    No my friend currently you are in second year and as per the UPSC criteria you are not allowed for the exam , you should either complete the graduation or come in the final year of graduation till you are not eligible for the UPSC exam .

    Because the requirement mentioned by the UPSC to apply for the exam is below :
    EDUCATION QUALIFICATION:
    minimum graduation from any recognized university .
    or
    A final year student also eligible for the exam but before the Main exam one have to complete the graduation .

    AGE LIMIT:
    21-30 for general cast
    21-33 for obc cast
    21-35 for sc/st cast
    21-40 for physically handicapped

    MAXIMUM ATTEMPTS ARE ALLOWED:
    4 for general cast
    7 for obc cast
    no limit for sc/st cast


    So you have to first eligible for the exam till you prepare for the exam .

    good luck

    sorry dear!!!!!!!!
    while pursuing the 2nd years of your course you can not apply for the upsc examinations .
    but don't worry you will become eligible to apply for the upsc examination in the final year of your course.

    you may know graduation is the main eligibility to apply for the upsc examination.
    to apply for the upsc examinations you must attain the age of 21 years to become eligible to apply.
    age limit to apply for the upsc examination is 21-30 years .
    after your graduation you can apply for the upsc examinations such as

    Central Police Forces Examination (CPF)
    Civil Services Examination
    Combined Defense Services Examination (CDS)

    but in my opinion you should start the preparation for the upsc examinations right from now if you are willing to get government job through UPSC.
    please go with the syllabus for the preparation of the upsc examination.
