    The age limit to join in the defence is between 19 to 25 for the graduates. If you want to join in the air force the age limit is 19 to 23. So you have to attempt the CDS exam below the 23rd age.

    thanks

    Re: Age limit for applying in Defence Services?

    Dear aspirant ,

    You can apply for CDS exam after completing your B.Sc. . You are not eligible for NDA because your age is over 19 years so your next option is CDS exam after your Graduation.


    Your age must be 19 to 25 years to apply for CDS exam. There is no age relaxation in Defence services.


    You have to pass a objective type paper to be eligible for SSB interview which is the toughest interview .


    So start preparing from now onwards if you really want to become a officer in defence.


    BEST OF LUCK......
