If you attend an interview this year, they expect you to join this y ear itself. They will not hold the position for the next 2-3 years until you complete your PG. The position has been opened for a vacancy to be filled now. It cannot hold for the next 2-3 years. If you want to complete your PG and come back, you will have to reapply and then based on the position available, you get a designation. Now there is a feasibility where in Candidates, join the service and then take leave to pursue higher studies. They can come back and join the position once they complete the course.
As per my knowledge , it is the 10th and 12th class marksheet that matters when you apply for exams. You are asked your name, yours father's name, you DOB as per your class 10th marksheet. It is specifically mentioned in the application forms. So you don't need to worry about this. Your 10th class marksheet is the proof of your DOB and other details. You will not face any problems.
All the best
You can appear for this exam once you’re done with MBBS. On clearing it, you can expect to live a comfortable and contented life and possibly even a lucrative career later on, with a lot of perks. You will be posted to any branch of Indian Govt. like the Railways , or as General Duty Doctors and at many other posts.
Now, the catch. You might find it very difficult to study further while working, as you may not have the luxury of time to prepare for a PG course and work simultaneously ( although a three government service makes you eligible for a post grad seat through the In-service quota).
The pay varies from post to post; A post higher up would fetch you more than Rs. 80,000 ,whereas a medical officer may only earn around Rs 45,000.
