    hi
    I am sorry to say but as you have completed your 21 years limit hence you are not allowed to give the exam.
    Because for giving the SCRA exam, the eligibility is that you need to be a 12th class passed/appeared from a recognized indian board and your age should be in between 16-21 years and if your age crosses the 21 years mark, after that you are no more eligible for giving the exam.

    Sorry dude, If you are completed the 21 years age. Then you are not allowed to appear for the SCRA exam. The 21 years is the maximum age limit to appear in the exam. If Your age instead of 22, 21 is running then in that case you will be allowed to appear in the exam.
