No, it is not too late. The upper age limit for OBC candidates in Civil Services examination is 35 years, you are only 26 years. So, you are left with ample time to crack this examination which requires consistent effort along with dedication and determination.

Any graduate from a recognized university is eligible to apply for this exam exam. For OBC candidates there are nine attempt upto upper age limit.

How to start?

You can start working on your basic concepts of subjects like History, Civics, Geography, Economics from NCERT 6th to 10+2 class. It will take 40-50 days if you work hard 5-6 hours per day on these subjects, as there are 40 books overall. After completing these books, either you can join any coaching institute like Vajiram and Ravi IAS academy or ALS etc for better preparation.

You can also do self preparation through recommended books like Lakshmikant for Polity, Ramesh Singh for Economics, G.C Leong for Geography.

Work hard with consistency, this is key to success in this exam.

The age limit for Civil Services exam is:

1. General candidate: 21-32 years.

2. OBC candidate: 21-35 years.

3. SC/ST candidate: 21-37 years.

You are of 26 years only, so you have good time left with you to prepare and clear this exam. Bachelor's degree is minimum academic requirement.

There are three phase of this exam namely Preliminary exam, mains exam and interview.

You can start by reading basic NCERT or NIOS books for different social subjects like History, Geography, Civics and Economics.

No, its not late. You have sufficient time to prepare. But one thing you should keep in mind that it is very tough and hard to crack so hard labour is necessary.

Eligibility criteria:-

Candidate age should be 21-32 years.

Age relaxation is given to reserved category candidates.
