    Hi,Iam sorry to say this you are not eligible for the defence services, because you are crossed the age limit.Being a 12th standard candidate can apply NDA exam, the age limits for this exam is 16.5 years to 19 years, and no age relaxation. So you are not eligible.

    Hello my friend ,
    At Present you are not eligible for any of the Indian Army examination , this is mainly because your age for the
    12th class male Science student to apply for the defence service Examination is over
    I Mean that you are no more eligible for applying the Indian Army services on the Basis of your 12th class merit .
    Now if you want to really join the Indian Army than you are eligible only for the post of soldier in the Indian army at present .

    SO Think about it .
    And if you do not want to join the Indian Army as a soldier than you must Go for a graduation degree and after completing it you can join the Indian Army as a cadre .

    SO Best of Luck .

    If you are 20 years old, you can not appear for the NDA exam to join the army. The minimum age limit to join the NDA exam is 19 years. So to appear the CDS exam you have to complete the CDS exam. to appear for this exam you have to complete the graduation.

    Dear friend,
    Since you have not completed your 12th at 20 years of age,you are not eligible to apply for NDA exam.The age limit for NDA exam is 16 1/2-19 years
    I advice you to complete your graduation with any science subject before the age of 24 years and apply for CDS exam to become an officer in the Indian army
    I am sorry to say that right now you are not eligible for NDA
    Wish you good luck!!

    For IAS, one has to go through civil services examination being conducted by UPSC (Union Public Service Commission).

    The selection procedure will be by
    -CSAT (Civil Services Aptitude Test)
    -Civil Services Main Examination
    -Interview

    In order to be eligible for this exam, one should have completed Graduation with any of the stream from a recognized university.

    Candidates who are pursuing final year of Graduation or candidates who have appeared for final year of Graduation course and waiting for the result can also apply for this exam.

    One should be in the age group of 21-30 years to be eligible for this exam.

    Relaxation is there in upper age limit upto 3 years for the candidates of OBC and upto 5 years for the candidates of SC/ST category.

    So,by next year, you can finish your Graduation and will attain an age of 21 years. So, you can appear for upcoming civil services examination which is going to be conducted on 20-05-2012

    Dear Friend,

    Presently you have crossed the age criteria for NDA entry, so you can't apply for Indian Army. But you can apply for Indian Army after your graduation. So go for your graduation and then apply for Indian Army.

    Hope it Helps...

    Dear

    The minimum age limit to join in the army is 19. And minimum qualification is +2. You have not completed the +2 with in the age of 19 so you are not eligible for the NDA to join in the army.

    Hi Aspirant

    With the intermediate qualification you are eligible to apply for NDA exam.


    But your age is over for NDA exam, so you donít satisfy the criteria of NDA exam.

    Now you need to apply for CDS (Combined Defense Service) exam.

    To apply for CDS exam you will have to satisfy minimum eligibility criteria.


    Qualification for CDS exam

    You should be graduated in any branch from recognized university or its equivalent.

    You must be qualified intermediate with physics and Math subject in order to join Navy and Air Force exam.

    Final year candidates can apply for CDS exam.

    You must be in age of 19 to 25 years.

    Age relaxation is not applicable.

    You must be Indian.


    To apply for CDS exam you will have to complete graduation with good marks.

    So friend after completion of Intermediate you should apply for graduation and complete your graduation without delay.

    You have not more attempt for CDS exam you can apply till the age of 25 years.

    Along with graduation you can continue the preparation of CDS exam.

    So that you could easily crack the CDS exam after graduation.


    Best of LuckÖ
