    Dear,
    The UPSC demands the qualification as to pass the bachelors degree at any recognized university. There is no restriction of percentages in the qualifying examination. The age limit is within 21-30years. The age relaxation is 03years for OBc and o5years for SC/ST candidates. There is only 04 chances for the general candidates and 07 chances for the OBC candidates and unlimited chances for SC/ST candidates. The most important thing for the preparation is the well-planned proper time table. A proper time management will give you the sure success. The books for the preliminary examination is TataMcgrawhill's General Study. The books for the optional paper should be chosen after choosing of the optional subjects. To know more details please visit www.upsc.gov.in Thanks..........

    Dear Aspiraint

    In order to appear in civil service examination thier are two main things AGE and Qualification
    In case of general candidate the age must between 21 to 30years
    and he /she must be graduate from recognized university percentage has no barrier in these examination
    and also there are only 4 attempts for general candidate
    so if above criteria is fulling you qualification and age you can apply for the examination
    for cracking the prelimnary examination you have to give time for preaperation as well as be paitent
    Best of Luck
