    Re: Can I join Army after B.A. with low percentage in 12th?

    Hi friend,

    If you want to join Army after graduation, then I am giving you some tips.

    generally the acceptable mark in all sector is 45%.

    If you have 45%-50% or more than it in graduation, then you can apply for this.

    As you will join army after graduation, there is no need of percentage of 12th.

    And you have to clear the written test examination.

    So, Don't be worry.

    Try to prepare well for this exam.

    Regards

    age limit=19-24 years

    should be mentally and physically strong..

    free from diseases

    height=157cm(men) & women(153cm)

    =both men & women can attempt this exam

    unmarried

    should be citizen of India

    one can visit the official website=www.upsc.gov.in (can the update regarding exam notification and application)

    good luck

    thank you
