    Re: Can I appear in Indian Engineering Services exam being 20 years old?

    dear aspirant,


    Sorry to say that you are not eligible to apply for IES(Indian Engineering Services) exam at the age of 20 years. To appear for exam you must have attained the age of 21 years on the 1st January of the year of exam.

    but according to me you must utilize that time for the preparation of exam.

    for appearing in exam you have to fulfill some other requirement like:

    >>
    Engineering degree in any stream

    >>your age must be within 21 years to 30 years on 1 January of the year of exam. there is relaxation in upper age limit upto 3 years for OBC and 5 years for SC/ST candidates.

    UPSC also provide the facility to apply for the exam online on following official link of UPSC:

    http://www.upsconline.nic.in/






    Good Luck......

    Hello

    NO YOU WILL NOT BE ELIGIBLE FOR THE 2014 IES EXAMS.

    The minimum age required to be applicable for the IES exams for all sorts of categories is 21 years.

    Now it is important that you must have attended the age of 21 years before 1st August in the exam year,that the year in which you are applying for the exam,it is necessary to attend the age of 21 years before 1st August in the exam year.

    Your date of birth is 25/2/1994 and will be of 21 years on 25/2/2015 and then you will be applicable for the 2015 IES exams,but not for the 2014 IES exams.
