    As mandated by Punjab Civil Services Rules 1976, as amended from time to time, the candidate should have attained the minimum age of 21 years So you are not eligible for PCS exam so have patient and prepare ur best after 21 u will be eligible for it.

    PCS stands for Punjab civil services which is conducted by PPSC (Punjab police service commission).
    Sorry to say that you are not eligible for this exam at this stage now as the age limit is 21-30 years.
    so i would suggest you to prepare very well for this exam for 2 years.You can take coaching to crack this exam as cracking this exam is not easy.
    Have a look at the eligibility criteria:
    1.You should have complete your graduation from a recognized university.
    2.You should have complete your matriculation with Punjabi as compulsory subject.
    Age limit:21-30 years
    Age relaxation for SC/ST candidates:5 years
    Age relaxation for Physically handicapped:10 years.
    I hope this information will help you!!
