    Re: Am I eligible to sit for NDA exam being 16.5 years old?

    Firstof all , you should know that after 10th , no one is eligible for the NDA exam . It shouldbe given only after 12th or when the candidate is in 12th .

    So, after 10th , you are not eligible for the NDA exam . Later , as you mentioned that you will go for 12th with Maths as one of your main subjects . So, while you are in 12th , you can apply for the exam . At that time , your age will also satisfies to apply for the NDA exam. And after completion of 12th also , you will have chance to apply for the exam .

    So, no need to worry about your Age . You can apply for the exam . Go for 12th with Maths .

    While you are in 12th , apply for the exam .

    Remember that , only UNMARRIED MALE candidates are eligible for the exam.


    The exam will conducts by Union Pubilc Service Commission of India , 2 times in every year .


    Selection process :-
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    1) Written exam

    2) SSB Interview , which is a 5 day process

    3) Medical Test




    Written exam consists of 2 papers

    Paper-1 : - Maths for 300 marks

    Paper-2 :- General Ability for 600 marks




    Remember , If you take PCM as your subjects in 12th , then you can join in either AIRFORCE or in NAVY or in ARMY .

    If you take Maths and other subjects apart from Physics and chemistry like Commerce , Economics , then you can only join in Army wings .




    Good luck
