    Dear pal,
    • Number of attempts depend upon the category to which you belong to and you need to make use of the opportunity within the age limit corresponding to your category
    • For general category maximum of four attempts is provided to them if necessary one must make use within a period of 30 years of age. If you belong to general category them you can make the 2 attempts that is left for you.
    • For BC, MBC aspirants maximum of 7 attempts is provided within a age limit of 33. In such case you are left with 5 more attempts.
    • For SC , ST aspirants there is no restriction in the number of attempts so you can appear any number of times within age limit of 35 . The same holds good for physically challenged aspirants.
    • Attempting more number of times is of no use try to do well in the single attempt itself by preparing well for the exam.

    hi
    as your birth is of 1985, for the time being you have 2 more attempts left with you in the coming two years. Because as per the upsc rules, you can give the exam between the age limit of 21-30 years of age and the number of attempts offered are 4. As you have already used your 2 attempts earlier, you have 2 attempts left in the upcoming 2 years.
    Gud luck

    You have not mentioned your category.The number of attempts and age limit for different categories are listed below:
    General 21-30years-4 attempts
    OBC 21-33years-7attempts
    SC/ST 21-35years- Unlimited within the maximum age.
    So you can now calculate number of attempts based on your category

    • Your's age should be in between 21 years to 30 years.
