    Re: How many attempts are allowed for general candidates in Civil Services?

    UPSC conducts the Civil Services Exam(CSE) every year.
    Recruitments
    are made to 24 services/posts like IAS,IPS,IFS,etc.
    It is one of the most competitive and toughest exam at the All India Level.

    Eligibility For CSE :

    Age Limit :
    General Category-21-30yrs on 1st August of the Year of Exam
    OBC-21-33yrs
    SC/ST-21-35yrs

    Educational Qualification :
    A graduation degree in any discipline from a UGC recognised University.
    Final year appearing/appeared candidates can also apply on provision.

    Attempts :
    General Category-4 Times
    OBC-7 Times
    SC/ST-Unlimited Times

    So number of attempts allowed for general category candidates in CSE is 4 Times.
    If a candidate applies for CSE and does not appear in any paper it is not counted as an attempt.
    But if a candidate appears in atleast one of the papers of the CSE it will be counted as an attempt.
    For eg:A candidate appears only in one paper of the prelims exam and does not appear in any other
    paper then it will be counted as an attempt.

    you can visit the FAQ section on the upsc website to clear your doubts.

    • Civil services examination is conducted by UPSC every year.
    • The UPSC has defined certain limit depening upon the category.
    • If you are from an general category, then only you have four attempts to clear examination.
    • If you are from an obc category, then you have only seven attempts to clear examination.
    • And there is no limit on the number of attempts if you are from an sc/st category.
    • In every attempt you need to satisfy the eligibility criteria , mainly the age limit which is from 21 years to 30 years.
    • You also need to have completed graduation.
