    Hi

    Yes my dear you are eligible for nda exams with your diploma.As you must knew that nda demands 10+2 with pcm or equivalent.

    So your diploma is equivalent to 10+2 also.So you are eligible for nda exams after your diploma and in the last year of your diploma

    also.But do remember that age limit is only b/w 16.5 to 19.So do concern about your age.Wish you all the best for your carrier.

    Re: Am I eligible for NDA after completion of Diploma Engineering?

    Friend, required qualification for NDA Examination is only passed in 10+2. If you done the diploma in engineering after 12th and presently you are in the range of age 16.5-19 years, then you will certainly eligible for NDA Examination.If you complete the diploma in engineering directly after 10th without undergoing through 12th standard, then you will not be allowed to appear in NDA Examination because required basic qualification is intermediate.Other basic requirements are: -- Indian citizenship. -- Sex/gender must be male. -- Marital status should be unmarried. -- Physical fitness is most essential.WISH YOUR BRIGHT FUTURE

    Re: Am I eligible for NDA after completion of Diploma Engineering?

    Dear Friend,

    I am sorry to say that being a diploma student you can't apply for the NDA exam. As the mandatory requirement in order to apply for NDA exam is that one should have passed his Senior Secondary Level that is 12th class. So you can't apply for NDA exam.

    Regards...

    Re: Am I eligible for NDA after completion of Diploma Engineering?

    Hello

    YES YOU ARE ELIGIBLE FOR APPLYING IN THE NDA EXAM.

    NDA is a combined entry for air force,navy and army.You need to have passed 10+2 or any other equivalent exam to 10+2(Diploma) to apply for NDA.But you must have physics and maths in 10+2 for applying in navy and air force and with any stream for army.

    Age Limit is 16.5 to 19 years(at the time of commencement of the course).
    Now there is no issues regarding your qualification,but as you are in 1st year of diploma age is 16 years ,then by the you complete your diploma ,you will be of 18 years.Now pay attention,actually it is necessary to apply for the exam when your age is one year as extra,like apply when your age is between 15.5 to 18 years,as it takes 1 year time to complete all the process of selection and start the course,hence your age will be well within 16.5 to 19 years(at the time of commencement of the course).

    The final year students are also applicable for applying,that means you can apply for NDA being in your 3rd year.

    Re: Am I eligible for NDA after completion of Diploma Engineering?

    Hello my dear Friend


    Definitely the Answer will be " NO " since Diploma students are not eligible to apply for NDA

    The reason behind the issue is it only Allows the students completes the 12 th with Minimum percentage of marks from a Recognized university

    NDA offers Three wings Namely

    <> Indian Army

    <> Indian Navy

    <> Indian Air force


    If you want to join in to the Indian Navy and Indian Air force you must complete the 12th with PCM subjects

    Otherwise you will not be allowed to enter in to the Above Two wings

    The Age should be in between 16.5 to 19 years

    Final year students are not eligible to apply

    Only Male Unmarried candidates are Eligible to apply for NDA

    So you can try to check it once


    Or else you can have a Another chance to write a TES exam to enter in to the Indian Army and Indian Navy

    But you have to score Minimum 70% of marks in your 12 thin PCM subjects



    That is all

    Hope you will get the Required information


    Good luck
