    Re: Age limit of CDS-II for IMA?

    IMA stands for India Military Academy and to Join IMA you have to appear for the combined Defence services examination and it is one of the most competitive examinations for Defence. Lots of candidates appeared for this examination every year and this examination is conducted for the selection of candidates in these academy namely.

    -->> Indian Military Academy
    -->> Officer's Training Academy
    -->> Naval Academy
    -->> Air force Academy.

    You can apply for IMA, only if you have completed your graduation in any discipline from a recognised University. You must have attained the age of 19 years and not more than 24 years and as per your Date of Birth, you are not eligible for IMA, because you have attained the age of 25 years.

    As per your Date of Birth you are also not eligible for OTA Academy because only candidates (married or unmarried) born not earlier than 2nd July, 1988 and you are born earlier than July 1988. So thats the reason you are not eligible for CDS Examination.

    You have only the option to apply for the Air force common admission test, only if you have scored more than 60% marks in your Graduation. Those who have scored more than 60% marks are eligible to Join Flying Branch, Technical Branch and Ground duty Branch of Indian Air force. But you can only apply for Technical Branch as per your age, for Technical Branch your age should between 18 to 28 years and you must have completed your graduation in mechanical or Electronics.

    You have crossed your age, so it is very tough for you to Join Defence. You can apply for University entry scheme if you are pre-final year candidate. So CDS is not for you because you are not fulfill the age eligibility for more details you can check official website of UPSC.

    Re: Age limit of CDS-II for IMA?

    Hello my friend ,
    It is very sad that you are not eligible for applying the CDS - II examination of the year 2012 .
    This is because you are not eligible for applying the CDS - II examination based on your age criteria .
    your age is above above 24 years now and you are even non - eligible for applying the OTA through the CDS
    Examination
    .

    The age criteria for applying the CDS Examination to enter the IMA is that your age should be between
    19 to 24 years . And since you are not 24 years old and are aged above 24 years so you are non - eligible for applying the
    CDS - II Examination this year and after this year .

    Re: Age limit of CDS-II for IMA?

    Hello

    The criteria for both the CDS in a year is the same,there is no difference in the criteria.The exam is conducted for entry in the defence section then there is no reason why the criteria will be different.

    The CDS is for the graduates candidates,it is a exam that is conducted by the UPSC for the entry in the defence for the graduate candidates.
    The IMA(Indian Military Academy) is a academy where the cadets are trained for the army wing.

    In order to apply for the IMA,you have to be graduate in any stream and most important thing is that your age must be between 19 to 24 years(at the time of commencement of the course).

    Yes the course takes 1 year time to start,hence it is necessary that when you apply for the exam your age must be between 18 to 23 years,si that when the course starts you remain within the criteria,as it specifically mentioned that the age must be at the time when the course is due to commence.

    Your current age is 25 years,hence you are not applicable for IMA.

    the CDS conducts exam for entry in the all three wings of the defence,like through IMA you can enter in the army,similarly through NA(Naval Academy) you can enter in the navy,AFA(Air force Academy) you can enter in the air force.

    There is one more entry in the army that is through OTA(Officers Training Academy).

    But for NA the age limit is 19 to 22 years,for AFA the age limit is 19 to 23 years,for OTA the age limit is 19 to 25 years and all are at the time of commencement of the course.

    Hence you are not eligible for the CDSE any more.
