With its dignity, social standing, opportunity to serve the Nation, multi dimensional exposure, sustenance, no other job can match the Civil Services. Even professionals from IITs and IIMs keep the Civil Services as their primary career option.

The IAS, IPS etc., offer coveted positions and there is only one examination to select candidates to these TOP rung jobs i.e. the Civil Services

A Myth spread across the population of aspirants and their parents is that the Civil Services is only for the elite class from urban areas and candidates with higher IQ and academic achievements, and that it is beyond the competence of village and town youth.

The Reality is otherwise!

The study of Demographics of selected Civil Servants, almost every year, shows an evidence of the success of a good number of candidates from very humble social, academic and economic backgrounds. It is pertinent to know that one can offer Civils Main exam and Interview in any vernacular language or mother tongue as a matter of one's choice.

Any student with In-depth knowledge of subject, perfect analytical ability, Effective articulation and Character of integrity and maturity, even if he/she is not very brilliant in academics, has all the possibility to get selected to the different posts of Civil Services like…..

1) Indian Administrative Service(IAS)
2) Indian Foreign Service(IFS)S
3) Indian Police Service(IPS)
4) Indian Revenue Service(IRS)
5) Indian Customs and Central Excise Service and other Civil Services.

However it definitely requires a strategic and systematic preparation spread over a long period. It is like a fly wheel gaining momentum.

  • Selection Process
  • Structure Of The Civil Services Examination
The process of selection to Civil Services is done by the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC), a constitutional body. Every year, the UPSC comes up with a complete predetermined and meticulous schedule of selection process for Civil Services. The days and dates of their selection schedule are observed without any deviation.

Graduation in any discipline. Age Limit: Candidates should be in between the age limit of 21 and 30 as on 01st of August, 2011. The upper age limit is relaxable for certain other categories. For OBCs upper age limit is 33 years and for SC/ ST, it is 35 years.

Attempts: A maximum of 4 attempts is permitted to every candidate and 7 to those belonging to Other Backward Classes. There is no restriction on the number of attempts in the case of SC/ST candidates. All this provided you are still under the age limit. Also it is wiser to be mentally ready for several attempts as cracking the Civil Services Exams is a tough nut to crack the first time around; and if you do qualify you may want to attempt again to improve your ranking and therefore your service allotment.

Examination process:-
A)Notification: It's a normal practice to announce the selection schedule of civil services exam in the first week of December, through all leading news papers in INDIA. This year the notification will be released on 19th Feb. Complete notification can be obtained from UPSC official website www.upsc.gov.in.

B)C-SAT (Prelims): It's normally held in the months of May/ June every year. It's a customary practice to announce the result of C-SAT (PRELIMS) within two to three months. The general practice is to select candidates in the ratio 1:12(i.e. 12 times the number of posts).

C) Mains Exam: Traditionally, the Mains exams are conducted in the months of October/November. The successful candidates are intimated normally in the month of March through a call letter asking them to attend the final phase i.e. Interview. The ratio of selection for interview phase would be double the number of jobs announced (1:2 ratio).

D) Interview: Interviews are held in the months of April/May. The selected candidates are informed within a week of completion of interviews of all candidates.
Key determinant in Civil Services selection:
The final selection is based on the total of the scores of the candidates in both Mains and Interview. Hence the score in Mains exam which has a weight age of 2000 marks is very critical for selection.
