    Re: At what age one can apply for IAS Entrance Examination?

    For Indian Administrative Services (IAS) under UPSC (Union Public Services Commission) exams, there are certain eligibility critirea you should keep in mind: The age limit for GEN category candidates is 21years to 30 years of age.3 tears relaxation is provided for OBC candidates and 5 year relaxation is provided to SC/ST category candidates. Also you should have the degree of the graduate course from a recognized University you pursued or you should be in the final year of your degree course to appear for the examination. The number of attempts for UPSC exams for GEN category is 4 and the for OBC and SC/ST category candidates is 7 and unlimited respectively. Once eligible, you will have to pass a 3 phase exam. First is the aptitude test. Second is the main exam including subjects from comprehensive English, mathematics, statistics, geography, history, psychology, etc. and then you will have to appear for a personal interview. This is the procedure to pursue IAS.
    all the best!!
