    It Is Difficult For A Commerce Graduate For Joining Defense . Students Having B-Tech , B.E or Bsc Certificate Can Apply For Defense. For Joining Defense A student Must Have To Apply For These Exams - CDS Exam , AFCAT Exam And Direct SSB .
    All These Exams Are Held Twice An Year . You Can Get The Details About These Exams From These Sites - www.upscexam.com , www.upsc.gov.in , www.careerairforce.nic.in.

    Re: Can a commerce graduate apply for Army or Navy?

    My dear
    Yes it is possible to apply Indian Army but not possible to Indian Navy
    Why Because if You want join in Indian Navy you should have completed Graduation with at least one subject of Maths or physics or chemistry .
    So you can join in Indian Army.Why because to join in Indian army there is no conditions like above.Any Stream Graduation Can join in Indian Army.So you can join in Indian Army.
    So if you want join in Indian Army you should have given an entrance examination of CDS(combined defence service).This examination is conducting by Union Public Service Commission two times in a year.The age limit for this is 19-25 years.
    Your height should have 157 cms
    Your Eye vision should have 6/6 or 6/12.
    Your Chest should have 80 cms
    Good Luck

    Hello,

    For joining Navy or Air-force you must have studied physics and maths in 12th level. No such restrictions for Army.
    So if you are a commerce student then you cant have physics , so you are not eligible for Navy.
    You can join army by applying for CDS(Combined defence services)Exam
    The candidate's age should be
    IMA(21 to 24 yrs)
    OTA(21 to 25 yrs)
    Minimum height is 152cm.
    Indian citizen
    Unmarried
    Your Eye vision should have 6/6 or 6/12.

    So
    best of luck....

    Re: Can a commerce graduate apply for Army or Navy?

    YOU CAN NOT JOIN NAVY AS YOU ARE FROM COMMERCE STREAM BUT YOU CAN JOIN ARMY. YOU CAN APPLY FOR NDA EXAM.
    NDA IS CONDUCTED BY UPSC ...
    The candidates who have already completed 10+2 can apply for Navy BUT WITH PHYSICS & MATH SUBJECTS AS COMPULSORY SUBJECTS.


    This the minimum qualification to join.

    The maximum age limit to join navy is 22.

    One can get navy jobs through so many ways.

    1.NDA (Qualification-10+2)
    2.CDS (Qualification-graduation)
    3.UES (Qualification-graduation)

    Re: Can a commerce graduate apply for Army or Navy?

    Hello friend,
    According to my knowledge a commerce student cannot join the Indian navy or air force since it requires candidates to have completed 12th board with Physics,Chemistry and Maths as compulsory subjects.But Indian army allows candidates from other stream to join the forces.For NDA you must be aged between 16.5 to 19 years and you must have completed 12th board from any recognized college.Also for Combined defense service exam you can join under Army category,for this you must be aged between 19 to 24 years and you must have completed your graduation from any recognized college without percentage bar.

    First of all you must be a Indian citizen with valid documents and must be unmarried.You can also join under NCC special entry scheme,University entry scheme,Technical entry scheme etc

    Procedure for CDSE and NDA:

    *Written test
    *SSB or AFSB interview
    *Medical and fitness test.

    ALL THE BEST
