    Hi
    If you have the plans to appear in the upsc civil services examination and the indian engineering examination, then only you are eligible for giving the exam because in these 2 exams, the age limit for giving the exam is 21-30 years.
    Whereas if you want to appear for the NDA or CDS exam, then you are not eligible because for appearing in the NDA exam, the age limit is 16.5-19 years and that for the CDS is 19-24 years

    you are eligible for the communication according your age. if you complete the graduation in any stream from the recognized university that is approved by the ugc/aicet.
    then contumaciously you're eligible for the communication. the share of the marks isn't any matter for the communication.

    you're not eligible for the cds communication wherever the ordinance is twenty one to twenty five years, and no age relaxation for the reserve class

    UPSC conducts varied exams and ordinance is totally different
    in every case.You can apply to any or all exams to that you
    meet the Eligibility Criterion.
    Having a Graduation Degree from a UGC recognized University
    is must .
    you're eligible for several exams conducted by UPSC at the
    graduation level given your age of 26yrs. a number of the exams by UPSC ar Civil Services,Indian Engineering Services,
    scientist communication,Indian Forest services,etc. of these exams need Age limits between 20-30yrs normally class
    and relaxation of 3yrs to OBC and upto 5yrs for SC/ST candidates.
    therefore you're eligible for many of the exams Air Combat Command. to age expulsion solely few
    like CDS wherever ordinance is between 19-25yrs.

    if you belong to the OBC or the SC/ST category .
