    Re: My age is 16.5 years. Can I give SCRA exam in 2013?

    Sorry you can't apply for SCRA exam as your age is less then 17.

    The age limit for the SCRA exam is 17 to 21 years.
    He should have passed 12th from the recognized university with science.
    Only unmarried male candidate is eligible for this exam.

    These are the eligibility criteria for SCRA exams so you can't apply for it before your age reaches 17 years.

    hi
    SCRA is the exam which is conducted by the upsc once in an year.
    But I am sorry to say but you are not eligible for giving the SCRA exam being the age of 16.5 years. The reason behind this is, you need to be a 12th class passed/appeared and your age should not be less than 17 years and not more than 21 years and as your age is less than 17 years therefore you are not eligible for giving this exam
