    Hi Aspirant,

    Being a B. Tech 3rd year student you can not apply for Civil exam.

    In final year you can apply for civil exam.

    UPSC fill the post of IPS through Civil Service exam.

    Eligibility for CSE

    You should be graduated in any stream from recognized university or its equivalent

    Final year candidates are eligibile to apply.

    Age should be between 21 to 30 years.

    Age relaxation

    SC/ST + 5 years

    OBC + 3 years

    PH + 10 years

    You must be Indian.

    Friend there is no particular qualifying marks for IPS cadre.

    Qualify marks or cut off vary every year according to following factor

    Exam toughness

    Number of candidates applying

    Number of posts

    So friend you should try to give your best performance to come in merit list.

    You can apply for UPSC exam through UPSC official website


    Best of Lucků
