    You are over age.The age limit for applying in NDA is 16.5-19years.As you are already 20,you can not join NDA.If you have enrolled for graduation nor you have passed graduation,you can apply or CDS exam.You can get into Army through CDS exam if your age limit is 19-24years for IMA and 19-25years for OTA and you should be a graduate from any stream as minimum required qualification.CDS is also conducted twice a year by UPSC like NDA and the exam of CDS have English,GK and Maths as the subjects.

    Friend, you are not eligible for NDA Examination as your age is exceeding from the required upper age of 19 years. It is not possible to join NDA Examination after 19 years of age. As a general rule, candidate is required to be below the age of 19 years at the time of commencement of NDA Course. At this juncture of age, you should look at other civilian government job. You may apply for CDS Examination even after completing any bachelor degree.

    Re: Eligibility to appear in NDA-I & II exam for 20 years old candidate?

    Sorry you are not eligible to apply for the NDA examination because you have already crossed the age limit which is 16.5 to 19 years for the NDA examination.
    You are 20 years old so it will be better if you complete the graduation in any discipline and after that go for the CDS examination, because at this age you are not able to apply for the same.
    To apply for the CDS examination you must be having the following qualifties as per the UPSC eligibility criteria-
    You must be indian by nationality.
    You should not have any criminal records.
    male and female both can apply bu they need to be unmarried.
    Your age needs to be 19 to 22 years for the Naval academy.
    19 to 23 for the air force academy.
    19 to 24 years for the IMA.
    19 to 25 years for the officers training academy.
    selection procedure for the same is as follows-
    written test.
    ssb interview .
    Medical examination.
    For more details log on to www.upsc.gov.in
    Thank you.

    Re: Eligibility to appear in NDA-I & II exam for 20 years old candidate?

    A 20 year old candidate can not apply for either NDA I or NDA II...

    You have crossed the maximum age limit to apply for the NDA exam..

    Following are the age limit to apply for the NDA exam..

    - You must have completed your 12th under a recognized board.

    - Your age must be between 16.5 to 19 years.

    - You must be a citizen of India.

    - And you must be physically fit and unmarried.

    So, you have crossed the age limit to apply for the NDA exam, but still you have a chance to join the Indian Armed Forces by applying for the CDS exam...

    After completion of your graduation you can apply for the CDS exam conducted by the UPSC twice a year.

    Re: Eligibility to appear in NDA-I & II exam for 20 years old candidate?

    DEAR FRIEND...

    The age criteria required to appear in NDA exam is in between 16.5 to 19 years
    and at present your age is 20 years which means you can not apply for NDA
    examination.

    If you are very much interested in defence sector then you must start praparation
    for other examinations such as CDS.

    CDS is combined defence service examination and is conducted twice in a year by
    UPSC. You can join any of the three defence sector after clearing CDS examination.
    For CDS examination you must be graduated from a recognised university.

    Re: Eligibility to appear in NDA-I & II exam for 20 years old candidate?

    Hi dear Friend


    Iam Really sorry to say this you have not Eligibility to enter in to the Defense through NDA

    Since the Reason behind the issue is You must have the Age in between 16.5 to 19 years at the Time of SSB interview

    For Both NDA I and NDA II you are Not eligible

    Here NDA I means UPSC conducts the NDA exam twice in a Year

    On the First Half of the year it is Known as NDA I and The Exam conducts on the Other half of the Year known as NDA II


    That is the Reason why you are Not eligible to apply for NDA


    More over it requires the 12 th Students and Only MALE unmarried students are Eligible to apply for this Examination

    If you are Interested to join in the Defense then You must complete the Graduation first


    It was pleasure to help you

    All the best

    Dear friend
    You can not apply for NDA exam as your age is more then the NDA eligibility.
    For NDA age limit is 16.5 to 19 years.

    If you can wait then complete your graduation from and then apply for CDS exam.
    CDS stands for Combined Defence Services conducted by UPSC twice a year.

    Eligibility:

    *Graduation degree from any recognized college or university.
    *Age limit is 19-25 years.
    *The candidate must be the citizen of India.

    After written exam successful candidates are called for SSB.

    Good Luck
