    Respected Sir,
    i am a resident of Bangalore. i have completed my graduation this year in commerce field. To study IAS course n to become an IAS officer as my ambition is my childhood dream. But to be frank, i could not catch hold of the pace n my studies r still in pending. i am neither regular to class. Its nothing like that i have lost interest in that course. Sir, is it because i am diverting my mind more on something else rather than on my course.
    I still believe that i can do it or do u think that i am lacking encouragement.
    i am confused.
    Please tell me how must i start with my books again.
    Eagerly waiting for your reply, Sir.

      There are no optional subjects related to computer etc.

      You can opt geography as a first optional subject ( Which is very much scientific in nature ).

      Best wishes & Good Luck
