    Hi Astha, India holds UPSC examination every year. The candidates appearing for IAS exam should be within 21 to 30 years of age. Also the candidate should have a bachelor’s degree in subjects mentioned by UPSC. The candidates can attempt for this exam four times. There will be two exams - the preliminary and the main exam. The candidates qualifying these will be called for personal interview. The syllabus for this exam will be as per the UPSC norms. The two exams conducted will be very tough. The candidates are interviewed crucially at the final interview to filter out the best from a number of candidates.
    And to prepare for such exam

    Hi Astha,
    Frankly speaking there is no specific stream or route which you can take up to appear for IAS Examination as the students of all the streams are allowed to take up IAS Examination. However, as rightly said by BMTY to appear for IAS Examination you need to have graduation. For further details please check the link below:
    Hope this will be of help. Feel free to put up more queries. In case your query is resolved please close this question by choosing it as a “best answer” or pressing the “thumbs up” icon.
