    Hi Aspirant

    Sorry to say that in the age of 22 years you can not apply for NDA exam.

    Because you cross the limit of age for NDA exam.

    The age limit for NDA exam is 16.5 to 19 years.

    But donít worry you can apply for AFCAT exam.

    AFCAT stands for Air Force Common Admission Test.

    AFCAT exam is conducted at graduation level for the Air Force wings of Defense.

    It has three branches

    Ground Duty: For the ground duty you should be graduated in any stream from recognized university or Colleges. Your age should be between 20 to 23 years and you must be Indian.

    Technical Duty: For the technical duty you should have B. Tech or BE degree in Aeronautical branch. And you age should be between 18 to 28 years. You must be Indian.

    Flying Duty: for the Flying duty you should have BE or B. Tech degree with 60 % marks from any UGC recognized college. Your age should be between 19 to 23 years. You must be Indian


    Best of LuckÖ

    Dear friend,
    As you have said your age limit does not permit you to apply for NDA exam
    The age limit for NDA exam is 16 1/ -19 years
    So I suggest you can apply for CDSor AFCAT. Exam
    The eligibility criteria are as follows
    -qualification graduate
    -age limit is 19-24 years
    -nationality Indian
    -physically and medically fit
    -minimum height for male is 152cms and female is 157cms
    If you clear all these criteria you can apply for these
    Wish you good luck

    Hello

    The age limit for NDA is 16.5 to 19 years(at the time of commencement of the course).
    As you are currently of 22 years old,hence you are not eligible for NDA.

    The age limit for AFCAT for graduates is 19 to 23 years(at the time of of the course),for post graduate it is 20 to 25 years(at the time of commencement of the course).

    Now your age is 22 years,if you are a graduate then you have last chance of applying as after this you will be of 23 years and then will not be eligible,after applying it takes 1 year time to start the course,hence it is required that you apply when your age is 1 year less.

    If you are a post graduate then you have many chances to apply.
