    after completing your engineering u can apply for UES in third year and TGC after completing your engineering.
    but as you mentioned that u use spectal of 3, so according to my knowledge they allow only up spectal upto 1-1.5 not more than that.
    so it will not be fissible for u

    Re: Am I eligible to join IMA after 2 years being 22 years old now?

    Yes Sir ,
    You can join the Indian Army . But only if you apply for the Indian Military Academy in your Prefinal year or in your final
    year of graduation .

    This is because you cannot apply for the CDS Examination or the UES Examinations after two years .
    The CDS Examination stands for the Common defence Service Examination and the UES Stands for the
    University Entry Scheme examination .

    The CDS Examination can be applies by a final year Engineering graduate and the UES examination can be
    applied by a prefinal year or in your final year graduate .

    To enter the Indian Military Academy through this examination you have to be an unmarried female candidate .
    The unmarried female candidate can also apply for the CDS Examination but they cannot join the IMA through it and
    can only join the OTA through this examination .
    The UES examination can be applied only by a unmarried male candidate .


    And also the UES examination can be applied by only those male candidates who are doing their Engineering graduation
    in an recognised institution of India and after passing their graduation they cannot apply for the UES examinations .

    You can apply for the CDS Examination only when you are in the final year of your graduation
    because after completing you engineering graduation in the year 2014 you will become non - eligible for
    the CDS Examinations to join the IMA .
    This is because your age will become 24 and you will not be eligible for applying the IMA through the CDS Examination .
    To join the IMA through the CDS Examination the age criteria is that your age should be between 19 to 25 years .
    To join the IMA through the UES Examination the age criteria is that Your age should be between 19 to 25 years if you are
    in the Final Year or Your age must be between 18 to 24 years if you are in the for Pre Final Year and should have been born
    between 2nd July to 1st July for July Course in correspondence to the date of applying the UES examination .

    The CDS Examinations and the UES examination can be applied by only the Indian Citizens or the
    refugee permanently settled in India .

    Now it's on you .

    Hey friend,

    To be eligible to join in IMA you need to write the entrance exam and the one which you need to write is the CDS Exam.There are certain framed criteri's which are to be satisfied in order to apply for the exam and you need to satisfy them all.

    The age limit needed for joining in IMA is that you need to have 19-24 years of age and as you have told that you are 22 years now and you need to join after 2 years then your age will coincide with the age limit needed so you will be eligible but you need to apply at the same year itself or else you will exceed the age limit needed making you ineligible for writing the exam.

    The other standards needed is that you need to be a citizen of India and must be a unmarried male candidate.The education qualification which you need to possess is that you need to have got a degree from a recognized university with a fair percentage in any discipline.Apart from this you need to be physically fit while appearing for the exam as it is most important.

    Physical Standards Needed:
