    friend

    after 12Th you can not apply for the UPSE exam . still you have to complete your degree after

    that you can appear for the exam .

    you have lots of time with you ,so along with your normal study you start preparing for the UPSE exam .

    keep on reading the current affair and general knowledge books as well as other books .

    once you will finish your degree then you can apply for the exam .. keeping watch on the employment

    news newspaper for the information .




    Eligibility
    • your age should be 21 years and not more than 30 years .
    • you should have Degree from a recognised University or an equivalent qualification with good

      percentage .

    Hi friend

    I am sorry to say that you may not be presently eligible.
    But once you pass your under graduation from a recognised university you are eligible.

    There are several exams conducted by UPSC like

    >Indian Administration Services (IAS)

    >Indian Police Services (IPS)

    >Indian Engineering Services (IES)

    For IAS and IPS you are eligible if you have a graduation in any discipline.
    But for IES you need an engineering degree in ECE ,EEE, MECH or CIVIL.
    For all these exams the age limit is between 21 and 30.
    There is a relaxation in age of 3 years for OBC and 5 years for SC/ST.

    So , after class 12 finish the corresponding graduation.
    Then you are eligible.

    ALL THE BEST

    Dear Friend,
    No you are not.
    Because you need to be 21+ in age.
    And need a degree from a recognized university.
    Since you have not met with this qualification,you are not eligible for applying to UPSC Exams.
    Wish you all the best.

    Hey friend,

    UPSC stands for Union Public Service Commission

    This is one of the Commission which handles the various entrance exams in India which may such as Defence service exam,Civil service exam,Engineering Exam,Etc.

    As you have asked whether you could write the UPSC exams,there are many UPSC exams but with your qualification you could only write one of the Defence service exam which is NDA

    NDA stands for National Defence Academy and this exam is conducted twice in a year.This exam is conducted for candidates to join in:

    • Indian Army.
    • Indian Navy
    • Indian Air force.


    For writing this exam you need to have certain eligibility conditions which may include such as:

    >> Candidate who is willing to apply for this exam must have a citizenship in India.

    >> Candidate must strictly be a unmarried male candidate.

    >> Candidate should have a age limit of 16 1/2-19 years.

    Re: Am I eligible for applying UPSC Exams after completing 12th?

    You cannot apply for Civil Services Exam conducted by UPSC as you do not fall into the eligible category of the aspirants.
    With just +2, one cannot appear for the exam.

    Atleast one has to have a bachelors degree in any discipline from a recognized college/university.

    Even students who are in their final year of the degree courses can also apply.

    Apart from this, one also needs to fulfill the age criterion, which says, aspirant belonging to open category should be in the age of 21-30 years.
    While there are relaxations for other minorities like 3 years for OBC candidates and 5 years for SC/ST candidates.

    Don't loose hope, you still have a good chance.
    Infact, you are getting some more years to brush up the necessary knowledge that is required for the exam.
    Mug up as much GK you can including current affairs, general awareness.

    All the best!!!

    Hi,

    No you are not eligible for applying to UPSC exams just after 12th.

    Instead you can apply for it after oing graduation.


    UPSC exams conduct IAS / IPS exams.

    For these exams -

    You should be a graduate in any discipline from a recognised university.

    Your age should be between 21 years to 30 years.

    So, you will have to first complete your graduation first, if you want to sit for UPSC exams.
