    Hi

    You can not apply for the Indian Navy being a arts student.


    In Indian Navy and Air Force the candidate must have physics and math subjects in 12th class i.e science stream in 12th class.

    Because these subjects are compulsory for these wings.

    You can apply only for the Indian Army.

    For this your age must lies in between 16.5-19 years and you must be Indian.

    Thank you....

    Hey friend,

    No you cannot apply for joining in Indian navy as you are not satisfying the Education qualificaiton for it as having completed +2 in Arts Stream which makes you ineligible.

    The needed Qualification for the exam is that the candidate must have completed +2 with Physics and Mathematics as subjects with a fair percentage and from a recognized school board of education in order to be eligible for joining in Indian navy with a minimum education qualification

    So,it is clear that you are ineligible for joining in Indian Navy with this qualification.

    But with the qualification of yours you can join in another Defence force of India which is the Indian Army.

    You can join in this force with a qualification of completed +2 in Arts stream.

    The other qualification to be satisied along with this is that you need to be a Citizen of India and the Martial Status for the exam is that the candidate must be a Unmarried Male candidate

    The age limit needed for the exam is that the candidate must have 16 1/2-19 years of age.The candidate appearing for the exam must be Physically fit while appearing for the exam

    Next NDA exams would be held on 11th August 2013Only Candidates born between 2nd July 1995 to 1st January 1998 can apply for this exams

    So, you can only aply for the Army wing of the NDA exams and not the Navy wing

    You should be in age of 16.5 to 19 years.

    No age relaxation is applicable.

    You must be the citizen of India.

    Re: Can I apply for Indian Navy or not being 12th Arts?

    No my friend,

    You can not apply for Indian Navy
    because you have not passed your 12th class yet.
    So to apply for Indian Navy,you must have completed your 12th with more than 50% marks
    under some recognized university or board with science stream.

    12th with arts students are not eligible for Indian Navy
    because only the science students are eligible for it.
    And if you are the science student
    then you can apply for Indian Navy with an entrance exam.

    redbutton-no-hi.jpg

    The entrance exam for which you have to go is NDA.
    NDA stands for National Defense Academy and
    it is an entrance exam which is used to enter into the field of civil services.
    As there are three types of civil services that are comes under NDA:

    1.Indian Navy
    2.Indian Air Force
    3.Indian Military


    You must be an eligible for it.So check the eligibility criteria for it.The eligibility criteria for NDA is:

    1.You must be an Indian.
    2.Your age should lies between 16.5 to 19 years.
    3.Your eye sight should be correct i.e.6/6.
    4.You must be physically fit.
    5.Girls are not eligible for it.
    6.Only unmarried males are eligible for it.


    Without completion of 12th,you can not apply for Indian Navy so my friend,you must have completed your 12th to apply for any of the civil services.First complete your 12th then after go for it.


    Thank u!!

    DEAR FRIEND..

    You can not apply for Navy because mathematics is compulsory subject in
    12th class order to join Navy through NDA or CDS or by any other examination.

    So you have no option left in the field of Indian Navy because you have
    completed your 12th with arts and in arts mathematics is not a subject.

    Re: Can I apply for Indian Navy or not being 12th Arts?

    Well you can't because you have to write NDA exam for joining in Navy but only 12th (PCM) students are only allowed to write this exam.

    NDA stands for National Defence Academy.

    This exam is conducted by UPSC (Union Public Service Comission).

    The following are the criteria for this exam

    You must be an Indian.

    You must be an unmarried male candidate.

    Your age must lie between 16.5 - 19 years.

    You must be physically and mentally fit.


    .....All the best....

    After 12th Arts you can not join Navy. For applying in Navy through NDA,you must have compulsory Maths and Physics at 12th level.Arts and Commerce students and Science students with no Physics and Maths as combination are not at all eligible.
    Even after Graduation,you will not be eligible for Officer posts as that requires candidates having Graduation in Engineering or Physics or Maths and should have Physics and Maths at 12th level.
    If you want to join Navy after Graduation,the only option for you would be to apply in Logistics department or Education department after Postgraduation.

    Hello my dear friend

    Yes dear you are not eligible to apply for the Indian Army with Arts Stream in 12 th


    If you have to apply for the Army then there is a Eligibility to apply for the NDA

    You must have to Remember one thing that is there is another Exam called TES

    TES is also only for the 12 th with PCM Subjects

    You have No chances to apply for the Indian Navy with Arts Qualification


    My best Suggestion is to you have to complete the Graduation with Minimum percentage of marks

    then there is a Eligibility for the CDS Examination to enter in to the Indian Navy


    That is all


    I hope this information will be useful to you


    Good luck
