    Hello friend,


    if you completed your degree from an open university then there is no problem you are eligible for the civil services examination.

    look friend,

    there is no any term in the notification of civil services examination saying that the degree holder from open university are not eligible for the examination which means you are eligible for the examination, but yes the university by which you obtained your degree must be a govt recognized .

    there are two basic requirements only which is to be fulfilled by you if you wish to become an IAS officer .

    which is

    1. eligibility criteria.
    2. age criteria.

    first talk about the
    eligibility criteria:-

    1. THE CANDIDATE MUST BE A GRADUATE WITH A GOVT RECOGNIZED UNIVERSITY IN ANY STREAM.
    2. THE CANDIDATE MUST BE THE CITIZEN OF INDIA.


    and now see the age criteria


    AGE CRITERIA:-

    1. FOR GENERAL CATEGORY:- 21-30 Y.
    2. FOR OBC CATEGORY:- 21-33 Y.
    3 FOR SC/ST ASPIRANTS:- 21-35 Y.


    SO CHECK THE ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA IF BOTH MATCHES WITH YOU THAN YOU WILL BE ELIGIBLE.
    AND YES DO NOT WORRY ABOUT YOUR DEGREE , IT IS ELIGIBLE FOR CIVIL SERVICES .


    GOOD LUCK
