    you are not eligible for UPSC prelims exam of this year as well as upcoming year.

    maximum age for civil services prelims exam is 40 years if you are ph candidates.

    but according to your date of birth, you are now 45 years.

    it is not possible for 45 years candidates to join prelims exam.

    based on your study,

    choose another option.

    good luck.................

    The different age limits of different categories are-
    1)21 to 30 years for the general candidate.
    2)21 to 33 years for the OBC(Other Backward Classes).
    3)21 to 35 years for the SC/ST,ex-government services.
    4)21 to 40 years for the physically handicapped candidates.

    Now your date of birth is on 23/5/1978 and your age now is 34 years 9 months 20 days.Hence you are applicable only if you belong to the SC/ST,physically handicapped candidates.

    The maximum age limit to apply for Civil services is

    ###Your age is much difference from age limits so, you are not eligible..
