UPSC (Union Public Service commission) Conducts IAS Exam (Also called Civil service examination) every year for recruitment of officers for various Indian Civil services. The three Central civil services are Indian Administrative service (IAS), Indian Police service (IPS), and Indian Foreign Service (IFS).

Civil service examination is generally considered as toughest and most Competitive exam so the normally students find it very tough to crack. Lakhs of students compete Every year for about less than 1000 seats for appointment in the prestigious civil services of India (having a success ratio of as low as about .2 %).

Thus general approach for this exam is such that it's out of range of normal students and requires some extraordinary skill to crack this exam. Thus many students fail not because the exam is tough, but because they didn't do the IAS preparation efficiently because of a wrong concept in mind regarding the exam.

Now Take a look at the 2008 IAS exam stats below,

Number of Candidates applied for the exam- 3, 18,843(Three lakh eighteen thousand eight hundred forty three)

Number of Candidates appeared for the exam- 1,67,035(One lakh sixty seven thousand thirty five) (Success ratio gets doubled)

Thus we see that half of the people backed away before the beginning itself.

Also, only 40,000 out of the 1, 67,035 were dedicated and real competitors, remaining ones did not prepare at all due to the wrong concept in their mind or they took the exam just because their parents' pressure, they were n't prepared at all. So half of the battle is won if we just develop the right concept about the competition in this exam and success can be ensured!!! Definitely!!!

Again, out of the remaining 40,000, 10,283 were selected for the mains exam (1 out of every 4 is selected i.e. again a high success ratio for 25%), and 1582 were selected for the final interview, and finally 791, out of those 1582 (with a success ratio of 50%) were selected for the prestigious civil services.

So cheers!! The success ratio At every stage is actually very high. A well planned preparation with a right concept and guidance is All that is needed.

All The Best for your Success!!!!
