    Re: At what age to apply for IAS officer post?

    Actually for giving IAS examination, you have to fulfill the criteria set by UPSC organization that is the candidate should be a resident of India, minimum eligibility is having bachelors degree with minimum 55%age and age limit is 21-30 years if you fulfill these demands then you can I.A.S examination so as to become a I.A.S officer . And one thing more be physically and mentally strong as you have to serve the nation. but in my opinion the criteria for the age-limit is the most important one.

    Re: At what age to apply for IAS officer post?

    For be an IAS officer you should give a civil service examination under UPSC. To apply for this post, you must have minimum 21 years old and not exceed maximum 30 years old. Only the OBC candidate have a relaxation of 3 years and SC/ST candidate have a of 5 years.If you are OBC/SC/ST, then you get a relaxation some years. Otherwise you have to apply without crossing your 30 age limit. But the most important thing is that you should have an graduation certificate with minimum 50% marks in the graduation to be eligible for this Entrance Examination.
