    Re: Eligibility for girls to attend NDA examination? What are the other options?

    Hai Friend....,




    According to the eligibility criteria of NDA Girls are not eligible to apply for this exam.

    As this exam is only for the Unmarried male candidates. The male candidates who have passed the 10+2 exam or has appeared in the 12th board exam are only eligible.

    But girls can apply for the various defence services through CDS and UES exam.

    If you are studying or want to study the engineering then you may apply through University entry Scheme(UES) or through Combined defence Service examination (CDSE).

    You can also apply for the CDSE if you don't study engineering after the completion of your engineering.

    So NDA exam is not for the girls. This exam is only for the male candidates. If you have interest in doing defence services then you can join by the above method explained.






    ......GOOD LUCK......

    No my dear girls are not eligible to Write NDA Examination. It Is meant Only For Unmarried Male Candidates.
    The eligibility is for only boys because it is for Defence Soldier in India having age of 16½ to 19 years and should be Unmarried.
    But The girls are eligible for writing exams like AFMC and should be 16½ to 19 years old.

    Re: Eligibility for girls to attend NDA examination? What are the other options?

    Hi`

    I am really sorry to say that females/girls cannot apply for this exam. NDA stands for the National Defense Academy.

    UPSC (Union Public Service Commission) conducts this exam twice in 1 year i.e in the months of April and August. They are NDA 1 and NDA 2. So certainly there are a few Eligibility Criteria's which the applicants need to fulfill in order to take up the NDA examinations. They are :-

    1. You should be an unmarried male Indian with age between 16.5 to 19 years.
    2. Should be a 12th pass from a recognized school but as such no cut off percentage is mentioned. So you have to be a clear pass in all the subjects.
    3. Physics and Maths are needed for the Naval and Air Force wings.
    4. Also physical and mental fitness is necessary.

    Since you are a girl, I am really sorry to say that after 12th, girls do not have any scope in the Indian Defense. However you can always apply for the after graduation entry in the Defense by the exam called the CDS - Combined Defense Services.

    This is also similar, but one should be a minimum graduate in it. Also married candidates can apply in this. The age limits varies between the 21-25 years. So you may apply for the same.

    For any more information on this, Please Click Here

    Hope this helps

    All the best

    Regards
    RANJEET

    Hey friend,

    There is no eligibility for Girls in applying for NDA Exam even though you have done +2 which satisfied the education qualification which is needed for the NDA Exam

    The Martial Status qualification for the NDA Exam states that the candidate must be a Unmarried male Candidate in order to apply for the NDA Exam

    As you being a Girl you don't hold up chances for applying for the NDA Exam as per the Martial status standard.

    ALL THE BEST

    Re: Eligibility for girls to attend NDA examination? What are the other options?

    no girls are not eligible for NDA. infact girls are not eligible for any entry after 12th
    girls are eligible only after graduation, so you should complete your graduation and then look for career in defence forces
    after graduation you can apply through CDSE and AFCAT
    age limit for cds is
    for army(IMA) 19-24
    for army(OTA) 19-25
    for airforce and navy 19-23
    AFCAT is for air force only and age limit is
    19-23 for flying branches
    19-25 for ground duty and
    18-28 for technical branches...............
    for both these entries you need to be a graduate, so complete your graduation and then chase your dream
    all the best
