Firstly IFS exam is conducted by Union Public Service Commission (UPSC). It is the most prestigious exam of india. Since the syllabus and pattern is same for all; IAS/IFS/IRS/IPS — all the posts have the same approach. But, the way you should go for your preparation is what keeps you away from all the other candidates — the dedication matters. 

Newspaper Reading - while reading newspaper give special attention to topics such as International relations, Foreign policies of India and external affairs.

Body Language - acquire as much fluency as you can in English. If you are done with any Foreign language then it's great. Have a good communication skills, try to maintain a proper eye contact.

Writing Skills - An IFS officer needs to make reports. One preparing for IFS should be good at writing.
