hi.. i am a science post graduate student,i want which subjects choose for ias exam?

UPSC is flexible in the list of subjects you can choose. The best way to select the optional subject is 'based on your academic back ground'. Being a science post graduate student, you can select the subjects you studied in your PG for the optional subjects.
