    Min eligibilty for the UPSC civil services exams is:
    Graduation Pass in any stream from a recognised university

    AGE-candidate should have completed min 21 years of age as on 1st Aug 2013 for the 2013 prelims Exams
    Max age to apply is 30 years
    OBC gets 3 years age relaxation and SC/ST gets 5 years age relaxation.

    Number of attempts- 4 for general candidates
    7 for OBC candidates
    No restriction for SC/ST candidates

    So if you meet the above age criterria than you can apply for the next prelims exams which will be held in May 2013

    If you are about to appear for the IAS exam in the year 2013 and you have completed your graduation the previous year, you need to refer to the following regulations imposed in the age criteria.

    You should have completed 21 years till August 2013, i.e you must be of 21 years of age prior to the date...
    The last limit is 30 years , i.e you must not be more than 30 years in age.

    Since you posted the query on 9th September 2012 , stating than in 4 months you would be 21 years in age, you are no-doubt elligible for the exam, so no need to worry. Since you would be of the age prior to the date , their is no restriction whatsoever in this case. Start preparing to crack the exam, you are very much eligible.

    ALL THE BEST, TAKE CARE !!

    Re: Am I eligible to give the IAS preliminary exam as I am 4 months away to complete 21 years of age?

    No, you can't give the preliminary exam of civil services examination if you are four months short of 21 years. Because as per the minimum age limit stated by UPSC is 21 years as on 1st august 2013 for appearing in next year examination. Though the educational qualification required is graduation in any stream but you must also attain the minimum age required for it. As per that, now you can only give this exam on the year 2014. The preliminary examination is generally conducted in the month of may every year. Notifications are released in the month of february.

    Dear questioner you can not violate UPSC rules framed by the Union public service commission to conduct IAS exam twice in a year.As you know IAS exam is toughest one so it is better you take better preparation to crack the IAS exam within 1 attempt, though a Gen.& OBC candidate can avail 4 ..7 attempts respectively.The minimum age is 21 years' so you get ready for next year.(2014)

    Thank you,
