what is the difference between your real age and age by certification?

edited April 10 in Miscellaneous
I recently moved to ORN. Most people seem to be 25+ but during conversations i find out that they are just 21-23 age group.
So i am wondering either they are bluffing or simply telling the DOB by documents. I today met a 32+ (IMO) guy ; i asked if he has any attempts left. He said "why, I am only 24". Now this is frustrating for me. I am 24 now and already used 4 attempts.

  • My point is Maturity, level of understanding and Knowledge base improves by age. If any person has huge difference of say 3 to 6 yrs . doesnt he or she has upper hand ?

    Its not the actual age that matters, what matters is the years one has spent in UPSC prep.

    For example, a candidate may be 21/22 , but may have 5 years of exp in UPSC prep [ for example,Tina Dabi , who started full fledged prep with proper coaching in class 11 itself and when she reached the age of 22, she topped the exam]. On the other hand, a candidate may be 25/26 but he /she have just started the prep ( for example, numerous UPSC aspirants wo start prep after resigning from some job).

    In this case, the former is much more mature than the latter in terms of knowledge and approach and hence has the upper hand, though she is 3-4 years younger than the latter.

    If u r satisfied with my reply , do meet me in ORN. I live near Bikaner sweets. :)
  • Taking ur case, u r just 24 but has already given 4 attempts ( assuming u started prep at the age of 20 ) , and taking my case, I am 30 and have given 5 attempts ( started prep at 24 ).

    So, our maturity level in context of UPSC prep would most probably be similar despite the fact that I am 6 years older than you. This is because we both spent similar number of years in UPSC prep.

    I know a person, she is a girl, her real age is 25, but on certificate she is 17 only(I saw her certificate when she came to neighbor's xerox shop to get her documents photocopied.), not even eligible for bank exams now. She did her class 10th second time as earlier she couldn't score even 50 percentage in 10th and 12th from cbse board and was not able to pass 1st year of her BA even after 2 years. Later on, she took admission to one rural school and got real new birth certificate. From face, she looks like an aunty but on certificate she is 17 only, yet to complete her graduation, oh btw she scored 93 percentage in 10th, 95 in 12th. Abhi atleast 3 more years for graduation. By the time she 29, she will give her first attempt in upsc and technically she will be 21 lol :D
    Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.

    haan aisa bahut log karte hain, jo jeevan bhar exam dete rehna chahte hain , even at the real age of 50s.

    but, now its not possible, cz govt is now asking for Aadhar Card.

    Given her condition, she might get some clerical job or teacher job after lot of ragdampatti, but UPSC me aise logo ka success impossible hai.

    DNA test karke age pata karna chahiye ab govt ko.

    in CSE as per minimum age in 22 years one can complete 1st attempt in earliest possible scenario. so in 24 maximum 3 attempt is possible.
    He is guy with girls name trolling the thread .

    suppose age is 24 now so dob something in jan-feb 1993 .
    kab exam de payega wo cse 2014 ka ya 13 bhi likh lega :D
    so 2014 2015 and 2016 only 3 attempt .
    kisi logic se 4 attempt aur 24 yrs age hai toh bolo :D
  • cse 13 ka exam dene ke liye 1st jan 13 ko 21 yrs requirement tha as prelims was in may only.
  • @timepasss you are right. i wrote 3 attempts. woh raat 2:30 ke lagbhag thread banaya toh thoda sleepy ho rhi thi.. jab tak typo sudharna chaha tab tak editing option ke 6 minutes nikal chuke the. :D
