    It all depends upon your interest. If you want to have career in Civil Services, then its better to prepare for IAS. In contrast to this, if you want to see yourself in the position of manager to lead others, then better to opt for MBA course.

    For IAS, you need to crack civil services examination being conducted by UPSC (Union Public Service Commission) every year.

    The complete selection procedure for this is by
    -CSAT (Civil Services Aptitude Test)
    -Civil Services Main Examination

    Here is the required eligibility criteria to be eligible for civil services exam.

    Academic Qualification :
    -One should have completed Graduation with any of the stream from a recognized university.
    -Candidates who are pursuing final year of Graduation course can also apply for this exam.

    Age criteria :
    -One should be in the age group of 21-30 years to be eligible for this exam.
    -Relaxation is there in upper age limit upto 3 years for the candidates of OBC category.
    -Relaxation is there in upper age limit upto 5 years for the candidates of SC/ST category.

    where as to join MBA course, a candidate should have to secure a minimum of 50% of marks in Graduation course with any of the stream.
    Relaxation is there in percentage of marks upto 5% for the candidates of SC/ST category.

    There is no specific age criteria required for the candidate to join this course. One can join this course at any age.

    Yes. Its a good choice of preparing for CAT Exam to join MBA course as there is a chance for you to be placed in IIMs for MBA course by cracking CAT Exam.

    Hai Friend

    Its all depend on your interest.
    If you are interested in knowing general knowledge, current affairs etc rather than solving mathematical equations, you can work hard on reading newspaper and try for IAS

    and if you are interested more on solving equations compared to GK you can start learning for CAT/MAT

    Try to choose the field according to your interest.


    Thanks and Regards
