    Re: Are diploma holders eligible for UPSC exams?

    Dear,
    The essential qualification for the CSAT, CDS, CPF(AC) & IES(Indian Engineering Service) is to pass the Bachelors degree at any recognized university in any discipline. So as a diploma holders, you will not be eligible for the examination. For appearing the above said examination, you have to complete the B.tech examination successfully at any recognized University. You can appear for the IES(Indian Engineering Service), if you will be passed in only three trade, i.e, M for oechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering and Electrical Engineering. Butther above said examination, you have to pass the B.tech degree at any recognized university in any discipline. Best of Luck.

    diploma holder are not eligible to apply for the upsc examinations on diploma basis.
    diploma in any field is not at all an eligibility for any of the upsc examination.
    they can apply for the 12th based examination like NDA or SCRA examination
    if they have completed 12th with science stream form a recognized board
    within the age required for these examinations .

    the age limit to apply for the upsc NDA examination is 16.5 to 19 years while
    the age limit to apply for the upsc SCRA examination 17 to 21 years as per upsc.

    otherwise if they want to apply for the examination like
    civil services examination or the CDS examination or the CPF examination

    Dear Friend,

    In my opinion , your ask is in complete this is because , yes there are some UPSC Exams for which diploma holders are eligible but they are ineligible for a majority of UPSC Exams.

    The UPSC Exams for which you are eligible as per your educational qualifications are :

    * NDA & NA Examination

    * SCRA Examination


    The Educational qualification that you require for the above mentioned exams is that you must have passed 12th from any recognized board or any equivalent examination.

    This is the information i have to the best of my knowledge regarding your query. Hope the information will help you to the extent you want.
