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

    Re: Can I give UPSC CSAT at the age of 32 years?

    Age Criteria for the UPSC Civil Service Exam is below :
    21-30 for general cast candidates
    21-33 for obc cast candidates
    21-35 for sc/st cast candidates
    21-40 for physically handicapped.

    As your age is currently 32 years , if you belong to general cast then you are not eligible for the exam now because your age is above the maximum age limit for the general cast .

    But if you are in not general cast then you have still chances for giving the exam .

    If you are in OBC cast then you have only one attempt left after that you will not eligible .

    Incorporate to above age limit you have to also fulfill the education qualification criteria like
    =>you done your graduation from any recognized university in any stream .

    So if you still eligible then start the preparation for the exam and give it .

    for more information visit the site www.upsc.gov.in.

    good luck

    the age limit to apply for the civil services examination is 21-30 years .
    so you can not apply for this exam as you have exceeded the age limit for this exam.

    but if you are a OBC or sc/st category candidate then you can surely apply for this exam as
    there is an age relaxation of 3 years for the OBC category
    and for the sc/st category the age relaxation 5 years.

    also if you are an government employee then also you will be given an age relaxation of 5 years more
    for this examination .
    moreover the number of attempts remains the same apart from the age relaxation.

    Number of attempts

    4 attempts for general category
    7 attempts for OBC category
    no limit for SC/ST category

    For sc/st cast : 21-35 years .
