    Friend as per your query it transpire that today you are 31years of age due to this reason you can not sit for IPS entrance examination from the next time.Because you have crossed the IPS eligibility limit.Normally a General Category candidate can appear IPS entrance exam 4 times within the age of 30 years.IPS AGE Eligibility: General: 21-30 years, OBC: 21-33 years. S/C S/T: 21-35 years.PWD: 21-40 years.As you belong to General Category yourlimit of appearing IPS exam is 30 years, you are 31 so that you are not eligible for next IPS exam.

    Thank You,
