    Dear friend,

    Successful candidates are called for an Interview after you qualify in both the exams.

    Eligibility for Civil services exam:-

    Graduation is required with 1st or 2nd division from a recognized University.

    Final year appearing candidates can also give the exam.

    Any stream students can appear for the exam.

    AGE LIMIT:-

    It is 21 to 30 yrs for General category.

    There is an upper age limit relaxation given in case of reserved categories;

    For SC/ST - 5 yrs.

    For OBC - 3 yrs

    For PH - 10 yrs.


    NUMBER OF ATTEMPTS:-


    It is 4 in case of GENERAL.

    OBC has 7 number of attempts.

    SC/ST have unlimited no. of attempts till they attain the age of 35 yrs.

    For PH candidates same no. of attempts is there according to which they fall in the following category.
