The eligibility criteria for Civil Service Aptitude Test(CSAT) is that you need to complete your under graduation course and your age group must be between 21-30 years.Since,you have completed your MBA you can definitely go through the CSAT examination.

As CSAT is one of the prestigious exam conducted by the UPSC board hence you can get the application forms from the head/central post office of your city.The test is basically held in two stages i.e preliminary test and mains.

The preliminary stage consists of two papers,200 marks and 2 hours for each exam.
The first paper basically consists of History of India,Current events,Indian and World geography,Economic and Social development and general science.
The second paper basically consists of English part i.e Decision making and problem solving,mental ability and basic numeracy.

You can get the notification and other such details in the official website of the UPSC i.e

hi!

To become an IAS you need to appear in civil services exam conducted by UPSC.

The first phase of CSE exam is called CSAT(earlier it was called prelims exam). The notification for CSAT, 2011 has not been issued yet. It is expected to be issued in the month of february.

Academic Eligibility for IAS Exams: A bachelors degree in any discipline obtained from a recognized University.

The examination structure of CSAT comprises of one paper consisting of questions from general studies and the other paper focusing on the aptitude skills of the students. So you must focus on improving your aptitude & general awareness. Read newspaper daily. Also try to solve model aptitude paper.
