    Hello Sir,

    I would like you to inform that you are not eligible for entry through CDS because it is a graduate entry program.
    You need to have a graduation degree for it.
    However you can apply for Defense Forces via NDA exam.

    Hey friend,

    CDS stands for Combined Defence Service

    To apply for the CDS exam you need to satisfy the eligibility criteria for the exam and you are not satisfying the eligibility criteria for the exam

    Being a 11th student and appearing for CDS after 12th, you cannot apply for the CDS Exam as the minimum qualification for the CDS exam is that the candidate must have completed a degree in any discipline from a recognized university.

    This exam is conducted for candidates to join in defence forces of India such as:
    • Indian Military Academy
    • Indian Navy
    • Indian Air Force
    • Officer Training Academy
    It is better that you apply for the exam right after completing graduation or else you can apply for the NDA Exam as it offers the candidates to join in defence with a qualification of completing +2.


    ALL THE BEST
