    Dear,
    The UPSC conducts the All-India open competitive examination every year. But you didn't mention the name of the examination. Generally the age limit is 21-30.The upper age limit is for OBC is 3years, for SC/ST is 5years. So If you are in the reserved category, then you must get the chances to appear the examination. Best of Luck

    Hi dear

    Your age for the eligibility criteria is decided on the basis of a reference date.

    The reference date for the Civil Services Exam is 1st August of the year of Exam.

    dear please tell that for which exam you are going to apply in 2013,
    because upsc conducts various exams in every year and date of birth mentioned are different in every.

    but let me tell you if you belong to OBC or SC/ST then you can surely apply for any upsc exam in the year 2013,
    but if you belong to general category then you have to see the advertisement of the exam in which you want to apply.

    for more details you can go to the official website of upsc ,www.upsc.gov.in

    good luck

    Hi...friend

    see the age limit for attending UPSC exam is 30 years exactly

    so now you are having 29 years

    then you can attend for UPSC only once i.e.,end of the year

    but if you are bc candidate then relaxation will be upto 3 years

    if you are sc candidate then relaxation will be upto 5 years

    if you are general then no relaxation will be applied for you

    so this is the last chance utilize this opportunity

    if you crossed 30 without any age relaxation then

    you never be back or cant eligible to write UPSC

    first of all please check the upsc official website

    and read the notifications that belongs to your qualification

    then go head

    any way good luck..

    Hi friend,

    Hope that you are in good health and good state of mind.

    The age criteria for sitting in UPSC exam are as folloows:

    -->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 following 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.
    ->Defence Services personnel : upto a maximum of five years.


    So according to the above criteria,if you belong to any of the reserved category,only then you stand with a chance of sitting in the exam.
    If you belong to the General Category,then I'm sorry to say that you cannot sit in the exam!

    Bye
