    3) Indian Engineering service exam
    4) defense service exam
    5) Medical service exam

    7) Indian Economic service/ Indian Statistical service exam
    for all these exams minimum qualification is a bachelor's degree. In certain exams like forest service, geologist exam etc , bachelor's degree in certain related subjects is the minimum educational criterion.
    But you can apply for the following exams with Higher secondary qualification
    1) special class railway apprentice exam
    for railway apprenticeship (training cum Mechanical ENgg study)
    2) National defense academy exam
    for entry into army, navy or airforce as cadets
    but i dont know if you satisfy the age limits for these exams.

    Dear Friend,

    Sorry to say but you are not eligible for the UPSC Civil Services Examination.

    This is because the minimum educational qualification required for UPSC Civil Services Exam is you must have a Bachelor`s Degree from any recognized college/university.

    And as you have not completed your B.Tech so first of all you should complete your graduation or you should try to make your future in another direction.

    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.

    Dear Friend,

    To apply for UPSC Examination you should have your Degree of B.Tech or equivalent to apply for it.
    Without your degree you cannot apply for it.
    Minimum education qualification required to apply for UPSC Examination is Graduation or equivalent in any stream from Recognized University.
    So you cannot apply without your Degree/Certificate.
    Drop out is completely your choice but to apply for UPSC you have to follow certain rules and regulations.
    UPSC examination is Highly prestigious examination conducted for High Level of Government Department who are backbone of this nation.
    So you can imagine the level of expertize it would need and without your proof of qualification you cannot apply for it.
    So if you have time you can complete your B.Tech if you want to and get your degree and than apply for examination.
    Hope it guides you well.
