    Yes, you can appear in both exam if you are graduate from recognized university. And one thing according to me if you choose one post on focus only on one exam that is better for you bcoz if you focus both post then you can be confused to take both exam. So, focus only one exam which you desire best for your future.



    Thanks

    Re: Can I appear in both UPSC CDS and CSE exams simultaneously?

    YES, you can appear for both the CDS as well as the Civil Services exams in the same year.
    Anyhow both exams are held on different dates.

    In the CDS exams which is conducted two times in a year, there is:
    Written test
    SSB interview

    UPSC Civil Services exams are held just once each year and have three stages of the exams:
    PRELIMS
    MAINS
    Interviews

    You just need to meet the minimum eligibilty criteria to apply for both the exams.

    To appear in the UPSC civil services exams you need to be a graduate.
    Age should be between 21 and 30 years

    For CDS you need to be a graduate for the IMA and OTA wing
    Age for IMA between 19 to 24 years
    Age for OTA between 19 to 25 years
    Maximum 33 years for the OBC Candidates
    Maximum 35 years for the SC/ST Candidates

    Friend, you can absolutely apply for both the examination. There is no such compulsion of applying for any one examination at a time. Any candidate can apply to any number of UPSC Examination provided that he fulfills the eligibility criteria fixed for that examinations. Generally, any graduation degree is required for UPSC Examination.
