    Hi friend,

    Hope you are in good health!

    See,according to the Eligibility Criteria-

    A candidate must have attained the age of 21 years and must not have attained the age of 30 years on 1st August, in the year of examination.

    The upper age limit prescribed above will be relaxable in the follwing cases:

    • Scheduled Caste or a Scheduled Tribe: upto a maximum of five years.
    • Other Backward Classes: upto a maximum of three years.
    • State of Jammu & Kashmir (Domiciled during the period from the 1st January, 1980 to 31st December, 1989): upto a maximum of five years.

    So if your age is below 30 years and if the college from where you did your graduation is recognised by UGC,then you can sit in the exam!
    It doesn't matter even if you have a gap of 3 years!


    Bye
