    Re: Am I eligible to join Army after passing 10th standard with 17 years of age?

    I am sorry to say that you are not eligible to make entry into Indian Army soon after completion of your 10th class. Because the minimum academic qualification with which a candidate can make entry into Indian Army is by completion of 12th class with any of the stream from a recognized institute.

    For this, the candidate has to crack NDA Exam which is going to be condudcted by UPSC twice a year.

    If the candidate has got through the written exam, he will be called for Interview. A mere qualifying in Interview, the candidate has to go through the medical test.

    After fulfilling physical requirements also, the candidate will be given admission to join in Indian Army.

    In order to be eligible for NDA Exam, one should be in the age group of 16 1/2 years to 19 years.

    Apart from this, one should be an unmarried male candidate to take up this exam.

    So, I suggest you to join in 12th class with any of the stream and take NDA Exam in the final year of your 12th class.

    If you have attempted NDA Exam in the final year of your 12th class, you should be able to show the proof of passing in 12th class when you appear for Interview.

    For updated information on this exam, you can visit
    http://www.upsc.gov.in/

    The competition for this exam is very high. So, better to join in good coaching institute for this exam and start preparing for this exam from the first year of your 10+2.

    Wish you all the best.

    Hello friend,

    Sorry to say that you are not eligible to join the Indian territorial army since the minimum educational qualification required is 10+2 which is mandatory for all the other defense organisations.Once you complete the 12th grade you can write the National defense exam conducted by Union public service commission twice in a year once in mid April and in mid August.It is only applicable for men which tells that you are not eligible,so i better recommend you to complete your graduation in any discipline with engineering preferred the most according to me where then you can write the Combined defense service exam also conducted by Union public service commission twice in a year once in February and in September.There is no percentage bar for this,you must be Indian citizen also must be unmarried.Must be aged between 20-28 years.The tests consists of written test,SSb or AFSB interview and finally a medical amd fitness check up according to procedure.Height must be minimum 157.5 cms for men and 152 cms for women,weight is correlated according to height ratio.Eyesight must be 6/6,6/36 and 6/9 for spectacles corrected vision.Binocular vision must be level 3.Color blind limit is CP-3.

    If you pass all this you can join the Indian army...

    ALL THE BEST!!

    Hi friend,

    The minimum qualification to join army is 12th pass.

    You are perfect according to your age.

    But your qualification is not perfect.

    So, Don't worry, try to complete graduation.

    You can join Army through CDS after the graduation.

    The maximum age to join army through CDS is 24.

    Regards

    Hi friend,
    Sorry to inform you that there is no entry to join Indian army after passing class 10th.
    The minimum qualification to give NDA is 10+2 pass.
    So, firstly you have to pass your 10+2 class.
    And also you can apply for TES entry if you pass your 10+2 class with minimum 70% agreegate of marks in PCM.

    BEST OF LUCK.

    No you are not eligilble right now, just focus on your studies now and keep up your performance like this only..
    firstly you should clear your class 10th exams then take PCM as your subjects in class 12th so that you have wider scopes to join the indian defence ..
    after class12th you can opt for engineering or other degrees.

    after graduation you can apply for the indian defence through
    CDSE : entrance exam conducted by UPSC twice a year . for further details visit http://www.upsc.gov.in . to enter in army,navy and airforce
    AFCAT: to enter in airforce in flying,ground,and technical branch
    DIRECT ENTRY: you can also apply for UES, SSC, TGC entry for direct SSB
    NCC: you can apply for direct entry by C certificate of NCC to short service commission
