    Sorry,Dear

    You are not eligible for Civil Service Exam, because your age is below 21 years

    Age should be between 21-30 years

    Must be Graduate from any recognized university or Final year student can also apply

    Dear now you are under age, so you can not apply

    You can apply next year till then wait and do preparation for the examinaion

    Best of Luck

    NO, you cannot apply for the UPSC Civil services exams.

    The reason being that the minimum age to apply for this exams is 21 years and you are just 20 years old, so cannot apply right now
    Once you attain the age of 21 years than you can apply

    Educational qualifications required to apply for this exam is Graduation pass
    Minimum age to apply is 21 years
    Maximum age to apply is 30 years

    Please also note that UPSC has put up a CAP of 4 chances to apply for the General Candidates and 7 times for the OBC candiadtes

    Hello

    It is necessary that you complete the degree,before you apply for the exam,but being in the final year also you can apply for the civil services.But it is necessary that you attain the age of minimum 21 years,to apply for the exams.

    For any category it is necessary that you must have completed 21 years of age before applying,now you must have attain the age of 21 years before 1st August of the exam year,that is the year in which you are applying for the exam you must complete 21 years of age before 1st August of that year.

    Hence it is important that you reach the age of 21 years before applying for the exam.

    Hi

    I am really sorry to tell you that you can not apply for the UPSC exam.

    Because the Minimum qualification for the UPSC exam is that you must have a bachelor degree from a recognized university of India and your age must lies in between 21-30 years.

    But your age at this time is 20 years so yo can not apply for the UPSC exams.

    You can apply for the UPSC exams after completion of your graduation when your age will become 21 years.


    Thank you....
