    Let me tell you one thing.

    There is no exam called IAS Exam which you are saying to join IAS.

    you have to write civil services exam to join IAS which is conducted by UPSC (Union Public Service Commission)

    candidate should have completed graduation to be eligible for this exam.

    you have scored 45% of marks in your graduation.

    this qualification is more than enough for you to write civil services exam.

    one more thing.

    your age should be 21-30 years to write this exam

    in addition you should be a citizen from India.

    Re: Can I apply for IAS exam having scored only 45% marks in Graduation?

    Dear friend,

    There is no doubt of not appearing in the exam.

    You can without worry apply for the exam.

    The thing is that you have passed your graduation and then it doesnot matter how much percentage you have secured,
    because according to eligibility criteria you just need to be passed in the exam and that you are.

    IAS exam is conducted by UPSC and for almost all exams which are conducted by UPSC does not require any particular percentage to apply for the exam.

    So Instead of worrying prepare for your exams well as this is one of the toughest exam and the marks you get in IAS is really a matter of.

    So try to get maximum score in IAS exam.

    Basically You will have to appear for Civil services exam.

    The exam is conducted in stages:

    PRELIMS (CSAT)
    MAINS
    INTERVIEW

    Eligibility criteria for civil services exam:-

    Any candidate who has done graduation or is in appearing year can sit for the exam.

    No stream restriction.

    No percentage restriction.
