    Which is better for a commerce student joining NDA and then IMA or direct entry in IMA?

    dear sir

    my brother scored 85% in his class Xth. He is a commerce student. he is very much interested in a career in the armed forces, particularlt the army.

    He would like to jon the Indian Military academy or the national Defence Academy, in that order of preference.

    Please suggest if it would be better to join the NDA and then the IMA from there, or is direct entry to IMA is possible keeping in mind that he is a commerece student.

    What are the chances in the navy and the air force?


    thank you!

    Hello my dear friend.............

    As you are a commerce student you can only join Indian army

    because in order to join Indian navy and air force you have to complete your 10+2 with physics and mathematics paper

    As per my knowledge is concerned it is better to join NDA and then IMA

    NDA stands for national defense academy

    this exam is conducted by upsc twice a year

    then after that you can join IMA

    IMA stands for indian military academy

    the eligibility criteria for the NDA exam is:-

    you should be a citizen of india


    you should be free from any disease


    your eye sight should be 6/6 or 6/9


    you should have complete your 10+2 from recommended university


    your age should be in between 16.5-19


    your height should be in between 157cm


    you should be mentally physically strong

    the eligibility criteria for indian navy and air force is same but only science student can join this

    thank you and all the very best.................

    DEAR CANDIDATE,

    You can apply for the Indian army only you can not apply for the Indian air force or Indian navy because you have done your 12th from the commerce stream and for joining Indian navy or Indian air force only those candidates are applicable which has done there12th from science stream with PCM. after 12th you can apply for the NDA exam.The NDA exam is carried out by UPSC (Union Public Service Commission) twice a year namely NDA I and NDA II. If you have done 12th then you can apply for NDA exam which is carried out by UPSC twice a year for NDA exam your age should be in between 16.5 to 19 years.the candidate applying for NDA should be citizen of india. the applying candidate should be mentally and physically strong and free from any kind of disability. the candidates eye sight must be good that is 6/6. after clearing the NDA exam you can apply for IMA (Indian Military Academy).

    GOOD LUCK,

    Hello

    Let me tell you that IMA stands for Indian Military Academy.
    NDA is a entry for all three wings in defence for intermediate candidates.
    Through NDA one joins IMA-entry in army,AFA-entry in air force,NA-entry in navy.

    Hence nothing to worry as when somebody apples though NDA for army,he applies for IMA only.
    Study the notifications carefully ,to get all idea also visit the website of army

    Friend,

    According to me the best way you have to join by the CDS exam so if you want to join for the IMA then you have to apply for the CDS exam. By the CDS exam you will get the more opportunity compared to after the Intermediate ( NDA).

    So you have to first clear Graduation after the Graduation you have to apply for the CDS exam.

    >> Education Qualification
    The candidates have to clear Graduation and do not hold Nay Backlog in the Graduation

    >>Age limit
    19-24 years

    >> Martial Status and Nationality
    The candidates should be Unmarried and You should be Indian Citizen

    Vision Standards

    >> Myopia , Hyper myopia should not be more than 3.5D

    Uncorrected

    6/6 and 6/9 in other eye

    Corrected eye

    6/6 and 6/6 in both eyes


    The candidates should be free from the diseases and defects in the body. The Candidates have to hold all the physical requirements given in the Notification.

    Thank You
