    Dear aspirant,

    -For IMA your age should be between 19 to 24 years and you must be a graduate in any discipline.

    -So if you complete your Graduation before 24 years of age then you will be eligible for IMA.

    -You can enter IMA through CDS examination. The notifications comes twice in a year in may and november.

    -You can apply for CDS exam through online application by visiting UPSC website.

    -If you pass the objective type paper and SSB interview then you will have to undergo medical fitness test.

    -If you are fit as per the standards then you will be sent to IMA, Dehradun for 18 months training. If you complete the training then you will become an officer in army.

    BEST OF LUCK.....

    Hello
    to
    YES YOU ARE VERY MUCH APPLICABLE FOR THE IMA.

    But there is one point that you should keep in your mind

    The qualification required for the IMA is graduation from any stream,and obviously there is no problem regarding it.But the age limit for applying in the IMA is 19 to 24 years(but at the time of commencement of the course).

    Yes your age should be 19 to 24 years,when you the course is due to commence,and the point is that it almost takes 1 year time to start the course from the date of applying for the course.

    When you will complete your course of graduation,then you will be of 23 years old,hence it would be your last chance to apply for the IMA.

    The suggestion is that to apply for the IMA when you are in the studying in the final year of your graduation,the CDSE(IMA) is conducted twice in a year in the month of the September and January/February,the notifications are released in the month of the June and October,so you calculate and make every equation work for you,and decide when to apply.

    Dear Friend

    Since your age is 23 years,you cannot go for the NDA exam as it is one of the gate way for the IMA .

    The second option is that CDS that stands for the Combined defence services conducted twice every year by UPSC.

    Bachelor's degree in any stream from a recognized university is compulsory.

    You should be between 19-24 years.

    For any other details,please visit www.upsc.gov.in

    All the best

    - Exams are conducted two times every year.

    - So after B.sc give cds exam.
