    Dear Friend,

    Sorry , to say that you are not eligible for IES exam.

    For that exam you should be graduate in engineering and also can apply in last year of engineering graduation.

    Your age must be under 21-30 years.

    IES stands for Indian Engineering Service , so only engineers are eligible for that exam.

    Number Of Attempts :

    General candidates has 4 attempts to apply where as BC candidates has 7 attempts and SC/ST candidates has no limit to apply for same.

    Good Luck....
