    i cleared prelims for the 6th consecutive time this year.
    i am a disabled and my date of birth is 01.07.1975. this is my last attempt.
    i was never serious about civil services and not even appeared for mains for 3 times.
    now this year i wants to appear for the exam in telugu medium seriously. But my friends are advising me to drop stating that UPSC will not consider me because of my age.
