    Hi Sir,

    I'm sorry to say that you're no longer eligible for the UPSC exams.

    And there's age relaxation for the Central Government Employees only.

    The Age limits for the Central Government Employee:

    General : 21-35yrs

    OBC : 21-38yrs

    SC/ST : 21-40yrs

    As ZP school comes under State Government, you're not eligible even if you're 37 yrs.

    I wish You all SUCCESS with your life ahead!

    to apply for civil services exam conducted by upsc your age should be 21-30 years .
    if you belong to OBC and SC/ST category you will get an age relaxation of 3 and 5 years respectively.
    being a government employee you can get an age relaxation of 5 years more.

    but since your age is 42 years so right now you are not eligible for any of the upsc exam according to the age criteria of upsc.

    Age Limitations for UPSC Civil Service Exams :

    Candidate must be between 21-30 years in age and if candidate belong to reserved category as - SC/ST, OBC, PWD and Ex-Servicemen then he/she will get relaxation in upper age as per government standards which is about 5 years for Ex-Servicemen and SC/STs, 3 years for OBCs and 10 years for PWD category candidates.

    You have crossed the maximum age limit and sir there is no chance for you to apply for Civil Service exams

    You are a teacher in profession so that you can grow your career ahead in your present stream means if you having a post graduate degree in any discipline from a recognized university with at least 50% marks then you can apply for - UGC - NET exam and also for PGT exam and if you qualify the exam then you can become a government lecturer and go for PhD also.

    Sorry to say dear you are not eligible for the exam because you cross the over age.

    The exam limit for the exam is the 21 to 30 years for the unreserved category.


    Age limit for the OBC category is the 33 years.


    Age limit for the SC/ST category is the 35 years.


    No age relaxation for the government employee.


    You cross the entire age limit so you are not eligible for the exam.


    Best of luck for the future.

    you are not eligible for the upsc exams,
    upsc give age relaxation to those candidates who belongs to OBC and SC/ST category,
    also the candidates who are government employees gets age relaxation of 5 years.

    being a government employee you will surely get age relaxation of 5 years,
    age limits for you is 21 to 40 years,
    being 42 years you still not eligible for the upsc exam,

    so you cannot apply for the upsc exam.

    ALL THE BEST ..........

    hi
    I am sorry to say but being a 42 year old, you are not eligible for giving the civil services examination anyhow.
    For giving the exam you need to be a graduate in any stream from a recognized indian university and your age should be in between 21-30 years.
    For obc category the age limit is 21-33 years whereas the age limit for the sc/st candidates is 21-35 ears.
    There is a relaxation of 10 years given to the PH students, which makes their age limit as 21-40 years.
    And as you do not fit in the age limit, you are not allowed to give the exam.
