    Hello

    It is strange that you have completed your 10,10+2 and even 2 years of B.SC at a small age of 18 years,normally people takes minimum 20 years to complete their graduation,but you will be completing it at an early age of 19 years,well that is good ,but to be frank even if you complete your degree,you won't be able to apply for it even after completing it,your age does not allow you to do so.You must know well the eligibility criteria for applying in the civil services

    The eligibility criteria for applying in the most of the civil services is
    1)minimum qualification-graduation from any stream from any recognized university.
    2)There is no percentage bar for the candidates.
    3)Age limit-21 to 30 years for GC
    21 to 33 years for OBC
    21 to 35 years for SC/ST.
    and five year upper age relaxation for ex-service government service man
    and 10 year upper age relaxation for physically handicapped.

    So this are the criteria for applying in the civil services(most of the).You can see that even you become eligible as per your qualification is concerned but will not be able to apply because your age does not fulfill the criteria.

    Hello Dude ...


    No

    I AM REALLY REGRET TO SAY THIS YOU ARE NOT ELIGIBLE TO APPLY FOR THE " CIVIL SERVICES EXAM "


    Since you are

    <<>> 18 years old candidate

    <<>> Still in B.Sc Second years

    For the above reasons you are not eligible
    And IF YOU ARE REALLY INTERESTED YOU START PREPARING FOR IT ...

    But apply after Graduation ... or while pursuing final year

    And you must be an Indian Citizen



    ALL THE GOOD LUCK
