example a candidate sits for IFS and in the next attempt he decides to sit for IAS.

    Also is it a possibility that a candidate can sit in both the exams (IFS and IAS) simultaneously? If yes then how would be the number of attempts be set, meaning to say if a candidate sits for the first attempt in the IAS, will this attempt be counted for any other exams too, IFS in this case?

    DEAR CANDIDATE,
    -IT IS SURELY POSSIBLE FOR AN APPLICANT TO APPEAR FOR THE INDIAN FOREST SERVICE EXAMS & THE CIVIL SERVICE EXAMS (CONDUCTED FOR POSTS SUCH AS THE IAS,IPS,ETC) IN THE SAME YEAR SIMULTANEOUSLY.HE CAN DO SWITCH OVER TO THE OTHER EXAM AFTER APPEARING THE FIRST ONE.
    -BUT IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO BE MADE SURE THAT THE CANDIDATE IS ELIGIBLE TO APPEAR FOR BOTH THE EXAMS IN THAT PARTICULAR YEAR.,simultaneously.
    -AS BOTH THE EXAMS ARE VERY DIFFERENT FROM EACH OTHER,AND CONDUCTED ON SEPARATE DATES,THE NUMBER OF ATTEMPTS ARE COUNT SEPARATELY FOR BOTH THESE EXAMINATIONS.

    GOOD LUCK.

    YES, IT is possible for a candidate to switch for either exam in same year.

    As both exams are different from each other so there is no restriction of any kind on any of them by UPSC TO BAR THE CANDIDATE TO SIT.

    THEY SEPARATELY CONDUCTED ON DIFFERENT DATES,SO YOU CAN SIT FOR THE BOTH IN SAME YEAR IF YOU MEET ALL THE ELIGIBLITY TO SIT IN EITHER EXAM.


    ATTEMPT'S WILL BE COUNTED SEPARATELY.


    SO GO HEAD.

    ATTEMPT FREELY

    Hello friends,
    yes it is possible to appear both in IFS and IAS exams and you can switch over also but the no. of attempt will be separately counted for both the examination because for both you have to take the exam conducted by UPSC.

    yes friend can appear in IFS exam and after that can switch for the IAS exam. Even you can appear in both the exam simultaneously. So there is no such kind of restriction in IFS or Civil Service exam. Civil service exam and IFS exam is conducted once in a year at national level. To crack these exam you need of very hard work and concentration.
