    Hello Dear Dude ...


    No worry

    You are absolutely eligible to apply for the U.P.S.C exams


    Because your age is still 25.. 26 years


    And as YOU ARE A OBC candidate you will be given AGE RELAXATION OF 3 YEARS

    And so the minimum age limit is 21 years

    And you can apply for until you get 33 years


    You must have studied a minimum of Graduation


    GOOD L
