    Re: Can I join Indian Army if I have failed in graduation?

    It is appreciable that your ultimate aim is to Join Indian Army and there are lots of entries to Join Indian Army. You can Join army through National Defence Academy examination(NDA), Combined Defence Academy examination(CDS), UES, TGC etc. To Apply for NDA Examination you need to complete your only Intermediate examination and only unmarried male candidates between 16.5 to 19 years are eligible for NDA Examination. If your age should more than 19 years then you can not eligible for this entry. then you can only apply for CDS Examination.

    But to apply for CDS Examination you must have complete your Graduate degree course from a recognised University. If you have failed in your Final year then you can apply Provisionally. But you have to submit your all documents at the time of SSB interview. If you have not passed your graduation at the time of SSB interview then you will be disqualified.

    So, its better for you to complete your graduation first and then apply for the CDS Examination.

    This examination is conducted by UPSC, twice in a year and the Notification will be published in the employment Newspaper or in the UPSC official website.

    Combined Defense Services Examination is conducted by the Union Public Service Commission for Recruitment of These Academy :

    ## Indian Military Academy (IMA)
    ## Naval Academy
    ## Air Force Academy
    ## Officer Training Academy

    You must be in good physical and mental health and free from any disease to apply for this examination.

    Your age should between 19 to 25 years to apply for CDS Examination. So please passed in your graduation first and then apply for CDS and for more details you can visit the Indian Army official website.

    Hi,Actually you are failed in your graduation so you are not eligible for CDS(COMBINED DEFENCE SERVICE) exam.But if you are in between the age limit 16.5 years to 19 years, then you are eligible for NDA exam, i think you are not in the age limit to apply NDA because you are a graduation student.So first complete your graduation and then apply CDS exam.

    Yes sure you can but you can't apply for an officer's post .

    You need to go for junior post and their selections are held at various centres of army

    you need to choose whether you want to go into artillery infantry EME or any other branch of army

    And don't worry after joining you can work hard and give exam for an officer rank

    Best of Luck

    Regards

    Re: Can I join Indian Army if I have failed in graduation?

    Hello my friend ,
    Since you were not successful in your Graduation and due to this you are not eligible for any of the cadre post in the Indian Army .
    But if your age also passes the age of 21 or if you are aged more than 21 at present than you are not even eligible for the post of Soldier in the Indian Army . For becoming Soldier in the Indian Army your age should be between 18 to 21 years and if this is not in your case than you are not
    in your case than you are not eligible for any of the post in the Indian Army .

    But if your age lies below 21 at present than you should not =delay in applying for the post of soldier in the Indian Army .
    The qualification needed to join the Indian Army as a soldier is just to pass the 12th class board examination from an Recognised institution of India .

    But there even sees a hope for you to join the Indian Defence service as a cadre if you wish to complete your degree ,
    no matter you failed you can again repeat the same year and after passing it apply for the Indian Army Cadre post examination ,Such as Common defence service ( CDS ) examination Conducted by UPSC or Indian Army Entry scheme examination .

    So Best of luck .

    Re: Can I join Indian Army if I have failed in graduation?

    Hi,
    Good to see your aspiration to join Indian army.
    If you want to apply for the post of army officer then you should pass your graduation.
    since you have not cleared your graduation I am sorry to say that you are not eligible to appear for CDS to become an officer in the indian army.
    If you are that keen to join army you can opt for the soldier grade or tradesman grade if you fulfill the following criteria:
    -age limit for soldier 16 1/2 -21 years
    -nationality Indian
    -physically and medically fit
    -minimum height is 152 cms
    -eye sight 6/6
    -unmarried
    You will have to attend the recruitment rally conducted for the selection
    Good luck!!

    Hi Friend,

    -As per your record you are failed in graduation degree.

    -To join Indian Army through CDS exam.

    -CDS stands for combined defense service.

    -Minimum qualification required for CDS exam is graduation degree.

    -But you are failed in graduation, so you are not eligible for CDS exam for joining Indian Army.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    -If your age limit between 16.5 to 19 years.

    -Then you are eligible for NDA exam.

    -NDA means national defense academy.

    -Minimum qualification required for NDA is Intermediate.

    -Candidate should be citizen of India.
    ------------------------------------------
    -If you are more than 19 years, then my advised is that.

    -Firstly you will complete your graduation degree in any cost.

    -Then you will apply CDS exam for joining Indian Army.

    -CDS stands for combined defense service.

    -Age limit between 19 to 24 years.

    -OK and All the best.

    Re: Can I join Indian Army if I have failed in graduation?

    Dear Friend,

    I am sorry to say but considering your current educational qualification you can't apply for Indian Defence Forces. As after 12th, graduation is the next minimum qualification needed to apply for Indian Defence Forces. So I will suggest you to complete your graduation and then apply for Indian Army.

    Hope it Helps...
