Age Limit for Civil Service Examination
At present, no proposal to reduce the upper age limit and number of attempts in Civil Service Examination is under consideration of the Government.
Several representations have been received from various quarters on issues concerning the Scheme of Civil Service Examination (CSE). After due consideration, the Central Government has decided that in the Paper-II of Civil Services (Preliminary) Examination, the marks of question-section on “English language comprehension skills” are not to be included for gradation or merit, in the CSE 2014. It has also been decided that candidates who appeared in CSE 2011 would be given one more attempt in CSE 2015.
This was stated by the Minister of State for Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions, Dr. Jitendra Singh in a written reply to Shri B. Vinod Kumar and others in the Lok Sabha today.
