    Re: Am I eligible for joining having less than 60% in 12th?

    See , your 12th percentage doesnt show that much impact for you in getting a job in Defence services .


    Actually , your B.tech percentage is Good . You no need to bother about your Percentage in 10th , 12th . You can apply for Officer level posts in Defence services

    -) You can apply for the PERMANENT SERVICE COMMISSION OFFICER in INDIAN NAVY
    Age should be in between 19-25 years for the Post .


    -) You can apply for the TGC Scheme in Army
    TGC scheme = Technical General Course
    Age should be in between 20-27 years
    Generally , for the TGC Course , the candidate should have secured a minimum of 60% in B.tech . So , as you have secured 65% in B.tech , you can apply for the TGC Course



    -) You can apply for the AFCAT exam to join Airforce
    Generally , The AFCAT exam consists of
    1) Technical Branch ,
    For the Technical branch , age should be in between 18-28 years only
    2) Flying branch ,
    For the Flying branch , age should be in between 19-23 years
    3) Ground duty branch ,

    The Ground duty branch includes ,

    Re: Am I eligible for joining having less than 60% in 12th?

    Friend, you have scored more than 60 % marks except in 12th standard in your whole academic qualification. While applying for CDS Examination, the marks scored less than sixty percent might create the problem. But if you are seriously interested to join Indian army, then you may join army as soldier clerk or soldier general duty in the open recruitment rallies. If your age is between 17.5-23 years, then you must apply. If you succeeded to get recruited in army, then you may go for officer ranks through commission through army college of cadet courses. Detailed information is available on www.joinindianarmy.nic.inWISH YOUR BRIGHT FUTURE

    Hey friend,

    There is nothing much to be regarded/to be regarded about the Percentage which is needed for joining in __________.

    I can't tell exactly the correct information which is needed for you as your question is incomplete as you have not mentioned for what Defence force you want to join in for which i can guide you entrance exams or any other procedures to be undertaken.

    The criteria's needed or whether you are eligible or not cannot be predicted with the qualification which you have mentioned in your question.

    So,be clear with the question which you are asking before posting it.

    Re: Am I eligible for joining having less than 60% in 12th?

    Hello

    Yes you are very much eligible for applying in any wings of defence.

    The minimum percentage that you need to have to apply in the defence sector is 60-65%,in the degree for which you are applying.
    The government sector only demand for the percentage in the degree,now in the software companies or some other MNC companies,the percentage demand is through out your academic career
    i,e in 10,10+2,in the degree,but there is no such issue in the government.So you are absolutely eligible for joining applying as your percentage is more than 60% in the degree course.

    4)TES(technical entry scheme)
    5)OTA(officer training academy)
    6)NCC special entry( if posses ncc certificate)
    7)DIRECT SSB INTERVIEW(service selection board.)

    friend only percentage does not the only requirement,you should also satisfy the physical and other required criteria=

    -age=minimum age 19 years and maximum is 25 years

    -qualification=graduate without any backlog

    -should be medically fit and fine

    -height=for men 157 cm and for women 153 cm.
