Apparently, the author is preparing for a competition examination for which the eligibility criteria is a graduation degree only as the post graduation degree is not yet completed. Therefore, in case the author is confident about clearing the competitive examination on the strength of his hard work, then more attention should be paid to the preparation of the competitive examination and in such a case, he may think about switching over to the distance learning mode if possible.

However, as it is well known, only preparing and appearing in any competitive examination is not enough until and unless the same is cleared also with flying colors. Therefore, in such doubtful cases, continuing in the regular mode is likely to be more beneficial in the long run.

Primarily it is up to the author concerned to decide as nobody else knows better about his capacity to do the hard work by leaving all other activities aside than the author himself.

You are studying M.Sc. in Physics. It is really very difficult to do M.Sc. in Physics in Distance Education mode. Even if any University offers this (for example, Annamalai University) course, the practical classes will be a real problem.

On the other hand, competitive examinations also demand thorough study, regular time-bound practice and preparation for interviews. Additionally, these are competitive examinations (not qualifying examinations) where you have to remain among the top candidates to achieve success. You also have to be successful before you reach the maximum age-limit.

In view of above, if you think you can't manage both (academic study and study for competitive examinations), I would advise you to postpone academic study till you are successful in any of the competitive examinations you are going to appear.

Best of luck!

You cannot take up your post graduation in Physics through a distance education mode since the practical is the essential part with the theoretical one and in distance education there is no provision for the arrangement of practicals and as such you cannot pursue M.SC course in Physics via distance education mode.
In case, you are determined to crack your competitive examination by dint of your hard labor, you can go in the similar line with your full attention to your studies. For all the competitive examinations be it a Banking examination or UPSC examination, you may come across renowned institutes helping you in achieving your target. By surfing through the internet,you can access the right platform for your guidance.
Once you clear the competitive test and achieve your goal, you can go ahead for the management degree with some coveted institution to enhance your job prospects.
