    Re: Am I eligible to join IMA at the age of 23 years after BCA?

    As you are doing your graduation in the field of BCA so you are eligible for entering in the IMA .
    The IMA here refers to Indian Military Academy and can be be applied by both male and the female candidates .
    Since you are BCA Graduate and a male candidate than you can enter the IMA
    Through the Following Examinations -:

    1. CDS ( Common defence Service ) examination .
    2. Graduate UPSC .
    3. Graduate non UPSC .

    The CDS Examination is conducted by the UPSC Government of Indian while the latter Examination
    is conducted by the Indian Army itself under the Indian Army entry scheme examinations .
    The Indian Army conducts the Graduate UPSC and the Graduate non UPSC once each year .
    While the UPSC Government conducts the CDS ( Common defence Service ) examination
    twice a year .

    The CDS Examination is also meant for the Female candidate but they cannot apply for the
    Indian Military Academy through these Examinations .
    While pursuing your in final year or after completing your BCA Graduation you can apply for the
    CDS Examination to enter in the IMA But your age should be between 19 to 24 years and you should be unmarried .

    For applying the Graduate UPSC Examination your age must be between 19 and 24 years before one month of which the course is due to commence .
    but you can apply for this examination only after completing your graduation in BCA from any recognised University .

    For applying the Graduate non UPSC Examination Your age must be between 19 and 25 years on 01 January of that year when the course is due to commence for April course and 01 Jul of that year when the course is due to commence for October course .
    but you can apply for this examination only after completing your graduation with 50% of marks or should be in the final year and should having a 2 Years service in NCC Senior Division Army .

    Thank you my friend and best of luck .
