    yes you can

    you have to follow the following pattern

    1) using your !0 th marks you can join the diploma course

    2) once you finish the diploma course you need to apply for the engineering admissions in the direct second year so called as the lateral entry admissions

    3) after you finish you BE you are eligible for the IAS examination

    This is the bypass way to go with , if you don't want to do 12th standard

    all the best

    No, I Dont think so That You are eligible for IAS Examination, because you have not completed your 12Th examination, So how you will get admission in Degree course. To apply for IAS Examination, You have to complete your Graduation from a Recognised colleges, But you have not complete your 12Th, then its not possible for you to appear for IAS Entrance examination because Your documents was properly checked after clear the examination and if you will find that you have not completed your 12Th examination, then May be you are Not selected, So please confirm from the concerned department first and then apply for IAS examination. Only Graduate candidates between the age of 21 to 30 years are eligible to apply for IAS examination, for complete information visit the UPSC website.

    It is not possible to take graduation from a recognized University without completing plus two or equivalent course. For appearing in IAS examination, you should complete your degree from a renowned University. If you want to be an IAS officer, you have to appear for Civil Service Examination. The Commission responsible for conducting the IAS examination is UPSC. The duration of the examination is two hours.

    The minimum age for UPSC exam is 21 and that of maximum age is 30. Age relaxation will be given to SC/ST/OBC candidates. For applying in UPSC exams, you should be an Indian Citizen. UPSC will publish the notification for the examination in various departments. Candidates can download the application directly from the official website of UPSC.

    No, you cannot apply for IAS after completing your 12th standard., actually for giving IAS examination, you have to fulfill the criteria set by UPSC organization that is the candidate should be a resident of India, minimum eligibility is having bachelors degree with minimum 55%age and age limit is 21-30 years if you fulfill these demands then you can I.A.S examination so as to become a I.A.S officer . And one thing more be physically and mentally strong as you have to serve the nation.

    For IAS services an entrance exam would be held each year conducted by UPSC i.e. Union Public Service Commission for different civil services
    And there is no hard and fast rule for this entrance exam ,for this the minimum educational qualification is to complete any graduation course from recognized university and
    the second is age criteria which comes under lower age and upper age according to quota
    So for IAS i would like to suggest you to complete 12 and then graduation only then you are eligible for this entrance exam and for more details must visit official website of UPSC

    IAS post is a reputed post in India,only those people can become ias whose background,documents are clear and good.I dont think that you will be eligible to appear in ias exam. Even you said that you had done graduation,so how it can be possible, in any special case it might be possible but in your case how any college can give you admission without completing +2 standard,how you passed entrance exams? There are many questions that are arising but let me inform you the eligiblity criteria for ias exam. Eligiblity- Eligiblity for ias exam is that a candidate must be graduate from a recognized university,should be citizen of India,should be physicaly fit,age limit is 21-30 years of age. Now my suggestion is to complete +2.

    No,I don't think so you are eligible for IAS.
    The eligibility for IAS is a bachelor's degree from a recognized university.
    Even for doing a correspondence course,you need to complete your 12th.

    sorry to say my dear friend your not eligible for the IAS examination because your not complete 12th itself , and then the correspondence graduation is not a much value for the IAS entrance exam . The eligibility of the IAS exam is the candidate should qualified in graduation with good percentage of marks in recognized university . The age of the candidate between 21 to 30 years and 5years relaxation is given to the sc/st and obc candidates . So you have try to finish you 12th and apply for the graduation in regular . Then only your eligible for the IAS entrance examination .
    All The Best !

    No you should not be able to sit in examination of IAS.
    As you haven't completed your +2 study and have not bachelor degree from a recognized university so you are not eligible for this.
    You can try for any other courses which makes your career bright.
    After 10th you can do diploma in engineering from a regular college and than apply for engineering and when you completed York engineering course than you should be able to sit in IAS examination.
    Thanks.

    IAS- Indian Administrative Service examination is conducted by the UPSC every year.Upsc is responsible for the Almost all the Civil service examination.IAS is the civil service so this examination is also conducted by the UPSC.This examination is Conducted in the following three stages:

    • Preliminary.
    • Mains.
    • Interview.


    I think You can't appear in the IAS examination.Because For appearing in this examination one has to be graduate.And for the graduation degree There must be +2 degree.If you will take the admission in any college or university for the bachelor degree program then they will first ask to you for the +2 degree.So without completing your +2 you can not do the Graduation course and without completing your graduation course you can not appear in the IAS examination.If you want any more details regarding this examination then you can visit on to the official web site of the UPSC.
