    Yes ... a degree course in correspondence mode is no problem to UPSC.

    You are 100% eligible... Just relax and be happy about it.

    As eligibility criteria just demands that you must be graduate from a recognized university... it doesn't matter whether you get your degree via correspondance course or not.

    Now you just go for it.

    All The Best.
