    Re: Can I join Indian Army having commerce in 12th?

    Yes , my friend you can join the Indian Army if you select the commerce stream in your 10+2 level in the secondary school of education board . This can be done only if you apply for the National defence Academy ( NDA ) examination while you are studying in the 12th class or after passing the 12th class board examination .
    But also you must remember this that this examination is meant only for the male candidates and not for 12th class passed out girls .

    The NDA examination is conduced by the UPSC government of India . This examination are held twice a year
    The NDA - I examination is held in the first half of the year ,i.e, in the month of APRIL and the NDA - II examination is held
    in the second half of the year ,i.e, in the month of AUGUST .
    When you apply for the NDA examination your age has to be between 16½ to 19 years .

    The NDA examination is conducted in two different type of papers .
    The First paper is of the subject Mathematics which is conducted for 2 and 1/2 hours and for a total marks of 300 .
    The second paper is of the subject General Ability test which is conducted for 2 and 1/2 hours and for a
    total marks of 600 . Thus the National defence Academy examination is conducted for a total of 900 marks .
    Both this Papers are conducted on a particular day .
    The syllabus for the Maths paper is from the 11th and 12th class syllabus of CBSE Board of Education .
    And in the General ability test questions based on English , history , Chemistry . Physics , Geography , Civics are asked .

    So in this way after passing the NDA Examination and completing your course in Army wing of National defence Academy
    you can join the Indian Army as a cadre of higher posts .

    Dear

    Any stream of +2 can take you to the defence field. But if you want to join the air force or navy you can join for the +2 with mathematics and physics. Any stream is enough to join the army.

    Re: Can I join Indian Army having commerce in 12th?

    See my friend if you have the idea of doing graduation then take commerce group if not then take the science group. Because commerce students need to write exam before joining where science students dont need. Also your aim is to join army which needs only a pass mark in the concerned exams. Also you get marks in practical exams as well then why not take it.

    Re: Can I join Indian Army having commerce in 12th?

    hiii....you can apply for NDA also if you have commerce as your 10 2 subjects.....but you can join indian army only then not indian airforce and indian navy.....if you want to join indian navy and indian airforce also then you have to choose PCM as your 10 2 subjects...
    there are also opportunities to join indian army after graduation through CDS...
    overall if you choose PCM then its much benificial to you as compared to that of other subjects...
    goodluck

    If you want to become an army officer you have to appear for NDA or CDS.
    For NDA you have to pass 12th with science subject and for CDS you have to be a graduate with any science subject.
    So dear if you really want to join army you will have to take science stream for your 12th and apply for NDA.
    I hope it is clear for you now
