    Hello Friend,

    1- Yes, you are eligible to give UPSC exam provided you fulfill other eligibility criteria.

    Number of attempts:
    General - 4
    OBC - 7
    SC/ST - No limit

    Age Limits:
    General - 21 to 30 yrs
    OBC (non creamy layer) - 21 to 33 yrs
    SC/ST - 21 to 35 yrs


    2- If you study very very hard, there are 99% chances of getting in (1% for luck factor).
    3- There is absolutely NO weightage for XII and degree marks in UPSC exam.

    Thanks,
    goyalk

    No need to worry about your 12th marks the crietria for the UPSC exam is you have passed your graduation in any stream from recognized university.

    And of you really work hard for the exam then you are sure to crack it and also for your info need not worry about your marks in 12th as you get rank according to your performance in the upsc exam.

    The criteria for appearing in Civil Services Exam is :
    1. Nationality : Indian
    2. Academic qualification : Graduate in any stream from any recognized university.
    3. Age limits : 21-30 (OPEN), 21-33 (OBC), 21-35(sc/st).
    4. Attempts : OPEN-4 , OBC-7 ,SC/ST-9 .
    No such percentage criteria is given for applying for Civil Services Exam. So you are eligible as you are a graduate.
    No need to worry about your 12th marks. It wont be counted in UPSC.

    Dear Friend,

    Do not worry about that you are eligible for civil services examination , which is conducts by Union Public Service Commission once in every year.

    For that examination no need of 12th marks and also graduation marks.

    But it is compulsory that candidate must be passed his/her graduation from any recognized university.

    Candidate must be under 21-30 years.

    Good Luck...

    hey friend,
    If you wanna apply for this exam.
    Then i wanna tell you that 12th marks not count in upsc exam.
    But you graduation marks count in this exam.
    Your graduation marks should be 54% min. then you can apply for this exam .
    And you just got only 53% marks in your graduation year .
    SO you cann't apply for this exam .
    Sorry friend, but you can apply more other exams.
    I hope you understand what I'm saying.
    GOOD LUCK
