    hi

    yes sir

    generally for civil service exam the maximum age is 30 years but there are certain relaxation age limit for sc/sc/obc/ex-service men/pH

    they are as follows=

    1)sc/st=relaxation age of 5 years i.e 35 years

    2)obc=relaxation age of 3 years i.e 33 eyars

    3)ex-service men=relaxation age of 5 years i.e 35 years

    4)PH=relaxation age of 10 years i.e 40 years

    so you still have a chance to appear for civil service exam,conduct by union public service commission (upsc) once in a year

    -civil service exam stages are=

    *preliminary test=consists of objective questions

    *main exam=who cleared preliminary test are allowed

    *interview=selected candidates

    for exam notification visit=www.upsc.gov.in


    good luck

    thank you
