    Yes you can apply for the upsc exam when you will appear in your university final exam. You can fill the upsc form at www.upsconline.nic.in. You can start your preparation now. You have to face three exams in upsc, prelim, mains, Interview. In prelim exam you have to face two papers of objective types questions, each paper will be of 200 marks. In UPSC mains you have to face 9 papers in which you have to select three papers, one paper for Indian Language Paper and two papers from optional subjects. In optional subject you can choose any of paper related to Arts, Science, Commerce, Medicine etc like History, Sociology, Maths, Physics etc. But if you choose Arts subjects then you will be easily crack the exam. Best of luck.

    Dear friend

    Yes,you are eligible for the UPSC exams while pursuing your third year of B.sc since it is the final year of your course and according to the rules and regulations of UPSC anyone who has completed his bachelor's degree or in the final year of this bachelor's degree is eligible for this examination.

    However ,one thing should be kept in mind that third year b.tech students are not eligible for this exam because it is a four year undergraduate course,so you will be eligible in the fourth year.

    The other essential for this examinations:

    For all the examinations like Civil services examinations ,CDS,IES which is conducted by UPSC the age should be between 21-30 years for general category students.

    Examination pattern for civil services:



    Hope the information helps you

    all the best

    Hey there...

    Yes you can appear for the exam while pursuing 3rd year as this is your final year after which you complete you degree.
    But make sure that you have your certificates ready before the main exam.

    Below is the extract from the UPSC notification.

    Minimum Educational Qualifications:
    The candidate must hold a degree of any of Universities incorporated by an Act of the Central or State Legislature in India or other educational institutions established by an Act of Parliament or declared to be deemed as a University Under Section 3 of the University Grants Commission Act, 1956, or possess an equivalent qualification.

    Note I: Candidates who have appeared at an examination the passing of which would render them educationally qualified for the Commission's examination but have not been informed of the results as also the candidates who intend to appear at such a qualifying examination will also be eligible for admission to the Preliminary Examination. All candidates who are declared qualified by the Commission for taking the Civil Services (Main) Examination will be required to produce proof of passing the requisite examination with their application for the Main Examination failing which such candidates will not be admitted to the Main Examination.

    Cheers!!
