Q. This is jai a regular follower of ur blog and appreciate ur effort . can u plz tell me how UPSC calculate the age of candidate …..My DOB is 11-08-1983 so upto which year i can appear in exam.
Ans. your age is calculated on 1st august of the given year.
i.e. suppose you’re general category then age limit for you is 21-30.
And for 2011′s exam your age on 1st August-2011, will be calculated.
(a) A candidate must have attained the age of 21 years and must not have attained the age of 30 years on 1st August, 2011, i.e. he must have been born not earlier than 2nd August, 1981 and not later than 1st August, 1990.
I think, You can give 3 trials from 2011,12,13 if you’re in general category.
for SC/ST/OBC /Handicap etc, there are relaxation in age limit, check the official notification for it.
