    Re: If passed degree from open university/distance university. Can I write IAS exam?

    Yes,sure after passing from a open university/distance ,you are eligible to give UPSC examinations provided that your university should be approved from DEC which stands for distance education council.




    IAS is the Indian Administrative services and the examination for it is conducted by the UPSC in the category of civil services examinations.

    Final year candidates of graduation are also eligible to apply for this examination.

    You must adhere to the age criteria that is your age must be between 21-30 years.

    Civil services examination is the most prestigious as well as toughest examination of India.You need to start your preparation with good strategy as well as from good institutes like

    Rau's IAS academy

    Chanakya's IAS academy

    TIME

    Career launchers.

    At least of 5 hours of labour daily is required for proper preparation of civil services examination .Proper revision at regular intervals is more necessary than moving forward.


    Being a general candidate you will get four attempts only.

    hope the information is helpful to you.

    all the best

    Dear,

    it is no matter for the open university/distance education, condition is that upsc required for the ias candidate should passed the graduation in any stream from the recognized university which is approved by the ugc/aicet/state government/center government/DEC.

    if you complete the degree from the recognized and complete the age 21 years then you are eligible for the exam.number of the candidates give the exam which is passed out from the open university like as IGNOU university. so don,t worry you are eligible the exam after recognized university.

    the notification of the exam is declared by the upsc in the month of the December and the preliminary exam is held in the month of the may and mains exam held in the month of the October.

    for more information please update with the www.upsc.gov.in

    best of luck for the exam.

    Hello

    YES YOU CAN APPLY FOR THE IAS EXAM AFTER PASSING THE DEGREE FROM THE OPEN UNIVERSITY.

    The degree from the open university have the same validity and importance that a degree from the regular system.Both the degree have are valid for the both government and private sector.The distance mode of education was started by the government to provide assistance to those who can not study and go to school, and colleges as they have to earn for their livelihood,by these process they can also study well as they did not need to go the school and university daily.

    hence both the modes of education are good enough to fetch you a job,and is valid for all types of government and private jobs.

    For more details visit the website of the UPSC.
