Once your name is selected, you are sure to get an opportunity in any one of the services. The prospect of joining the Indian Police Service is more for those who score high marks.

If you are selected to join in Indian Police Service, you are placed in any one of the states or Union territories depending upon the vacancy there. This allotment is based on the state ranking you have obtained. One third of the vacancies in the state are filled up by the candidates of that state itself and the rest of the vacancies, by the candidates from other states.

If you hold the first rank among those passed in IPS services from your state, then you are sure to get an opportunity to work in your state itself. If not, you are likely to be appointed in other states.  So, if you want to work in your own state, you must try to come within the first few rankings. 

Exam preparation

Civil Services exams are competitive exams. It is not a common exam that can be passed by all. A tremendous hard work is required to pass this exam. Mere preparation alone is not enough; a planned, strategic preparation is absolutely essential to take this exam. 

General Knowledge

General knowledge comprises subjects like History, Science, Sports, Indian Constitution, Indian economy and Indian History. Eventhough you have studied about these subjects in school or college, it is good to study these subjects once again.  If you had not shown interest in these topics during your school or college days, now it is imperative to study it hard.  You can make use of the NCERT text books of class 1 to 12.
