I have completed my 12th this year and I want to become an IAS officer .What should I do?
For UPSC (IAS), you need to have a graduation degree in any discipline from a recognized university/institution by the Government of India. So, you need to complete your graduation to be eligible for UPSC Civil Services. Along with your graduation, you can start your preparation as well.

It is not possible to become an IAS Officer right after completing 12th standard! In order to become an IAS Officer, you must apply for CSE exam conducted by the UPSC. You must also crack the exam (preliminary, mains and interview) in order to get selected for the training.
The basic eligibility criteria required to appear for this exam is – candidate must possess Graduate Degree from a recognized University/Institute! So technically, 12th passed students can’t appear for this exam right after 12th. After completing 12th, they must complete Graduation first. After completing Graduation program successfully, they may take a shot and CSE and become an IAS Officer subsequently!
