    Computer science graduates are eligible off course.But the list of subjects has not been updated with computer related subjects.You must know that most of the candidates qualifying in Civil services,does not appear with their graduation subjects.Mainly engineering graduates prefer subjects other than their engineering papers.You will need to prepare several subjects like Geography,History,Public administration etc for the Mains as well as prelims.You can select these subjects for your Mains as well because these subjects are relatively easier for a new candidate.

    Dear this is real that computer science subject is not in the list of optional subjects and we also do have enough knowledge about this because this is the decision of UPSC board and we are not in touch with board that we will give you all information in depth and this answer can only be given by the UPSC board and we may really not help you out in this issue because this is decided by the board and you or we can not add computer science as optional subject in the list of optional subjects so you should follow the rules of the board and prepare well for examination with any other branch of engineering when there are three engineering stream are available

    If you think that you are not eligible to apply for IAS examination because of the unavailability of computer science subject in the list then this is your misunderstanding and you can apply for this exam after completing bachelor's degree in any discipline from a recognized university and final year pursuing candidates are also eligible to apply for this examination and presently you are pursuing 2nd year that means you have to complete 2 years of your degree and when you comes in final year, you should apply for this exam and get qualified in prelims examination

    Your age should be between 21-30 years and relaxation in upper age only for reserved category candidates that is 3 years for OBC and 5 years for SC/STs

    I have attached official notification for this examination please download and get more details

    All the best

    No this is not reality.If you did not found any optional related to CS then it doesn't means that CS graduates are not eligible for it but yes you need to choose the optional from the given list but you are eligible for the exam after you complete your graduation.
