    IFS is Indian Forest Services examination conducted by UPSC every year.

    If you are Graduate in subjects like Forestry, Agriculture, Zoology, Botany , Geology, Animal Husbandry , Veterinary Science, Mathematics , Physics , Statistics , Engineering. Then you can apply for this exam.

    If you become a Forest Officer then you will be posted in various forests across the country.

    Age limit is 21 to 30 years if you are general category candidate . There is age relaxation of 5 years for SC/ST, 3 years for OBC , 10 years for physically handicapped.

    You can apply for IFS exam through UPSC website . There is online application available for every exam of UPSC . You have to select exam for which you are applying.

    There will be preliminary exam , mains exam and personal interview .

    Only those who qualify preliminary exam will be fit for Mains exam.

    The selection will be based on marks obtained in Mains and Interview.

    Prelims is only for qualifying for the mains paper and its marks will not be counted in final selection.
