    Re: What is the eligibility criteria for IAS? Am I applicable for it after completing B.A (Political Science)?

    Dear,
    The essential qualification for the UPSC's CSAT examination is to pass the Bachelor degree in any discipline at any recognized university. The age should be within 21 to 30 years. The upper age limit for the examination for OBC is 03 years and for SC/ST is 05 years. There is only four chances for the General candidates, seven chances for OBC and upto 35 years of age for SC/ST to appear the examinations. So you can definitely appear for the examination as a candidate of B.A. in Political Science, if you should complete your B.A. from recognized university. Best of Luck........
