Common Prelims but Separate Mains for Civil Services Exam (CSE) and Indian Forest Service Exam (IFS)
The first stage is common for both Civil Services and Indian Forest Service – Civil Services Preliminary Exam (CSP).
The toppers of the Civil Services Preliminary Exam are invited to appear for the Civil Services Main Exam and Indian Forest Services Main Exam, based on their preference. If the candidate clear cut-off score for both, he/she can appear in the Main exams of CSE and IFS.
Thus it can be seen that preparing for Civil Services gives an additional opportunity to get selected in Indian Forest Service (another prestigious All-India Service like IAS and IPS) as well.
