UPSC conducts Civil Service Examination. It is conducted every year.

The eligibility to appear in examination is that candidate must have passed bachelor degree from a recognised university.

The age limit is 21-32 years with relaxation for reserved category.

So, you are eligible to appear in examination after completion of bachelor degree.

The examination is conducted in three stages and after qualifying in all the stage will become eligible for final recruitment.

UPSC refers to Union Public Service Commission and as the name suggests same is a commission that conducts different examinations for recruitment as central government employees in various sectors. But, UPSC examination is basically used to refer to the Civil Services examination held for recruitment as administrative officers like IAS, IPS, IFS, etc. which might be the same in your case .

Yes, you are certainly eligible for UPSC ( Union Public Service Commission ) examination having 5 years gap in your academics after Class 12th if you satisfy other requirements as the gap within the academics, stream or academics and marks in any academics degree does not matter generally for UPSC examination.
