    Re: What is the perfect age to attempt UPSC exams?

    There are various exams conducted by upsc every year.
    All of the exams have different eligibility criteria and different purposes for recruitment.
    perfect age for upsc exams is after intermediate examinations......i.e age should be between 17 to 30 years..as candidate who has passed intermediate exam cn apply for nda and scra exam ..but if a candidate is interested in becoming I.A.S or IPS officer he/she must be a graduate .so according to dis perfect age is between 17 to 30.different exams conducted by UPSC have different criteria related to education & age .So you can prepare for any of the exams based on your interest & qualification.

    Re: What is the perfect age to attempt UPSC exams?

    Dear Friend

    I just donot understand what you want to say that is perfect age to appear for the UPSC examinations.Let me tell you that there is no perfect age to appear for the UPSC examinations.

    UPSC conducts large no of examinations every year and the age limitations for different examinations are different.

    The minimum age limit for which you can appear for any UPSC examinations is 16.5 years for the NDA examinations.the upper age limit is 19 years.

    Now coming to some other examinations:

    For civil services examinations the age limit is as below:




    Note: For engineering services examinations and Indian Forest services the age limitations are similar to civil services examinations.

    For combined defence services examinations.the age limitations:

    IMA:19-24 years

    INA:19-22 years

    OTA:19-25 years

    For central police force examinations,the age limit is 20 to 25 years.

    >>Relaxations are provided to obc and sc/st respectively.


    Hope the information helps you.

    all the best

    Hello my dear firend.
    The perfect age is nothing.
    UPSC bounded the age of candidate who are applying for the exam .
    A general candidate can attempt this exam in between 21-30 years having maximum 4 attempts.
    You must give this exam when you are fully confident that your preparation is sufficient to pass that exam.
    If you only fill the form and directly going for the exam without the preparation , then you loose you one chance which has highly importance.
    Thank you.

    * The age limit is 21 to 30 years...!

    * The perfect age I prefer is 21 itself...!

    * For that you must have started the preparation during your graduation itself....!

    * You can have other attempts also if you start early...!

    * Remember only a early bird catches its prey....!!

    Re: What is the perfect age to attempt UPSC exams?

    Dear Aspirant

    It is generally difficult to say what is the pefect age in order to appear for the examination.Although UPSC has kept 21 years age as a minimum age limit in order to appear for the examination but the maximum age limit has been fixed to 30 years.21 years you may consider it as we become adult at this stage.Besides this it is generally the mimimum age when you have completed our graduation.

    And the minimum educational qualification fixed by the commission is that you need to begraduate from a recognised university in any stream of education.You might havedone your graduation from Arts,Science,Engineering or whateveras encouraged students from any background to apply for the examination ifthey want to serve the country.So you cannot ssay perfect age for examniation
