    Hi Priyanka,
    The most important thing which you need to keep in mind while choosing the subjects for Civil service examination is that you should have a strong hold on the fundamentals of those subjects and the subjects with which you are most comfortable as that will help you in your preparation to a great extent. There are few combinations which are not allowed to be taken which are:
    Political Science & International relations and Public Administration
    Commerce & Accountancy and Management
    Anthropology and Sociology
    Mathematics and Statistics
    Agriculture and Animal Husbandry & Veterinary Science
    Management and Public Administrat

    You have to check out your interest means which sub you liked most and understand concepts easily. There are some sub those are compulsory with prelims as history, these sub will be beneficial with some extra efforts otherwise while choosing a new subject you have to work hard for preparation.
