    Re: Eligibility criteria of CDS entrance exam for B.Sc pursuing candidate?

    yes B.Sc. students are eligible for CDS exam. Bt , you didn't mention here that in hich year you are at present.

    By the way, you can apply and give the exam. but if you clear the exam then you should show your qualification certificates at the time of SSB interview for further procedure.


    Moreover,
    >>>>>> For NAVY: You need NCC certificate as you are doing B.Sc. However one who has B.Tech. degree, has no need of B.Sc. certificate..
    >>>>>> For AIR FORCE: you should have PHYSICS & MTAHs. at 10+2 level.

    for CDS exam pattern & syllabus, you should read upper reply by a member of this site....
