    Re: Can I appear in UPSC exams? My date of birth is 08/12/1978.

    The age limit for the UPSc exam is below :
    21-30 for general cast
    21-33 for obc cast
    21-35 for sc/st cast
    21-35 fro ex-serviceman
    21-40 for physically handicapped .

    As your birth year is 1978 so that currently your age is more than 33 .

    So according to above criteria , if you belong to general cast or obc cast then you are not eligible for the exam because you can't fulfill the age criteria .

    But if you belong to sc/st cast or other catagory then you are allowed for giving the exam .

    So if you are eligible then start the preparation for the exam and give it otherwise go for the other exams in which you are eligible .

    best of luck

    Max age to apply for general candidates in UPSC civil services exam that is for IAS and IPS is 30 years so in that case you are not eligible to sit in this exam.
    But OBC candidates get 3 years age relaxation and SC/ST candidates gets 5 years age relaxation.

    dear friend,

    for upsc exams the age required is 21 to 30 years,

    so dear according to your date of birth you will be 34 year old by the end of year 2012,

    so dear as i mentioned the age limits for the upsc exam,
    so you are not eligible for the upsc exam if you belong to general or OBC category.

    but dear if you belong to SC/ST category then only you are eligible for the exam,
    then you can apply for the exam,
    otherwise you are not eligible for the upsc exam.
