How to choose a Civil Service?
One should always opt for the UPSC service preferences in the order of their interest. The candidate should specify the most favorite services at the beginning, followed by the other less preferred ones. The order of UPSC service preferences given plays a significant role when the candidate gets qualified. The candidate will be offered the services only according to the order of preferences given before. If necessary, the candidate can also change the option by selecting any other lower option from the preference list but he or she will not be allowed to select any higher option from the UPSC service preferences.
How can a candidate make up their mind about preference list of the UPSC service?
While choosing the civil service exam preferences, one must move with caution. Because, if the candidate has specified his/her preferences such as IAS, IPS, IFS, IRS(IT) but if he/she couldn't get the allocation in the specified services due to the rank in exam or preferences or medical status, then he may not be considered for any of the services by the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC).
Besides, when it comes to personal choice, specify the preferences according to one's own inclination towards the respective services. A candidate must analyze more about their personality and decide which UPSC service preferences suit them the best. One can also sit and discuss with the family and ask the future plans of the family members. All the UPSC service preferences have equal powers and responsibilities. Depending on the personal interest the candidate should make the choice.
