    I asked this exact question in another thread ... this is the answer I got. Naruto is 12 at the start (and in the episodes shown on Cartoon Network) and 13 by the chunin exams. About 3 months continue before the Sasuke rescue arc (so he's 13 in the current anime fillers) and then 2.5 pass during the timeskip ... making Naruto currently 15.5 in the manga. Another interesting thing is Sakura is just a bit older than Sasuke whos older than Naruto (10/10 B-D) whos just older than Hinata (the youngest rookie)

    The problem is however: How can Naruto have failed the Academy exams thrice and still have the same age as Sasuke, Sakuta, Shikamaru etc?... Did all others fail as well (personally i dont think so)... At the start he is referred as 12 and in the manga he reaches 14-15 in Part B...

    Yes, I think you are right. But also get confused with the three times failed in the exams. I can only assume he failed regular exams, not the finals... Well, I guess Kage Bunshin can make people forgive you anything.

    Answer:

    Pre-timeskip before Chuunin Exam: 12
    Pre-timeskip during exam: 13

    Spoiler:
    15, after the timeskip.
