    The distant mode degree are very much valid and are also applicable for any government and the private sectors.
    The importance of the distant degree is equal to the regular mode.

    Dear you have not mentioned that for which UPSC exam you are preparing or asking about means you must have mentioned the name of that exam for which you wants to apply but dear there is no problem at all because the Free University or Berlin is recognized university and you can easily apply for the UPSC exams and you can apply for various exams - Indian Administrative Services, Indian Forest Services, Indian Police Services, Combined Defense Services, Central Armed Police Force - Assistant Commandant etc. exams but dear your age should not be more than 30 years and less than 21 years for IAS/IPS/IFoS exam and relaxation in upper age would be provided only to reserved category candidates as per government guidelines which is 5 years for SC/ST, 3 years for OBC, 10 years for PWD and 5 years for Ex-Servicemen category candidates

    Dear if you are thinking to prepare for UPSC exams then it is best but if you really wants to get qualified then you need a hard + smart preparation for this exam by following the new syllabus and pattern of the exam and you would have to give at least 15 hours everyday for your study then you would be eligible to get qualified in the exam so that dear first think about any one particular UPSC exam for which you are eligible then start preparation

    All the best
