    SHEETHAL as UPSC only seeks approved degree course if yours open university have the approval of its course from UGC, then there is no probelm you are eligible, so first confer the same from your university authorities

    WHILE

    UPSC has given you felixibility to give exam irrespective of graduation stream/percentage/mode of graduation

    after you graduation:-

    you can appear for the examinations

    1.civil services examination (for IAS,IPS)

    whose eligibility criteria are :
    ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA ::
    You must be a citizen ofIndia,

    or, You must be a subject of Nepal or Bhutan,
    or,You must be a Tibetan refugee settled permanently in India before 1962.


    You must be of 21 to 30 years of age. HOWEVER,there is a relaxation in the upper age limit,
    of 3 years for the OBCs
    and
    5 years for the SC/STs.


    You must have completed your Graduation orEquivalent,from a recognized university under any
    stream,or be a final year student in the same

    The number of attempts is 4 for a General category student,
    7 for an OBC candidate,and
    unlimited for a SC/ST candidate,until he fulfills the age criteria

    dear aspirant,

    upsc requires graduated candidates or those candidates who completed engineering from a UGC approved university.

    so if the university from which you completed your graduation is approved by UGC then you are eligible for the upsc exam and you can apply for the upsc exam.

    also your age should lie between 21 to 30 years.good luck
