    Hello,
    Age Limits For SCRA 2013
    A candidate must have attained the age of 17 years and must not have attained the age of 21 years on 1st January, 2013, i.e. he/she must have been born not earlier than 2nd January, 1992 and not later than 1st January, 1996

    So, you are not eligible for SCRA 2013
    You can try next time.
