    Dear Guest,


    The Age limit of Special Class Railway Apprentices(SCRA) Exam conducted every year by UPSC Exam is 17-21 years on the prescribed date of the year of examination.

    Certain categories of persons are eligible for age relaxation.

    So, If you belong to General Category,then i am sorry to say that you are not eligible for because your present age is 22+.

    But if you belong to any one of the certain category i.e. sc/st/obc, then you are absolutely eligible for this Exam.



    THANKS.

    first of all let me remind you that SCRA examination is 12th based examination.
    for this examination the aspirants must be pass in 12th from a recognized board
    with PHYSICS CHEMISTRY MATHEMATICS as subjects .

    but unfortunately you can not apply for this examination
    right now as per your present age .your age now is about 23 years .
    but the required age limit to apply for the upsc SCRA examination is 17-21 years
    so you are not eligible to apply for this examination.
    and there is no age relaxation for the OBC or the SC/ST category
    as far as this examination is concerned .

    but don't loose your hope because there are many other examinations
    conducted by upsc that you can apply.
    after your graduation you can apply for the upsc examinations like
    civil services examination,combined defense services examination,combined police forces examination etc.
    for these examination you can apply even while pursuing the final year of your B.Sc course.
