    Eligibility for Indian Police Service Examination :

    Candidate must be graduate from a recognized university and there is no bar for subject means you may complete your degree in any stream but university or institute should be recognized under the rules of government and final year pursuing candidates are also eligible to apply for this examination

    Age should be between 21-30 years and if you belongs to SC or ST or OBC then you may claim for upper age relaxation that will be as - 5 years for SC/ST and ESM and 3 years for OBC candidates

    If your age is 20 years then you can not apply for this examination because minimum required age is 21 years that is why you should prepare for examination first then think about to apply and this year may be good for you because after just one year you will complete 21 years of age then you may apply so you should complete your preparation between this duration of one year and when you will appear for exam then you will qualify but you are pursuing B.Com (CA) so this may create some problems because for IPS exam, you will have to give more than 8 hours a day so first complete your study then prepare for IPS exam

    More details about this post and examination are mentioned in the attached document, please download and get those details

    All the best
