    Minimum eligibility criteria of IAS exam-
    Your age should be in between 21 to 30 years.
    You should be a citizen of India.
    you should be graduate from any field.

    Since you are only 20 years so you need to wait for one more year.

    best of luck....

    Re: Am I able to take IAS examination being 20 years old?

    I am sorry to say that you are not eligible to appear for IAS Exam as you are a candidate with an age of 20 years.

    There is no separate Entrance Exam called IAS Exam. But, instead there is a civil services exam which is the common written exam for the candidates to be placed in various civil services like
    -IAS
    -IPS
    -IRS etc.

    The minimum age with which a candidate can appear for this exam is by completion of 21 years.

    The upper age limit with which a candidate of General category appear for this exam is by 30 years.

    Relaxation is there in upper age limit upto 3 years for the candidates of OBC category.

    For the candidates of SC/ST category, relaxation is there in upper age limit upto 5 years.

    Relaxation is there in upper age limit upto 10 years for the candidates with physical disabilities.

    So, I suggest you to have good preparation for this exam for this year and appear for civil services examination as and when you complete 20 years and reach 21 years.

    The selection procedure to be placed in IAS and other civil services is by
    -CSAT (Civil Services Aptitude Test)
    -Civil Services Main Examination
    -Interview

    Have good preparation for the exam and crack it.

    For complete information on this exam, you can visit

    Re: Am I able to take IAS examination being 20 years old?

    sir,sorry to say that you are not eligible to give IAS examination until you have attained the age of 21 years.
    because the minimum age eligibility criteria for IAS examination is that the candidate belonging to
    General category-it is 21-30 years of age.
    OBC category-there is a relaxation of 3 years that is 21-33 years.
    ST/SC category-there is a relaxation of 5 years that is 21-35 years.
    and minimum education that candidate must have a graduate or post graduate degree from recognized university.

    Re: Am I able to take IAS examination being 20 years old?

    A candidate must be 21 years of age to appear for the civil service examination.Your date of birth confirms that you are 20 plus and will turn 21 only this August.Besides you can keep trying afterwards until the age of :
    ~30 if you are a General category student
    ~33 if you are an OBC
    ~35 if you are SC/ST
    So you should wait.Meanwhile you can take that time to prepare for the test.IAS is one of the toughest exams in the world not because the questions asked are utterly difficult but because the probability of selection is extremely small.

    Also, I doubt that you have completed any degree course which is also a requirement.You must have passed a degree course in any discipline from a recognized University.

    So start your preparation as it is one of the toughest competitive exam and needs lots and lots of knowledge and general awareness.
    You can give the next attempt as you will attain 21 years of age...

    No you are not eligible for the UPSC exam because you don't fulfill the eligibility criteria.
    The criteria for the UPSC exam is below :
    ->one should done their graduation from any recognized university in from any stream .
    -> A final year student are also eligible for the exam but before the main exam one have to complete the graduation .
    -> Age should be between 21-30 for general cast , 21-33 for obc cast , 21-35 for sc/st & ex-serviceman , 21-40 for physically handicapped .

    So as per this rules you are not eligible for the exam because your age is 20 .
    But you can prepare for the exam and then give the exam .
    good luck

    To be eligible for IAS you must be 21 years of age on 1st August of the year,which you are appearing.Maximum 30 for general category,33 for OBCs and 35 for SC/ST.So,i think you have one more year to prepare.So,utilise this one year with full efforts and qualify in your very first attempt.

    ~35 if you are SC/ST
