    Friend, it is very unfortunate to you that you are eligible for NDA Examination. As you have enrolled directly into B. Tech after 10th standard and you have never appear in 12th standard. As passed in 10+2 level or its equivalent is the minimum and most important crucial requirement needed to be eligible for NDA Examination. As you have no 12th passed marksheet & diploma, so will not be permitted to NDA Examination. If you have any further query, you may contact the concerned officials.Wish your bright future.

    Dear aspirant,

    -For NDA exam you should be 10+2 or its equivalent passed. Diploma in engineering is equivalent to 10+2. So until you complete your diploma in engineering you will not be eligible for NDA exam.


    -For NDA exam age limit is 16 to 19 years and unmarried male are only allowed for NDA exams.


    -As you are diploma in engineering you will be eligible for all the three branches of defence that is Army , Air force and Navy.


    -NDA exam is a objective type paper which you have to pass to be eligible for SSB interview.


    -IF you pass SSB you will be send for medical test. If you are medically fit then you will join NDA for your graduation.


    BEST OF LUCK.....
