    Dear Friend

    Here ,you have not mentioned the which UPSC exams you desire to apply.

    IF your age is between 17 to 21 years then you are applicable for the SCRA exams.

    But some other examinations like:

    >>Civil services examinations :

    ~~age should be between 21 to 30 years

    ~~Graduation in any stream is the minimum requirement.

    ~~Final year candidates are also eligible to apply



    >>Combined defence services.

    ~~ Graduation is the minimum requirement.

    ~~age should between 19 to 25 years.



    >>Indian forest services

    >>Central police force examinations


    For these examinations ,you are not eligible.


    Hope the answer satisfies you.

    Best of luck for your career.

    Dear, Sorry to say that you can't apply for UPSC exam except NDA & SCRA (if you are from Science background). You can't apply for another exams because you have to produce passed marksheet at the time of Main exam or interview. So, there are no chances to submit the same at 1st year....but you can prepare die hardly...Good Luck...

    For other exams and question papers you can go for this book:-http://www.amazon.com/10-UPSC-Advert...advertisements

    HI

    NO,

    You are not eligible for the UPSC exams.

    Because the minimum eligibility for the UPSC exams are given below:

    1.Candidate must have a bachelor degree.

    2.Candidate must be indian.

    3.Age of candidate lies between 21 - 30 years.

    so you have not completed your graduation and you are also lies in between the limit of these exams.

    so you are not eligible for UPSC exams.


    Thank you..........

    UPSC conducts various exams at the Undergraduates and Graduates Level.

    At the
    Undergraduates level it conducts exams like NDA and SCRA.
    Minimum educational qualification at the undegraduate level is 12th pass/equivalent.

    At the
    Graduates level it conducts exams like Civil Services,CDS,CPF,etc.
    Minimum Educational qualification is
    Graduation in any discipline from a UGC recognised University.

    Final year appearing students can apply on provision.

    Since you are not a graduate now you cannot apply for Graduate level exams by UPSC.

    Obviously you can apply & appear UPSC exams at the
    undergraduates level after meeting all the

    eligibility criteria prescribed for it.

    Dear Aspirant,

    Unfortunately it is not possible.
    Minimum education qualification required to apply for UPSC Examination is Graduation in any discipline from recognised University.
    So being a 1st B.Com Student you are not eligible to apply for UPSC exam.
    So I advise you to 1st complete your Graduation with full concentration on to it and than apply for UPSC Exam.
    In the mean time if you want you can start preparing for UPSC Exam in your vacation time or spare time.
    By starting to prepare earlier will give you more time to cover more syllabus and doing multiple revisions of syllabus/subjects.

    All the best for Future examination.

    Regards.

    see if you are willing to appear for a graduation based upsc examination then it is not possible .
    also as far as upsc 12th based examinations are concerned you are not eligible to appear for them as well.
    there are only two 12th based upsc examinations.

    Special Class Railway Apprentice Exam
    National Defense Academy and Naval Academy Examination (NDA/NA).


    for the NDA examination you need to pass 12th from a recognized board with
    PHYSICS MATHEMATICS ENGLISH as subjects .
    while for the SCRAexamination you need to pass 12th from a recognized board with
    PHYSICS MATHEMATICS CHEMISTRY as subjects .

    for the other upsc graduation based examinations you need to pass graduation.
    as per the eligibility criteria for the graduation based upsc examination
    the aspirants can also apply while pursuing the final year of their graduation.

    after your graduation you will become eligible to apply for the upsc examination such as
    civil services examination
    combined defense services examination
    central police forces examination etc


    there is no percentage criteria to appear for these examinations.
    you just need to have passing marks in your graduation to become eligible to apply for these examination

    apart form that there is an age relaxation for the OBC and the SC/ST category aspirants for these examination
    the age relaxation for the OBC category is 3 years while
    for the SC/ST category the age relaxation is 5 years.

    the notifications for these examination are released by upsc
    at the official upsc website www.upsc.gov.in
    you can fill the forms for these examinations during the notification period of these examination.
    both online and the postal modes of the application for the upsc examination are eligible .

    Re: Can a 1st year B.Com student apply for UPSC exam?

    We are sorry to say dear that you can not apply for UPSC exams when you are pursuing 1st year of your degree but after completing your degree you may apply for civil service examination

    A bachelor's degree in any discipline from a recognized university and final year pursuing candidates are also eligible to apply for this exam

    Age of the candidate should be between 21-30 years and relaxation in upper age as 5 years for SC/ST and 3 years for OBC category candidates

    If you wants to prepare for civil service examination and want to become an IAS officer then you should start your coaching institute preparation because you are pursuing 1st year and this is the golden time for you to prepare for this examination and if you give these 2 years for your preparation and when comes in final year then you would be eligible to apply for this exam and you should apply and get qualified at once in the preliminary examination but presently you need to learn everything about this examination then go for examination

    All the best
