    Re: Can I appear for NDA exam to go for IMA?

    Dear chitubhai007, Ofcourse you can apply after the completion of class 12th as minimum qualification required is 12th in any stream to apply for indian army. And with physics and maths to apply for air force and navy. Minimum age to apply for NDA is 16.5 to 19 years of age. You need to take care that you should not involved in any kind of criminal activity otherwise you may be disqualified. You should be unmarried male. As girls are not eligible fot that. Citizenship of india is must to apply for NDA. Before applying to NDA you should make sure that you are physically and medically fit otherwise all your efforts will become a wastage. For selection in indian army you need to clear NDA examination which includes three steps:: Written objective type exam, SSB interview and medical examination. If you clear all of them then you will be guaranteed selected for indian army. For more details kindly log on to www.upsc.gov.in as it is conducted by upsc twice in a year. And also se the weekly employement newspsper regularly. Thank you. Have a great future ahead.

    Re: Can I appear for NDA exam to go for IMA?

    Friend, you can definitely join the Indian army through NDA Examination after 10+2 level. Humanitarian stream which you have taken in 12th standard will make you suitable only for army wing rather than airforce/navy wing. NDA Examination is advertised & held twice in a year by UPSC which is officially authorised for conducting this examination. For NDA Examination,you required to be intermediate or its equivalent. There is no any need of percentage marks in 10+2 level. You required only to be passed in 10+2 level. You should be unmarried. You should be compulsorily boy because girls are not authorised to apply. You should also be physically and medically fit.WISH YOUR BRIGHT FUTURE

    Re: Can I appear for NDA exam to go for IMA?

    hello,

    The answer to your question is YES. You can give NDA exam though you are from humanities stream but the problem for you will be that you have not done 11th and 12th syllabus of maths which is very imporatant if you want to crack NDA exam.
    also students of humanities and commerce should note that they can only be selected
    in army. nor air-force and neither navy.

    So if you want to join defence line you should join classes for maths which will help you a lot.
    thanx and good luck

    Re: Can I appear for NDA exam to go for IMA?

    hi

    yes you can go with your stream,there is nothing wrong. NDA EXAM if you planning to join indian army,then yes go ahead.as in indian army,thee is no specific subject required.

    NDA ELIGIBILITY=

    age=16.5-19 years
    educational qualification=12th passed in any stream for indian army
    for indian navy and air force,maths and physics as main subjects.

    height=minimum height for men=157cm
    must be mentally and physically strong.
    must be citizen of india
    must be unmarried

    ***if you are applying for army wing,it does not mean,the question does contain problems,it would have but you should practice problems .learn formulas related to maths and physics.

    as we know the NDA EXAM PATTERN=
    a)mathematics=330 marks
    b)general ability test=600 marks
    if you see the pattern majority of the objective type questions would be coming from the maths ,so don't neglect maths.

    good luck
