    I think a post graduate degree is sufficent if you have gained min. 60% marks.
    Also you have to eligible for this exam .
    But you are a managment student so i think you have to face problem for filling forum .
    Because a managment student cann't appare in IFS (Forest) exam.
    I hope have understood.

    Dear Friend

    I think you are asking about the Indian Forest services entrance exam as IFS stands for the both Indian Foreign services which comes under civil services exam as well as Indian Forest services for which UPSC conducts a separate exam though for this year the first stage that is preliminary exam is same for the both Civil services exam and forest services.

    The eligibility criteria for the Indian Forest services examination is as :

    1.Academic qualification:

    >>You must have a bachelor's degree in any discipline from a recognized university .However final year graduation candidates can also apply for the exam.

    >>You must ensure one thing that you must have read one of the following mentioned subjects while pursuing your bachelor's degree that are animal husbandry,veterinary science ,zoology,physics ,veterinary science,physics ,mathematics ,forestry or degree in agriculture or degree in engineering,statistics etc.

    So as per your query post graduation degree is sufficient to make you eligible for the IFS exam.

    2.Age limitations:

    >>General candidate:21-30 years with only four attempts for the exam.

    >>OBC candidate :21-33 years with seven attempts for the exam

    >>SC/ST category candidate :21-35 years with no limit on no of attempts

    3.Nationality: You must be an Indian citizen.

    Note: If you are eligible for the exam ,you can apply for the IFS exam at the official website that is www.upsconline.nic.in.The important dates for the IFS 2013 exam are already over .So you need to wait for the next year IFS exam.

    Yes... it's totally sufficient... actually it's more than sufficient.

    But, as you are post-graduated in management... there's no problem but you must ensure one thing that you must have read one of the following mentioned subjects while pursuing your bachelor's degree that are animal husbandry,veterinary science ,zoology,physics ,veterinary science,physics ,mathematics ,forestry or degree in agriculture or degree in engineering,statistics etc.

    That's the main eligibilty criteria for IFS.
