    UPSC has still not declared the notifications for the 2013 Prelims or CSAT exams.

    But prelims exam is scheduled for 19th May 2013

    Eligibilty to apply is:
    >> Graduation pass in any stream
    Final year Graduation students can apply
    No minimum marks is required in the Graduation to apply

    AGE- Minimum age to apply is 21 years
    Maximum age to apply is 30 years
    Maximum 33 years for the OBC Candidates

    Maximum 35 years for the SC/ST Candidates

    Now the cutoff date to calculate the age is 1st August 2013 for the 2013 UPSC exams.
    So, only candidates who were born between 2nd August, 1983 and not later
    than 1st August, 1992 can apply

    So, you CANNOT APPLY for this years UPSC exams

    • No, you are not eligibile to apply for the civil services examination this year.
    • As per the eligibility criteria, you need to have completed the graduation in any stream an recognised university.
    • As per the age criteria, your's age must be between 21 years to 30 years as on 1st august 2013 for applying this year.
    • In other words, your's date of birth must be between in limit of 2nd August, 1983 and not later than 1st August, 1992.
    • As you mentioned that your's date of birth is 27.08.1992, so you are not eligibile this year.

    Hi,
    No , you cannot appear if you have not turned 21 years of age beofre the exam, which is tentatively going to be held in May.

    To be eligible for IAS exam conducted by UPSC, one has to fulfill the criteria required.

    Eligibility for IAS exam -

    Candidate should have done three years bachelor's degree from a recognised university.

    The age of the candidate should be minimum 21 years and maximum 30 years.

    Anyone who does not fulfills these conditions is not eligible to apply for IAS exam.

    This exam is conducted in three stages -

    Preliminary, which is basically objective type.

    Interview, upon qualifying both the exams.

    So, you can apply for the exam next year, when you achieve minimum age required for this exam.

    Re: Can I appear for IAS exam if turning 21 years old in August?

    Sorry to say but you are not eligible for the Civil Service exam 2013 because you can't fulfill the eligibility criteria .

    Generally the criteria for the UPSC CSE exam is below :

    => one must be graduation in any stream from any recognized university .

    => A final year students are also eligible for the exam but before the main exam one have to show the provisional certificate of graduation .

    => Age limit for different casts is below ( As on 1/8/2013)
    21-30 for general
    21-33 for obc
    21-35 for sc/st
    21-35 for ex-serviceman
    21-40 for PWD

    Now as per the above criteria age must be completed 21 on or before 1st august 2013 but as you mentioned in your query that your birth date is 27 august so that you are not eligible for giving the exam .

    You have to wait one more year for being eligible for the exam till you prepare for the exam .

    But one thing must be remember that there are certain limit for giving the exam like

    For general cast maximum 4 attempts are allowed
    For obc cast maximum 7
    For sc/st no limit .

    So after preparing well then and then give the exam otherwise your attempt will be failed .

    So don't worry you just prepare one more year so that you at least able to crack the preliminary exam .

    Thank you...
