    Re: Can I get into NDA? Other options to join Army?

    Hi

    There are two ways to get into the army. This is through the Entrance Exams NDA I and NDA II. Both of these are conducted by the UPSC every year for the NDA recruitment purposes.

    Now if you are in your 10+2 classes, then this time is very crucial for you as it would decide your future what you are going to do and become in life. Thus I would request you to take up these studies very seriously.

    NDA is conducted twice i.e one after the board exams and the other after the results are out in the month of August. So you can apply for any you wish or for both even.
    There are a few criteria's of Eligibility which you need to fulfill or satisfy before you can take this up..They are :-

    1. Male with age within 16.5 to 19 years.
    2. Science candidates can apply for any of the 3 wings but Non Science candidates can apply only for Army.
    3. Physical fitness is a must.
    4. Should be a minimum 12th pass from a recognized educational institution or school..

    Only when you can fulfill these would you be able to apply for the NDA examination.. To know more about it and apply for it, Please Click Here

    Hope this helps

    All the BEST

    Regards
    RANJEET

    Re: Can I get into NDA? Other options to join Army?

    As you have said that you are persuing 10+2 right now so you can apply for the NDA examination after that you must be 12th passed to apply for the same.
    But as you said that other ways to join indian army then there is no way to become an officer in indian army after class 12th because NDA is the only thing that can get you inside indian army as an officer after class 12th.
    To apply for the same you need to fulfil the criteria for the same and all that is written below.
    NDA examination stands for the national defence academy-
    16.5 to 19 years of age is required to apply for the same.
    you must be indian by nationality.
    you should not have any criminal records to apply for the same because that will be not good as police verification will be there after the examination and you will be disqualified if you found in any of the things.
    selection procedure for the same is as follows-
    written test.
    SSBinterview.
    medical examination.
    for more details log on to www.upsc.gov.in
    thank you.

    Re: Can I get into NDA? Other options to join Army?

    Yes friend you can get into NDA exam but after 6 month because as per the NDA age criteria your age is 6 month less.

    To apply for the NDA exam your age should be 16.5 to 19 years.

    So friend you should wait for the 6 month and there is no other option to join the defense service at this level.

    To apply for the NDA exam you should be minimum intermediate qualified.

    You must be the citizen of India.

    Only unmarried male candidates can apply for the NDA exam.
