    You might get age relaxation being a defence personnel. You should not leave it before clearing the exam since otherwise you will not age relaxation as you are past the maximum age limit of 32 years.

i am 26. i have an mba from the kerala university, 2011. i have been working for a multi-national soft drink company as a marketing executive. i have been trying to appear for the civil services exam for about three years now — half-heartedly, i must add.

i know it’s a stupid question. but lemme ask, anyway. what should i do to motivate myself. i want to be in the IAS. also can you suggest me the best subjects i should go for. currently, i have indian history in mind. but, i am not a well read person. i would also like to take the IAS kracker coaching. but, i should be confident that i can make it. what should i do. can you help, pleeeeeeeeeease. Thanks.

    You are the best person to motivate yourself. If you aren’t sure why your want to get into the civil service, why bother preparing?
