can we write upsc by open degree

Shubhangi sinha 31st Jan, 2020

Hello Ganesh,

Yes, you are eligible for the civil service exam even after completion of degree from an open University.

The university giving you the degree must be recognised by state or centre government.

Open Universities like NIOS and IGNOU are all recognised by the government of India.

Open degree courses are good as it gives you the plenty of time to focus in your preparation for the exam.

Good luck,

Hope it helps :)

which college is best for upsc

Ashquanda Iqbal 18th Dec, 2019

Hello Abhi,


There is no particular college for preparation of UPSC as it is an exam conducted in state level to collect merit students who then get ranked jobs in civil services such as IAS, IPS, IAFS, Armed forces, etc.

However, there are various trusted and certified coaching centers in India where you can prepare for this exam. For example:

  1. Vajiram and Ravi IAS coaching, Delhi
  2. Plutus IAS coaching, Delhi
  3. Shankar IAS Academy, Chennai
  4. Analog IAS Coaching, Delhi
  5. National IAS Academy, Bangalore
  6. ALS IAS- Situated in 4 Bindu Palit lane, Near Girish park Metro, Kolkata is one of the most reputed coaching centre in Kolkata.

These are some of the best coaching institutes for preparation of UPSC. Hope I have resolved your query. Please write to us if you have any more questions.

Best of Luck!


I hv qualified in the UPSC CMS & got my interview in the next week. If I get selected and they let me hold my seat till PG, Will I get to work in my specialised dept when I cm back from PG or I wl still hv to wrk as General MO? Or path to work as a specialised doc in upsc cms is diffrnt? Plz

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 30th Nov, 2019

If you attend an interview this year, they expect you to join this y ear itself. They will not hold the position for the next 2-3 years until you complete your PG. The position has been opened for a vacancy to be filled now. It cannot hold for the next 2-3 years. If you want to complete your PG and come back, you will have to reapply and then based on the position available, you get a designation. Now there is a feasibility where in Candidates, join  the service and then take leave to pursue higher studies. They can come back and join the position once they complete the course.


in my birth certificate my fathers name is Ashok Kumar Shukla but in my 10 and 12 marksheet it is Ashok Shukla so will there be any problem during upsc exam

Pankhuri Kumari 25th Nov, 2019

Dear student

As per my knowledge , it is the 10th and 12th class marksheet that matters when you apply for exams. You are asked your name, yours father's name, you DOB as per your class 10th marksheet. It is specifically mentioned in the application forms. So you don't need to worry about this. Your 10th class marksheet is the proof of your DOB and other details. You will not face any problems.

All the best


let about upsc exams please iwant to crack that

Aman Raj Student Expert 18th Nov, 2019

Hello Vignesh

You can appear for this exam once you’re done with MBBS. On clearing it, you can expect to live a comfortable and contented life and possibly even a lucrative career later on, with a lot of perks. You will be posted to any branch of Indian Govt. like the Railways , or as General Duty Doctors and at many other posts.

Now, the catch. You might find it very difficult to study further while working, as you may not have the luxury of time to prepare for a PG course and work simultaneously ( although a three government service makes you eligible for a post grad seat through the In-service quota).

The pay varies from post to post; A post higher up would fetch you more than Rs. 80,000 ,whereas a medical officer may only earn around Rs 45,000.
