Recently i hv passed my 10th exam .. can i choose medical stream if not then which is much better for IAS exam?
Yes , after your 10th you can definitely choose medical stream i. e PCB for your 10 +2 and then any course of your chouce for graduation if you want to become an IAS officer.
This is because,
to become an IAS officer you need to clear UPSC civil services examination and to be eligible for UPSC examination there is no compulsion to have done 10+2 in a particular stream , also there's no compulsion to be a graduate in a particular subject, all you need to be eligible is that you should be a graduate in any discipline , so you are free to do 10+2 and graduation in any subject.
UPSC point of view, choosing Arts stream for your 10+2 and graduation can be really helpful for your UPSC examination, this is because in Arts you will be learning subjects like history , polity etc which are a part of the UPSC syllabus so it will help you in your upsc examination. But if you choose PCB for your 10+2 , then you can choose your options open so that after 10+2 even if you want to mbbs ,you can. And after completing mbbs you will have back up so that in the worst you cannot clear UPSC, you can practice as a doctor. So, take your time and decide
