    Re: Can I join Navy or Air Force after scoring 68% and 57% in 12th?

    Dear

    To join in the air force and army your +2 score and graduation scored will be considered.

    If you have 60% mark for your B.E you can appear for CDS exam or other exams such as PABT,UES AFCAT etc can appear. But while considering your age you can not join in air force or in navy because the age limit to join in air force is between 19 to 23 and for navy is 19 to 24.

    So you can not join in the air force or in navy.

    Thank you dear.

    No friend sorry!!!!
    you cannot go for the Indian defence after 12th with 57 % as the minimum percentage for the NDA exam is 60%!!!
    I am sorry. The NDA exam is the main gate for the entry in to the any wing of the Indian defence based on ypur 12th percentage and subjects of study.....open for the males with 16.5 to 19 years of age..this exam is only accessible by the 60% and above candidates in 12th...,,,
    Better luck after graduation...
    after your graduation you can go for the Indian combined defence services exam of UPSC to enter in to the armed forces!!!
    good career ahead!!!

    Hi friend,

    I am sorry to say that you are not eligible for this because you have already crossed the age limit to join Navy or air force.

    The maximum age to join Navy is 22 and to join Air force is 23.

    So, you can not apply for this because they are very strict about the age criteria.

    Regards

    The minimum percentage required is 55% in 10th and atleast 60% marks in 12th.So,if you had 68% in 10th,it was ok.Then you were eligible but because of your 57% in 12th,you are not eligible.Sorry.

    Eligibility Criteria for NDA :-

    The candidate must be citizen of India or Subject of Bhutan or Subject of Nepal ..... etc.

    Candidates who are pursing in the final year of 12th examination may also eligible to apply for National Defence Academy examination.
