Numbers of attempts

The number of attempts a candidate can give the exam is limited as follows:
  • Four attempts for General category candidates and OBC category candidates under the Creamy layer
  • Seven attempts for OBC category candidates
  • To SCs/STs, there is no limit on the number of attempts.
  • more seat for st.
However these candidates are requested to bear in mind:
  1. An attempt at a Preliminary Examination shall be deemed to be an attempt at the Examination.
  2. If a candidate actually appears in any one paper in the Preliminary Examination, he/she shall be deemed to have made an attempt at the Examination.
  3. Notwithstanding the disqualification/cancellation of candidature, the fact of appearance of the candidate at the examination will count as an attempt.
  4. Candidates just applied but not appeared at the exam is not an attempt.

Vacancies and Selection

Generally the number of vacancies varies every year. In the preliminary examination, the number of candidate selected for the mains is 11 or 12 times the number of vacancies and in case of the main examination, the number of candidates selected for the interview is twice the number of vacancies. As per existing policies, reservation for SC/ST/OBC is applied to each level of the selection process. For example, if the number of vacancies in a given year is 1000, and 100,000 candidates appear for the preliminary examination; the top 11,000 or 12,000 scorers will be selected for the mains and similarly, out of those 12,000 only the top 2,000 scorers will be called for the interview subject to their respective reservation quota.
In 2006, around 400,000 candidates applied for fewer than 500 vacancies and around 7,500 got through the preliminary and appeared in the Mains exam. In 2010, 5,47,698 candidates appeared for the preliminary exam.
To secure a place in the highly sought after Indian Administrative Service (IAS), a candidate must secure a rank in the top 70, a success rate of around 0.025 percent.
The number of vacancies in 2011 was approximately 880.
