    to be an ips officer you have to apply for upsc civil services exam for which you need to be a graduate in any stream from a recognized university under ugc . and being an obc aspirant you will be given an age relaxation of 3 years and thus the age limit for you will be 21-33 years .which will make you eligible for this for sure.
    but cracking the exam is quiet a difficult work to do. so if you are will to prepare for this exam then you have to give your 100% to clear this exam.a half baked preparation will not make you to the success.
    for this you will have start preparing for the exam right now in advance .so that at time of the exam just have to go through the syllabus. you can prepare a time table that do justice to every subject .
    analyse your abilities and capabilities and make decision accordingly.you can refer as many books as you can for your preparation.make use of everything the news papers ,magazines ,books of examination along with that you can take the help of previous year examination papers .communicate with your elders that can be source of motivation when you feel down.a good well planed preparation will certainly pay you off in the exam

    You can start your preparation positively.
    Best of luck.
    Thank you.
