    Re: Am I eligible for defence after doing 12th with PCM? What is the physical criteria?

    DEAR.,
    Yes you are eligible for the defence jobs after completing 12th standard in PCM.,but you should have minimum 60% in PCM.
    The physical criteria's are:
    Height:Generally the minimum height for joining the military is 152 cm without shoes. Some jobs have more specific height requirements, for example, pilots must be between 163 cm and 193 cm tall with a maximum sitting height of 100 cm.
    Eye Sight:The eye sight needs to be a corrected 6/6. But, a Big BUT, it isn't always the case. A lot depends on the examiner, the doctor performing the medical examination. In any Military Hospital, the worst job for a doctor is medical fitness test, he hates doing it. So, he's always rude, bashing, and doesn't wanna pass you that easily. Sometimes they reject you for the slightest of the reasons.
    If you want more details go through website: www.upscexam.com



    ...GOOD LUCK...

    Dear Friend,
    Yes, You are eligible. You can appy for NDA and after facing written exam of NDA you must have to attend SSB and physical test.
    you can refer a book names ARIHANT NDA PREPARATION. This book is very famous for NDA preparation.But my suggestion is that you can go for a graduation course then try for CDS or short service commission to join the Defense.
    Good Luck
