    dear aspirant,


    No dear you can't apply for IES exam in 2014. because according to eligibility criteria for IES you must have attained 21 years of age on 1 January of the year of exam.

    For IES(Indian Engineering Services) exam you must have engineering degree in any discipline.

    Indian Engineering Services exam is conducted by UPSC every year. But you are required to give the papers in any one of the following four streams.
    Civil Engineering
    Electrical Engineering
    Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering
    Mechanical Engineering



    for appearing in exam you have to fulfill some other requirement like:


    >>Engineering degree in any discipline from recognized college or university

    >>your age must be within 21 years to 30 years . there is relaxation in upper age limit upto 3 years for OBC and 5 years for SC/ST candidates.


    UPSC also provide the facility to apply for the exam online on following official link of UPSC:

    Good Luck......

    hi


    unless you are not completely 21 years of age at the time of filling up the form, you are not allowed to give the IES exam.
    For giving the IES exam, you need to be a graduate in mechanical/electrical/ECE/civil engineering
    And your age should be in between 21-30 years of age

    your age should be 21 year on 1 january.
    as age limit is 21 - 30.
    and you should be graduated from any of the well know engineering college.

    No,you cannot apply for IES entrance .Since your age must have crossed 21 years.And so you are not eligible. You can try next year.And you have more then enough time to prepare and give it next year as competition is very tough.But I don't believe you because IES can be given only after B.tech in core field .And students nearly crosses 21 years since it is a B.tech course.And so I say if you have completed engineering with core subjects then only you can give the entrance.

    The criteria for age is that you should be 21 on 1st august of the exam year to be eligible for the exam.As you are not completing 21,you will not be eligible.It is good that you will get a spare year without losing your age.In fact you will not be eligible for any engineering vacancy in govt sector as the minimum age is asked for 21year.You can only apply for CDS and AFCAT which allows lower age than 21.Till that time prepare well and if you are placed in campus selection then it will be an added advantage.All the best
