    those who are final year students, completed engineering candidates are eligible to apply engineering service exam.

    so now you are not eligible for this exam.

    No you cannot apply to UPSC Engineering Services Exams while you are in second year B.E.(Civil).

    -Minimum educational qualification required is a Bachelors Degree in Civil,Mechanical,Electrical and

    Electronics & Telecommunication Engineering.

    -Age limit is 21-30yrs in general category and relaxation by

    +3yrs for OBC and by +5yrs for SC/ST candidates is applicable.

    -Final year appearing candidates can apply provisionally.

    So you have to wait for completion of B.E.(Civil) and meantime keep preparing.

    For more information log on to www.upsc.gov.in.

    No My friend , you are not eligible for the UPSC engineering service currently because you don't fulfill the eligibility criteria so you can't give the exam .

    You have to fulfill the below criteria for appearing in the IES service .

    Education Qualification :
    -> You have to complete the B.E. / B.Tech from any recognized university .
    -> A final year student also eligible for the exam but before the interview one have to complete the degree .

    Age Limit :
    21-30 for general cast
    21-33 for obc cast
    21-35 for sc/st cast

    So you have to wait two more years for giving the exam till you prepare for the exam .

    good luck

    NO,

    it is good to take civil branch because there is a restriction of branches also but

    my dear friend you are not eligible for indian engineering service examination .

    because only those candidates are eligible to sit in the examination who complete their graduation or pursuing final year .


    so i advice you to complete your graduation with good score with preparation for it and apply after

    completing degree .

    but always remember that your age must be in between 21-30 to become eligible to the examination.



    with best wishes

    good luck!!

    Dear Friend,

    Unfortunately you are not eligible to apply for UPSC Exam while pursuing your Civil Engineering.
    Because to apply for UPSC Engineering Services Exam minimum education qualification required is Bachelor's Degree in Civil, Mechanical.
    Yo should have your degree in your hand to apply for the examination.
    So I advise you to complete your Bachelors first and than apply for the examination.
    If you have adequate time than you can start preparing for the said exam if your ultimate goal is to join Government Department.
    the earlier you start to study for the exam the better will be chance to cover as much syllabus as possible.
    So all the best for future examination.

    Regards.
