    Hello,

    Yes, you can apply for IAS 2013 even you have 50% in graduation as
    UPSC doesn't prescribe any cut-off percentage for any stage of academics.

    Also, please check if your satisfy other eligibility criteria before applying.

    Thanks,

    You must have known the fact that the IAS is conducted by the UPSC(Union Public Service Commission),now there are many exams related to the services provided to the citizens of our country,and almost all of them are conducted by the UPSC board,and one point you must keep in mind that every exam that is conducted by the UPSC,there the percentage is never a issue,you just only need to pass the degree.

    Actually the UPSC follows a rigorous path of selecting its candidates for the different services to the civilians and it is a challenge for any candidate to get through all the stages of selection.

    Preliminary exam - two papers in objective type pattern and each paper contains 200 marks
