    Dear Aspirant,
    Civil Services exams are comprises of three tests namely 1)CSAT 2)Mains and 3)Interview. We'll see about the first test which is the CSAT, it is an aptitude test that is conducted as a screening test for the selection of candidates for the next exam the Mains. The CSAT is conducted usually in the month of may/June and the Mains are conducted in October/November. The CSAT is a preliminary test and it consists of 2 papers of 200 marks each. The First paper is about general awareness, which tests your understanding of the current events which are of national and international importance, it also test your knowledge about the political, economical scenario of India. It also tests your knowledge about Indian Geography, its importance, in addition to this you would also have general sciences.
    The Second paper tests your reasoning, analytical, interpersonal communication, problem solving and decision making skills, you also have test on English knowledge, also tests on General mental arithmetic , data interpretation and basic numeracy. The English and Mathematics part would be of Class 10 standard, so my advice to you would be to go through the Science and Mathematics text book of class 9 and 10 just to brush up your knowledge.
    The CSAT is an elimination exam, of all the applicants ,every year 10,000-13,000 candidates are selected for the Mains exam, this selection is based on the score in the CSAT. Cut-off marks are announced for the selection and this cut off depends on the difficulty level and vacancies available each year.
    On qualifying for the mains, the exams are conducted in the month of October/November over a span of 20 days with each candidate having to write 9 papers in total.
    The 9 papers are 1) Indian Languages, 2)English, 3)Essay, 4 & 5)General Studies, 6,7,8 & 9 )Two optional subjects two papers in each.
    Of the above papers Paper 1 Indian languages and Paper 2 English are qualifying papers, which means your other papers would be valuated only if you pass the Papers 1 & 2.
    For Paper 1 you have a choice between 18 different languages namely Assamese, Bengali, Bodo, Dogri, Gujarathi, Hindi, Kannada,Kashmiri,Konkani,Maithili,Malayalam,Manipu ri,Nepali,Oriya,Punjabi,Sanskrit, Santali, Sindhi,Tamil,Telugu,Urdu.
    The duration of exams for Paper 1 and 2 is 3 hours and the exams are conducted for 300 marks.
    The 3rd paper essay is that the candidates are required to write on specific given topics, the duration of the exam in 3 hours and the paper is for 200 marks.
    The 4th and 5th paper general studies consists of two papers of 300 marks each, the 4th paper consists of questions about History of modern India and culture, Geography of India, Constitution of India and current national issues and socially important topics. The 5th paper consists of India and its relations with the world, India's foreign policies, India's economic relations with the world, India's development in the field of IT,Space and science and technology, and statistical graphs and analysis.
    The papers 6,7,8 and 9 are papers of the two optional subjects that you opt for. Two papers for each subject.
    The subjects available are Agriculture, Animal Husbandry & Veterinary Science, Botany, Chemistry, Civil Engineering, Commerce, Economics, Electrical Engineering, Geography,Geology, Indian History, Law, Mathematics, Mechanical engineering, Medical Science, Philosophy, Physics, Political Science, Psychology, Public Administration, Sociology, Statistics, Zoology, Anthropology. In addition to this there are Literature main subjects that you can opt for, they are Arabic, Assamese, Bengali, Chinese, English, French, German, Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Kashmiri, Konkani, Malayalam, Manipuri, Marathi, Nepali, Oriya, Pali, Persian, Punjabi, Russian, Sanskrit, Sindhi, Tamil, Telugu and Urdu.
    In addition to this you have Management subject too.
    But there is a catch , there are certain subject combinations that are not allowed by the UPSC. They are
    Political Science & International Relations and public administration
    Commerce and Management
    Anthropology and Sociology
    Maths and Statistics
    Agriculture and Animal Husbandry and Veterinary sciences
    Management and Public Administration
    Animal Husbandry and veterinary Sciences and Medical sciences
    Any two branches of engineering
    Combination of two literatures.
    After the Mains you would be having an Interview in whichever medium you choose and it accounts for 300 marks
    So totalling up
    Paper 1,2,4,5,6,7,8,9 each of 300 marks
    Interview of 300 marks
    and esaay paper for 200 Marks
    Your marks would be calculated for 2300 Marks.
    Depending on the marks you score your ranking would be done.
    All the subjects mentioned above would be of the level of an honors degree which is slightly higher in standards when compared to a bachelor's degree but lesser when compared to master's.
    As you have mentioned that you are interested in Foreign Services, i would recommend you to be proficient in 1 or 2 foreign languages so that you may have an edge to be selected.

    you should choose your career option according to your interest and your performance. M.Tech and civil service both are good.

    if you want to do M.Tech then you must be very much strong in technical subject. after M.Tech job opportunity and scope is very much high. you may join as lecturer in any good institution after completion of your M.Tech. you may also join in industry as an engineer.

    civil service is totally different from engineering. the job after civil service is very much honorable and surely job satisfaction is very much high. but the competition in civil service examination is very much tough. till you may try for the civil service. obviously this is a very good option if you can clear the examination.

    you may also join in job in any company. your college is not so much reputed it will not create burden to get job. if you have the capability to suit for the job position and if you can show that then easily you will get good job. i think you should try for the job also. you may also try for some government job. for government job you have to appear in their written examination first.

    if you are technically not strong enough then you may also go for MBA study. but MBA is mainly deals with management job although your technical degree will give you more opportunity after MBA.

    you should now decide your career yourself. i think it's better to try for everything. appear in GATE examination to take admission in M.Tech through GATE score. appear in job interview and also appear in civil service examination. whichever you will clear go for that.

    best of luck.
