    Re: Can a commerce student apply for Indian Navy or Air Force?

    See , on the basis of 12th one cannot join the navy and air-force if belonging to commerce stream.

    But on the basis of graduation one can do so.


    As you are a BBA candidate you can join the two wings as follows-

    Air-Focre-

    >>>You can join the Airforce through the AFCAT exam.

    >>>You can only join the Ground duty branch of the air-force.

    >>>You can get a job in the logistics department and the Administration department in the ground duty branch.

    >>>You should be below the age of 23 for ground duty branch jobs.

    >>>You will also need to have minimum 60% marks in graduation.




    Navy-

    You can join nay by two ways-

    >>>First is through permanent commission(logistics department)

    >>>second is by Short service commission(logistics department)


    >>>For both the schemes you need to be between 19.5 to 25 years of age.

    >>>you will also require minimum 60% aggregate in graduation.


    GOOD LUCK

    Dear friend,

    The entry for a graduate is CDS.

    But as you are interested in Navy and Airforce,so let me tell you that commerce people are not allowed in Airforce and Navy.

    You can apply for Army.

    So apply for it.

    The eligibility criteria is:


    Age: 19 to 24 yrrs

    Qualification should be degree in any stream for Army

    So all the best

    Re: Can a commerce student apply for Indian Navy or Air Force?

    Being a commerce student,

    and now after your graduation,
    1. you will have to take CDSE exam,
    Any graduate is eligible for army, air force or navy by this.
    the exam concsisits of general ability, maths and english.


    2. Also, you can take AFCAT (air force common admission test), the exam consists oof numerical ability, reasoning/aptitude, english, and current affairs.
    it is also conducted twice a year.
    but make sure:: You can not join flying branch because it requires physics+maths at class 12 and you can not join technical because only specific engineering branch (aeronautical) are eligibgle. so you can only apply for ground duty (logistics) branch.

    3. Also, you can join indian navy by taking CDSE or by UES (univeristy entry scheme).
    but here even, you can not join pilot or observer branch, you can go for general services branch

    Re: Can a commerce student apply for Indian Navy or Air Force?

    Hi

    I am really sorry to say that NO COMMERCE STUDENT can apply for the Navy/Air Force. However you will be happy to know that Commerce students are Eligible for the Indian Army/Indian Military Academy.

    Yes, you may apply for the NDA Examination which is the National Defense Academy. This is conducted by the UPSC (Union Public Service Commission) twice every year in the month of April and August.
    Your age should be within 16.5 -19 years in the year of applying and you should be an unmarried male Indian Citizen.
    Also you must be a minimum 12th pass in ANY stream (Army) from a recognized school or other operating state boards.

    Now physical and mental fitness is also a must to apply in this exam. Once you clear the written test, then you will be called for the Physical Examination and then the SSB Interview.
    If you clear it all, then you will be sent for the 1 year long training when you will be trained completely according to the Army standard. This is usually very tough and many candidates withdraw. But those who are really determined, they get through.

    After which you will be placed in some part of the country having some posts and some boys under you.

    For any more information, Please Click Here

    This year the NDA 1 and NDA 2 both are over, so you cannot apply anymore. However if you have attempts left, please try next year.

    All the best

    REGARDS
