    Dear Aspirant

    First you have to be graduate from any recognized university i.e minimum educational qualification for writing civil service examination.
    Please note that minimum qualifying age is 21 years and maximum age limit is 30 years.Upper age limit is relaxed by 5 years for SC/ST and 3 years for OBC.
    Yes even after completing your phd if you do not cross the age limit barrier you may apply for UPSC examination.

    Re: What are the exact age limits for UPSC exams?

    It is wrong that age limit for IAS exam is 20-25 years.

    The exact age limit for IAS exam is:

    Minimum 21 years for all candidates.

    Maximum: 30 years for General.

    Maximum: 33 years for OBC.

    Maximum: 35 years for SC and ST.

    The age will be counted on 1st of August of the notification publishment year.

    So from the above age criteria it is proved that a graduate student get ample chances to sit in IAS exam after completing graduation.

    If you are asking about UPSC Civil services exam then the age limit is 21-30years for General category,21-33years for OBC and 21-35 for SC/ST category.You can complete your Ph.D if you wish to but keep continuing your preparation simultaneously alongwith your Ph.D so that you do not lose any year after Ph.D. Several candidates qualifying in the Civil services exam are actually Ph.D Holders.Actually higher studies gives you the cushion of preparation without losing or wasting time and also it enhances your knowledge about the subject you choose for Mains.
