Default Re: Two Additional Attempts for IAS

Yes, you are right. Candidates for the civil services exam can now make two additional attempts at clearing the prestigious exam.

The Civil Service Examinations is conducted for the selection of officers in:

Indian Administrative Service (IAS)
Indian Police Service (IPS)
Indian Foreign Service (IFS)

The examinations are conducted in three levels:

1. Preliminary
2. Mains
3. Interview

Candidates shall be permitted six attempts (two more than earlier four) for Civil Services Examination.

The upper age limit is also relaxable upto a maximum of five years.

The upper age limit turns out to be:

General = 32,
OBC = 35,

This year UPSC Preliminary Civil Services Examination 2015 will commence on 23rd August.
