    Hi there!

    Yes, you're eligible for the exams by UPSC like NDA(National Defence Academy and Naval Academy Exam) and SCRA(Special Central Railway Apprentices Exam).

    But if you're dreaming of IAS exam, then you're sorry because you'd complete graduation for that.

    I wish you all success with that!
