    Re: Is it possible to do IAS without graduation?

    The main requirement to be eligible to appear for this exam is that you need to have completed graduation. There is no relaxation on the same. Even Chartered Professional who have not completed graduation cannot appear for this course. So you are not eligible for the same. You need to pursue a graduation to be eligible. You can do it as a part time course. Since you are pursuing CA commerce stream should be apt for you. Also if you want to clear this exam you must be good in the general awareness section. You can start preparing when you are in the second year of graduation. You can appear for the same when you are in the final year.

    As to appear in the IAS CSAT entrance exam the basic eligibility is to have a graduation. He candidate from any stream of study can appear in the CSAT exam. The candidates who have not completed the course cannot appear for the exam. You need to take a graduation, even if you have a CA. Therefore, at present you are not eligible for appearing for the CSAT entrance test. It is advisable to take up a good graduation, simultaneously with the CA course. This will definitely help you in the long run. You can also go for a part time graduation course. Clearing CSAT and the main exam for the IAS is not a child’s play. One cannot get through the exam without shear dedication and preparation. So in the course of getting your graduation, make sure to prepare for the IAS exam also.

    Re: Is it possible to do IAS without graduation?

    NO, it is not possible, because you are asking for not to fulfilling the first and foremost requirement of UPSC civil service examinations.
    you have to graduation from any renounced institute or any other degree level course to become eligible for IAS exam.
    without graduation if you appear for prelims exam of IAS, and if you qualified that, even than you are not able to sit in mains exam, beacuse at the time of mains you have to submit your graduation degree.
    so if want to become an IAS officer, then first complete your graduation.\
    best wishes

    Dear,
    I think that you are not eligible for the IAS exam because the minimum requirement is that you must be a graduate.
    So , you should first do graduation and then you can apply for the IAS exam.
    I am happy that you are interested in IAS as it is one of the most prestigious positions .
    Apart from that age limitation is between 21-30 years.
    General candidates are given 4 chances .
    Thanks.

    Hey friend,

    IAS is one of the service exam held by UPSC.As you have asked for the information regarding whether you are eligible for the exam my answer is no you are not eligible as you need a need a at least a bachelor's degree.

    Eligibility:

    The candidate must be a citizen of India.
    The candidate must have age limit of 21-30 years.
    The candidate must a have a bachelor's degree from a recognized university.

    So when you finish your degree you can write this exam.

    Thank you.

    Re: Is it possible to do IAS without graduation?

    YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO ENROLL FOR IAS WITHOUT A GRADUATION DEGREE BECAUSE IT IS THE MINIMUM ELIGIBLITY CRITERIA.
    IAS EXAM HAS THREE STAGES-
    1. PRE NOW KNOWN AS CSAT -QUESTIONS ARE OF GENERAL SCIENCES , GK, ENVIORNMENTAL SCIENCES , REASONING AND ANALYTICAL QUESTIONS.
    2. MAINS EXAM- IT HAS 9 SUBJECTIVE PAPER -4 OF MAINS SUBJECTS TAKEN (2 EACH),1 OF ESSAY , 1 OF ENGLISH , 1 OF INDIAN LANGUAGE, 2 OF GK
    3. INTERVIEW

    ELIGIBLITY IS A DEGREE OF GRADUATION FROM A RECOGNISED UNIVERSITY.

    Re: Is it possible to do IAS without graduation?

    The eligibility criterion for appearing in Civil services examination has been made very clear by UPSC,
    You need to have a Graduation degree in any discipline.
    So you are not eligible. While doing CA course you should pursue graduation alongside your CA.
    Now you understand what is the importance of a graduation degree.
