    Hey friend,

    Yeah you are eligible for applying for the NDA Exam next year after having completed +2 which satisfies the Education qualification needed for the exam and then you being 17 years of age this year and by next year you will be 18 years old at the time of you applying for the exam which also satisfies the Age limit which is framed for the NDA Exam,

    To be descriptive about those 2 criteria's they are that:

    >> If you want to join in Indian Army the Education qualification which you would need is that you need to have completed +2 from a recognized school board of education with a fair percentage .

    >> And in the case of you joining in Indian Navy or Air Force you need to have completed +2 with Physics and Mathematics as subjects in order to be eligible.

    >> The age limit for the exam is that the candidate must have 16 1/2-19 years of age.


    If you satisfy these crtieria's then you are eligible along with:

    >> You need to have a Citizenship in India

    >> The Candidate appearing for the NDA Exam must be a Unmarried male candidate as per the Martial Status framed for the NDA exam

    >> The candidate appearing for the exam must be Physically fit as it is very important.

    Dear friend,

    You are eligible to appear the NDA examination.

    You have 12th passed from recognized board.

    You are within the age limit of 16- 19.5.

    What that matters is the clearing of the NDA exam and your physical parameters.

    You can check that in the official website so that you may verify whether you have the required Height,weight eyesight according to your age at that time.

    Prepare well for the exam.

    you could have applied this year itself.......nevetheless, you can easily apply for the nda next year because you are just 17 and maximum age limit to apply for NDA is 19 years.....
    the eligibility conditions for nda are
    age limit 16.5 to 19 years
