    Re: Is CA student eligible for IAS?

    The minimum qualification required is graduation. Since you are a B.Com you are eligible for the appearing for this stream. Also since you were born in the year 1990 you will be 21years for June exam. The minimum age required is 21years. There is no restrictions for a CA to appear for this exam. Along with the mentioned criteria it is a must that the candidate be physically fit. So appear for the test only if you are physically fit as there will be an fitness test too if you clear the exam. So since you plan to appear for the June exam you must start preparing right away. Do solve as many question papers as possible. Also the forms will be available after 19th February. So make sure to purchase the form and send it across before 21st March.

    As to appear in the IAS exam, candidates need to have a graduation from any stream. As you have a B.com you can apply for the IAS exam. You must also meet the age limit criterion as to be qualified for the exam. The minimum age is 21 years. Candidates above 30 years are not eligible if not in the reservation category. As you are born in 1990 you will be in the apt age for the exam. Even with a CA you will be eligible for IAS exam. You must also be physically fit at the time of the exam. The application for the IAS exam will be available for sale from February 19th onwards. Make sure to apply before 21st March
