    Hi Aspirant,


    Yes friend, UPSC confined the number of attempts for UPSC Civil Service exam and Indian Engineering Service exam.

    Limit of attempt vary as per reserve category.


    Number of attempts

    4 attempts for General Candidates

    7 attempts for OBC candidates

    No limit for SC/ST candidates




    A general Candidate can attempt only 4 times for CSE and IES exam.

    In such condition candidates should have good preparation and highly confident and after that should be appear in CSE and IES exam.

    Donít waste your attempts.

    First prepare two or three years, give the exam.



    Best of LuckÖ
