You have not mentioned here in what examination you have got 60% marks. Is it a graduation for which you acquired above mentioned marks? And if it is a graduation then yes, you are eligible for appearing in the Civil Services Exam. Appearing for the UPSC-CSE (Civil Services Exams), i.e. IAS exams, one requires to have only a bachelor degree from any stream with simple passing. There are no specific requirements of percentage to become eligible for appearing in the IAS exam. So even a simple passing with 40% marks would work!

 

The eligibility criteria come in the official notification of the UPSC-CSE gets published every year on its website and in the national daily newspapers. There has clearly been mentioned that the candidate needs to have a valid bachelor degree from a recognized university to become eligible for Civil Services Exam.
