    Re: Details for writing IAS entrance exam?

    Since, you have completed your graduation in Commerce you can definitely apply for the Civil services exam for IAS. This is an exam which is conducted by the Union Public Services Commission for various services. The minimum eligibility criterion for attending the IAS exam is a graduation in any discipline. The candidates should have taken the graduation from a recognized university or college minimum pass marks. First class or higher percentage is not a criteria for writing the exam, but it can come into play when it comes to final interview.

    The candidates should be at least 21 years of age to attend this exam. The upper age limit for attending the IAS exam is around 30 years. There is age relaxation in case of the reserved categories in case of the SC/ST/OBC and certain other criteria’s. The candidates have to attend the written examination as part of the recruitment criteria. Those who get qualified in the written examination will have to attend the personal interview. The final selection of the candidates will be based on the performance of the candidates in the personal interview.

    The candidates belonging to the general category can opt the IAS for about 4 times where as those belonging to the reserved categories can opt the IAS for about seven times. There in no criterion as to the percentage of marks to apply for the IAS exam.

    Hi Friend



    Yes, You can write IAS exam which is conducted by UPSC !! There's nothing like that B.com people should not write!!! Any one if they have done degree from any recognized university can sit for IAS exam!! And also there's no need of maintaining any min.percent in your academics - but you should not have any active backlogs!!

    Now I will give you all the details of IAS. Please have a look on it:

    You can go for IAS(Indian Administrative Service) if you scored good rank in CIVILS which is conducted by UPSC(Union Public Service Commission) every year.

    UPSC has changed the pattern of highly respected IAS exam from 2011 .
    In the new pattern the Preliminary Test (PT) for IAS exam is replaced by Civil Service Aptitude Test (CSAT).


    IAS will be done in 3phases:
    1.Civil Service Aptitude Test(CSAT)
    2.Main Exams
    3.Interview


    Eligibility criteria for IAS::


    You must be a citizen of India.
    Age limits for IAS:
    You must have attained 21 years and not be over 30 years on August 1 of the year of examination.
    The upper age limit is relaxed in specific cases as mentioned below:
    upto a maximum of 5 years if the candidate belongs to SC/ST.
    upto a maximum of 3 years if the candidate belongs to Other Backward Classes(BC's)

    You must complete your Graduation Degree(No restriction in Min.Percent)

    Number of attempts::
    - General candidates: four attempts.
    - Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe candidates: No restriction.
    - Other Backward Classes: seven attempts.

    Application Fee::
    Rs. 100/-
    (No fee for SCs/STs/Physically disabled)

    IAS Exam pattern:



    How to prepare for IAS?


    Being an IAS officer, there is a lot more power and control you have so that you can be part of Emerging India!!! Getting into the IAS is not that easy! There is a very competitive “one year long” exam! To get into the IAS, you probably will have to try more than once before you succeed. And even if you clear the exam, then you have to get a very good score to qualify for the IAS!
    # Make high priority to high scoring subjects like Maths or your Core Subjects.
    # Maintain a good Time management table..
    # Make short notes from the Text books..
    # Once you finish studying 1 chapter then go and solve the prev.year questions related to chapter 1..
    # Finish detailed reading at least one and half month before.
    # Keep one month for revisions and clearing leftover doubts.
    # Keep last 15 days for fast practice and revision. Solve as many papers and question banks as you can get from any source.
    # Finally the following Four Factors will surely help you to crack the good rank to get IAS
    - Consistency in Hardwork
    - Never give up
    - Learn,Test what you have learnt,Analyse and do Revision them
    - Be confident.


    Dates to Remember:

    Notification will be Published on: 04th Feb'2012

    as u are a commerce graduate u can definitely appear for civil services xam as eligibility for civil services is graduate in any discipline.

    as far as percentage is concerned UPSC,exam conducting organisation,sets pass percentage as cut off criteria for appearing in IAS.

    when it comes to preparation u must know about the exam pattern as there are some changes made by UPSC in XAM pattern recenty.
    the New exam pattern for primilary exam is : CSAT

    Civil service aptitude test(CSAT) will consist of two objective question papers carrying equal marks. All students from any educational background will face the same questions in CSAT with Special Emphasis on Testing Aptitude & Decision-Making Ability. Also some eligibility criterions could be changed, for e.g. the age limit and the number of attempts could be lowered and younger students with a good aptitude and enthusiasm could be given preference in the interview. The following Types of questions will be asked in CSAT.

    Current Affairs from National and International Events,
    Logical Reasoning and Decision Making,
    Elementary Mathematics,
    Quantitative Ability,
    Data Interpretation from Graphic and Chart

    Mains:
    u have to write 4 papers of 2 subjects of your choice,2 of each subjects ,each of 200 marks,makes total of 800 marks.
    Candidates who are successful in the main examinations are eligible for an interview which plays a crucial part in the selection.

    good luck for your success

    Re: Details for writing IAS entrance exam?

    Of course you are absolutely eligible to write the IAS exam

    IAS exam consists of Prelims, Mains and Interview

    Prelims is of Objective type

    Mains is of descriptive type

    IAS exam is conducted by the Union Public Service Commission

    You cannot directly appear for the Mains unless until you clear the Prelims exam

    Prelims paper consists of two papers and each paper carries 200 marks for which 2 hours of duration is allocated for the exam

    There is 0.33 of negative mark for every wrong answer

    Mains paper carries 2000 marks

    To clear the IAS exam one must need hard work and dedication towards the preparation

    Coming to the subject you need to concentrate on the topics to get the good score are

    General Knowledge

    Current Affairs

    Try to prepare notes on the topics so that it will be easier for you to refer before going to write the exam

    Best Wishes
