    dear friend,

    sorry to say that you are not eligible to apply for UPSC Civil Services Exam that is conducted for the post of IPS officer.

    According to UPSC notification for general category candidate the age limit is 21 years to 30 years.
    candidate must have attained the age of 21 years on 1 August of the year of exam and he/she must not have attained the age of 30 years on that day.

    but according to your date of birth you will reach the age of 30 years on 04-February-2013. so you can't apply for the exam in 2013.

    Hi,


    The age limit for civil service (IAS/IPS/IFS) examination is 21 years - 30 years on the 1st august of the year of the examination.

    Now, on thew 1st august,2013 you will be 30 years 5 months 80 days old.

    As you belong to general category you are not eligible for age relaxation.

    Therefore, i am sorry to say that you are not eligible for civil service (IAS/IPS/IFS) examination 2013.


    THANKS.

    Yes you are eligible for the IPS -2013 exam but that will be your last chance after that you will not eligible for the exam .

    Because the maximum age limit for the general cast is 30 years so that this is your last chance for the exam .

    So do your best in preparation point of view so that you will crack the exam in your last attempt .

    The pattern of the exam is below .

    there are three parts .
    1) preliminary exam
    2) main exam
    3) interview

    So first of all start the preparation for the preliminary exam .

    For syllabus visit the upsc site www.upsc.gov.in

    good luck

    Hi

    For the IPS exam the age of the candidate on 1 August 2013 must not greater than 30 years.

    But your age for the IPS exam 2013 has gone.

    There is no relaxation for you because you are in General category so there is no age relaxation for you .

    So You can not apply for the IPS 2013 exam.

    Thank you........

    to become an IPS officer you have to apply for
    the upsc civil services examination.

    according to your educational qualifications

    your are fully eligible to appear for the upsc civil services examination.
    as graduation or engineering in any stream is the basic requirement
    to appear for this examination.

    the age limit to apply for this examination is 21-30 years .
    but as per your mentioned age
    you are not be eligible to appear in the upsc civil services 2013 examination .
    as you just crossed the age of 30 years which is the upsc age limit to apply for this examination.
    the age for this examination is considered as on the 1st AUGUST
    of the year of the examination.

    on the 1st of AUGUST you will be more than 30 year of age .
    so can not appear for this examination.
