Hi
Only those candidate are eligible who are passed graduation from any recognized university.
As you had mentioned that you got 45% in graduation then you are eligible for IAS exam.
Prepare very hard for this exam.
If you need more information on UPSC then visit their official site.

Good luck

Hello friend,

There is no standard set for the persentage of marks to write the exam for IAS. You just need to be a graduate from a recognised university.

For IAS, you will have to write Civil Service Exam conducted by UPSC.
You should have attained the age of 21 years and must not be over 30 years to be eligible for it. There is a relaxation of age limit of upto 5 years for SC/ST and upto 3 years for OBC.

There are three stages of the exam
1.Preliminary exam
2.Main exam
3.Interview


You will need to clear the preliminary exam to qualify for the main exam and after clearing the main exam, you will be called for an interview.

For further information, visit the official website of UPSC.

Yes, you can certainly sit for the IAS exams. Academic Eligibility for appearing in the IAS Exams is a University Degree... neither your 12th marks nor your graduation percentage will be considered. What matters is that your degree should come from a Central/State Governmemnt recognized University or a
Deemed University.

Hi,

The minimum Qualification to write the CSE UPSC Examination is that, You should have passed and should possess a valid Degree from any Recognised University.

There is no regulation that you should pass with any specific percentage to write the CSE Examination. Literal qualification is you should have passed.

So you dont have to worry about your low marks in the graduation, If have passed in all the subjects, Then you are Cent persent eligible for the Examination.

So drop down the worries and get prepared for the Examination.

All the Best.

yes dear you a re very eligible for this exam.
first of all your school and college must be recognized ones else your graduation degree would have no value..
but certainly with so less marks in graduation could be seen clearly in interview...
so it can be a bit difficult for you to achieve it....

hi friend,

Actually IAS exam does not want any good percetage , it requires only a degree from a recognised university which you are already having. So prepare better from now.
Only case that can be happened with you is that you will be asked by interviewer by your low percentage , so prepare this question also before interview. But an interview requires two cleared stages in IAS(pre and main). Rest is ok.
