    Re: Can I apply for NDA exam after completing my degree in BCA?

    Dear Friend

    The basic requirements which you must fulfill in order to be eligible for NDA exam is :

    1.Academic requirements:

    >>You should be either be 10+2 passed or appearing from a recognized board with english as compulsory subjects.

    2.Age criteria is :

    >>The age limit for candidates of each and every category is 16.5 to 19 every that is no relaxations are applicable to any one.

    But I think after completion of your bachelor's degree in computer applications your age may not be less than 19 years .SO I think you are not eligible for the NDA examinations.

    3.Martial Status:

    >>You must be unmarried male Indian citizen

    Hope the information helps you.

    all the best

    Re: Can I apply for NDA exam after completing my degree in BCA?

    Friend, I want to clearify your doubts regarding NDA Examination and other defence recruitment examinations.As NDA Examination is only meant for candidate with the education qualification of 10+2. If your age lies between the age of 16.5 years to 19 years and passed the 12th standard, then you have the eligibility for NDA Examination.But you have now done the BCA degree. So it is most probable that your present age may be above the age of 19 years. Because above the age of 19 years, no one can apply for NDA Examination.Presently you are BCA degree holder, so you have eligibility for CDS Examination. For CDS Examination, you have the age of 19-25 years for Army wing, 19-23 years for Airforce and 19-22 years for 19-22 years.

    Re: Can I apply for NDA exam after completing my degree in BCA?

    DEAR FRIEND..

    The age limit required to apply for NDA is in between 16.5 to 19 years.
    And after completing BCA degree you must surely cross the maximum
    age limit of 19 years.

    So you can not apply for NDA examination after BCA degree.

    If you are very much interested in defence then you can apply for
    CDS after graduation.
    CDS is combined defence service examination held by UPSC twice
    in a year and after clearing it you can join any of the three wings of
    defence service..

    • You can not apply for the NDA exam after completing your degree in BCA.
    • The age limit stated for it is 16.5 years to 19 years.
    • The educational qualification stated for it is 12th pass, so you must have applied for it after completing 12th.
    • Now for at your qualifications, you must have to apply for the combined defence services (CDS) examination conducted by UPSC for entering the defence sector.
    • You must have to be male student for applying in it.
    • You need to be unmarried untill the completion of training for joining in it.

    If not , you are not eligible for the Exam .

    If your age is below 19 years and if you are an UNMARRIED MALE candidate , then you can apply for the exam . Remember , there is no Relaxation for any category .


    Selection process of NDA exam is ,

    If your age is crossed 19years , then it is better to complete BCA . Since , after completion of BCA degree , you can apply for the CDS exam to join in Defence services.

    CDS = Combined Defence Service

    For NAVY , Age limit is 19-22 years
    For AIRFORCE , Age limit is 19-23 years

    As you are doing BCA now , it is always better to you to complete BCA degree and then you can apply for CDS exam to join in Defence services.

    Re: Can I apply for NDA exam after completing my degree in BCA?

    Dear student after completing your BCA degree you can not appear NDA so after 12th you can do your desired NDA.Because your age will not permit to do your desired.So after 12th this is the best time to complete NDA.

    NDA(National Defence Academy)entrance exam.is conducted by UPSC 2 times in a year.

    NDA ELIGIBILITY:-

    1.A 12th standard from the recognized board can write NDA entrance test.

    2.NDA age must be within 16 1/2 years to 19 years.

    3.An unmarried Indian male student can appear NDA entrance test.

    4.NDA students eye sight must be normal without the eye diseases like color blind and night blind.

    5.NDA student's height and weight should be 152cms,42kgs respectively.

    So, if you have the age eligiblity then apply for NDA, otherwise you are to complete Graduation to do UPSC CDS Entrance test to join in Indian defence job according to your viability of qualifications.

    Re: Can I apply for NDA exam after completing my degree in BCA?

    I don't know why are you so eager to apply for NDA Examination after BCA?You would have the option to apply for CDS Examination rather than NDA Examination.As NDA Examination is meant for under-graduates. On the other hand, CDS Examination is meant for graduates only.At the time of completing BCA degree, if you age below 19 years of age, then you have the chance to apply for NDA Examination.At the time of completion of BCA degree, if your age above 19 years of age, then you are eligible for CDS Examination.CDS Examination is conducted by UPSC. CDS Exam like NDA Examination recruits the eligible candidated into Army, Navy, & Airforce through a written examination, SSB Interview and Medical Test.

    Here is thewhole criteria in front of you you can have a look on the same.
    graduation in any discipline to apply for indian army.
    graduation in physics and maths can also aply for the air force and indian navy.
    for OTA 19 to 25 years of age is required.
    for IMA 19 to 24 years.
    for NA 19 to 22 years.
    for AFA 19 to 23 years fo aage is required.

    dear friend,


    for NDA your age must be within 16.5 years to 19 years. and you need 12th with Math and Physics for Air force and navy wing and you need just 12th with any subjects for Army wing. if you satisfy these criteria then you can apply for the exam.

    you can also join Defence through UPSC CDS exam.

    Eligibility Criteria for CDS:

    Educational qualification
    for INA and Air force: B.Sc or Engineering degree
    for OTA and IMA: graduation with any subjects
    Age Limit:
