    hi
    I am sorry but you are not eligible of giving the CDS exam being a graduate from a study centre.
    The reason being that for giving the CDS exam you need to be a graduate from a recognized indian university and as the study centres are not the recognized indian univeristies or any kind of part of it, therefore you are not eligible
