    Hi,
    There is no specific Subjects Requirement to join Civil services exam.

    It is good that you want to join Civil services exam. To join civil services exam, you must be passed a graduation degree from a Indian recognized university.

    Your age should be between 21-30 years. There is no Percentage requirement in your graduation degree.

    Appearing in final year candidates is also Eligible.

    As you know civil services is very Tough exam. it consist two exam;-Prelims and Mains exam

    Prelims exam consist Two papers of General studies. Therefore you have to increase Your Gk and Current affairs Knowledge.

    On the other Hand, Mains exam consist Optional subjects, General studies, General English, Qualify Language papers etc...

    You have to choose optional subjects in which you have full Knowledge or field related Subjects.

    After clearing you will be called for Personal Interview.

    There is no requirement for any compulsory subjects to apply civil services exam but you have to control on your GK,English and math.

    All the best...............
