    Friend, it is very sorry to say that you are over-aged. At this juncture of age, you are not eligible for applying CDS Examination. Candidate can apply for the CDS Examination only upto the age of 25 years. At present, it is advised to you that you should venture you career in other government sectors by applying for examinations conducted by Staff Selection Commission (SSC), UPSC, Indian Railway, LIC, Public Undertakings etc.

    CDS eaxms are conducted for the below 4 wings
    >> Airforce
    >> Navy
    >>Indian Military Academy
    >> Oficers Training Academy

    Age to apply for these wings of the CDS exams is:
    >> IMA- Between 19- 24 years
    >> OTA Between 19- 25 years
    >> NAVY - Between 19- 22 years
    >> AIR FORCE - Between 19- 23 years

    Since you are already 26 years old, so you cannot apply for the CDS exams
