    The exam for IAS and IPS is same and it is known as Civil Services exam.
    Once you qualify the CS Prelims you have to appear again for CS Mains.After the marks of Mains written and interview marks,one is allotted the service of choice i.e IAS,IPS,IFS,IRS etc based on their ranks and preference stated in the Mains exam form.
    The physical tests and medical tests will be different for different services but the exam is one only.
    12th is not compulsory and Only degree in graduation is compulsory.
    One may get degree through 10th-Diploma-Graduation OR 10th-12th-Graduation.
    Both kind of candidates are eligible provided they have a valid Graduation certificate from a recognised University.

    Eligibility for UPSC IAS/IPS Examination 2013

    You should be graduate in any stream from a reputed institute or university and if you are pursuing final year of degree then also you are eligible to apply for this examination

    Your age should not be less than 21 years and more than 30 years and relaxation in upper age only for reserved category candidates that is 3 years for OBC and 5 years for SC/ST category candidates

    If you have not completed class 12th then you should complete your higher secondary first then complete any bachelor's degree course and be eligible for IAS examination

    If you have got any other equivalent qualification on the place of 12th as Diploma or two of three years then your diploma will be considered equivalent to Intermediate

    Examination Pattern for IAS Examination : For your kind information that examination pattern is same for both exams because there is no separate examination conducted for IPS post in open recruitment and candidates for IPS post are selected through IAS examination by securing good marks and preferring for IPS post so you do not need to worry and just appear for IAS exam and if you want to prefer IPS rank then you can while main exam and personality test but physical and medical standards is the toughest section after personality test so you have to be passed in each test

    Preliminary Examination - 2 objective type papers for 400 marks - General Studies and CSAT

    Main examination - Seven conventional type papers for 1800 marks in that paper I is for Essay and English precis for 300 marks then next four papers for General Studies based on different topics and contains 250 marks each and last two papers will be based on the selected optional subject from the list provided in the application form of main examination contains 250 marks each

    Passing in prelims is compulsory to be eligible for main exam and qualifying in each paper of main exam is necessary to get chance for personality test

    Personality test is for 275 marks and final stage of your selection

    All the best

    Here you need to know one thing i.e for both IAS and IPS, you need to give only one exam i.e civil services exam.

    Based on your rank, you will alloted for different cadres after qualifying the prelims, mains and interview.

    And most important thing is you need to possess a valid degree to give these exams, your 12th class is not important here.

    So, if you have a degree from recognized University, you can apply for civil services exam, but you need to satisfy one more criteria i.e age qualification.

    You should have minimum 21 years and maximum 30 years for general category candidates.

    Age relaxation for reserved category candidates is as follows:

    3 years for OBC.

    5 years for SC/ST.

    10 years for PWD.

    Civil services prelims 2013 exam was over and the results were also out, Mains exam is going to be conducted on 1st December 2013.

    Exam Pattern:

    Prelims

    Mains

    Interview

    Number of attempts:

    General category- 4

    OBC - 7

    There is no limit for SC/ST.

    Dear Friend,
    The candidates willing to appear for the IAS exam have to get a bachelor degree certificate from any recognized university in any stream or discipline.

    The 12th level exam is not the educational qualifying limit for appearing for the IAS exam.

    The candidates need to have a graduation degree in any of the following pattern 10+2 +3 or 10+2+4.

    Even if you have done diploma then also you will be eligible after you get a graduation degree from any stream of your own interest.

    For details check http://ww.upsc.gov.in

    This is a silly question well if you have not did class 12th then how can you do the raduation as far as the eligibility is concerned graduation in any discipline is the main requirement to apply for the civil services examination i.e IAS and IPS.
    So class 12th is nothing to do with it only the documents are checked by the verification department and you need to submit all the documents related to the academics so that is just for the enquiry.
    But if you want to apply for the civil services examination then you need too fulfil the eligibility criteria for the same.
    IAS and IPS examination pattern are same because both are conducted through the civil services examination.
    Eligibility criteria you can see-
    Eligibility criteria for the Civil services examination-
    Age should be 21 to 30 years of age.
    Graduation in any discipline from a recognised university can apply for the same.
    Age relaxation for the civil services examination is as follows-
    SC/ST 5 years.
    OBC 3 years.
    Ex servicemen 5 years.
    Disabled defence officer in army during war for commissioned officer 3 years of age relaxation.
    Examination pattern-
    CSAT stands foir the civil services aptitude test which is the first stage of the examination. It consist of 2 papers and both general studies of 400 marks total.
    MAINS examination is if you qualify the examination CSAT then called for the Mains examination.
    There will be 9 papers of 2000 marks .
    By qualifying the same candidates are called for the interview.
    Interview consist of 300 marks.

    Dear friend,
    having passed only class 12th does not make you eligible for appearing in Civil Services Examination for joining IAS or IPS services.

    The minimum education eligibility criteria for appearing in Civil Services Examination is that candidate must have passed graduation in any stream from any UGC recognized university.
    ood ran
    So you are not eligible to appear for Civil Services examination on basis of educational qualifications unless you complete your graduation.

    There is no difference between question paper for IAS and IPS.

    They both are services which you will have to select when you have successfully cleared the prestigious Civil Services Examination with a very good rank.So question paper is same for IAS and IPS.

    Thank you and all the best
