  • Sir, Is this true that upsc decreased age limit for civil service?

    - asked by on

    1 Answer

    No final decisions have come up regarding this isssue. This issue was in consideration under UPA government but after the shift in government no final decision has come up. It was proposed that the age limit must be reduced from 32 to 26 years considering the fact that the person completes graduation at an average age of 21 years and has 5 years in hand to clear the examination. However, no final wording is yet released and we suggest that you wait for the coming notification and check out the age limits then.

    To appear in IAS the minimum eligibility is graduation, so you can appear in IAS without a postgraduate degree. However, to secure your career, it is good to pursue post graduation along with your preparation for IAS examination.

  • I want to prepare before the exams and now I have passed class X . What should I do?

    - asked by on

    1 Answer

    IAS examination at the earliest can be given in the final year of your bachelor's course, however if you want to start at this age it is considered as the best option. You have ample time for self-study, so try to cover all NCERTs class 6 to 12 (Science and Social Science). Practice a lot of mental ability and numerical ability questions. Do a thorough reading of the newspapers specifically the editorial section. You can also think about choosing the optional and start working on that optional as per the syllabus.
