Aspirants who are eager to become an IAS officer after 12th make this wish of theirs so much big that they start taking too much pressure. This is why it rather seems too difficult to be achieved.
IAS Officer after the 12th, the candidate first needs to enroll in an undergraduate course. One must choose the course wisely and for his own benefit, he/she must ensure that it helps cover the UPSC syllabus. In order to apply for the UPSC civil service exam, the minimum educational qualification which is required to fill in the application is graduation in any stream from a recognized university. There are no minimum percentage criteria for the qualifying exam of the same. There is nowhere stated the minimum passing percentage required to appear in the examination.
One does not need to join coaching for the preparation of the UPSC civil service exam. One can prepare well with the right guidance and UPSC exam strategy. The candidate must develop the habit of reading newspapers daily and try solving the previous year’s question papers. The aspirant must have a strong grip over the syllabus as UPSC never goes beyond that.
After complete preparation, to become an IAS officer after the 12th one needs to apply for UPSC civil service examination. The candidates must keep calm and with patience attempt this exam.
The UPSC CSE is conducted in the following three phases:-
1. Preliminary Exam
2. Mains Exam
3. Personality Test/Interview
In an IAS Mains, choosing an Optional subject is the most difficult thing for the aspirants who are preparing for the civil services. Opting for an optional subject is the deciding factor in releasing the final rank. The optional subject compromises two papers, and while making a decision, candidates must ensure their educational background, interest, and knowledge in the optional subject. If an aspirant chooses an optional subject wisely then it makes preparation easy and helps fetch more marks.
Not every person that clears UPSC civil service exam becomes an IAS Officer. Only those with high ranking secure the position of an IAS officer.
