    Dear Guest,


    First of all let me know you the educational qualification required for civil services examination.
    The candidate must hold a degree of any of Universities incorporated by an Act of the Central or State Legislature in India or other educational institutions established by an Act of Parliament or declared to be deemed as a University Under Section 3 of the University Grants Commission Act, 1956, or possess an equivalent qualification.
    So, if your university is recognized by UGC(University Grants Commission) & approved by DEC(Distance Education Council) then you have no problem in appearing CSAT.


    THANKS.
