What is the number of maximum attempts for different categories?

September 18, 2015

General category and OBC (creamy layer) category have a maximum of 4 attempts.
OBC (non creamy layer) have a maximum of 7 attempts.
For Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe category candidates there is no limit on the number of attempts till they attain the age of 35 years.
Students belonging to OBC/SC/ST can give the first 4 attempts as General category candidates (if they so desire) and thereafter they can avail the relaxation in the number of attempts by availing the category benefits.
