    My Dear Aspirant

    Yes statics is no doubt a good subject to choose as an

    Optional subject but it will depend on you and your interest

    If you like statics subject and you are strong in the subject

    Then no doubt go for it as it is a nice subject

    And remember one thing that you can choose both subjects

    Together maths and statics

    And as far from the % required for the upsc exam

    The answer is no specific % required

    Just need to be pass in graduation from a recognized indian university

    And age should be between 21-30

    Best of luck

    according to 61st annual report of UPSC, out of the total 13,000 candidates who appeared for mains in the year 2010, 18 students have chosen statistics as an optional(13 of them wrote in ENglish). If you have prior expertise on the subject, you can very well choose, this subject will help you i other exams also such as Indian Engineering service exam, combined higher secondary level exam by SSC etc
    for more details on the statistics of various mains subject, kindly visit upsc.gov.in website where annual report of UPSc is uploaded.
