    Hi,
    Age limit for applying for CDS exam is 19-24years,since you have crossed the age limit you cannot apply for CDS
    If you were an engineering graduate you could have got direct entry as SSC entry
    Now it is really late for you to think about this,so I suggest you to do some other job of your interest
    Good luck!!!!
