    Hello

    YES YOU CAN APPLY WITH 40% MARKS IN CDSE.

    Minimum qualification required to apply for CDSE is graduation.
    But percentage is not a issue in any way,you just need to complete graduation from a recognized university to apply for CDSE.Only pass marks is enough to be eligible.

    Hence you just apply to the CDSE,without any doubt.

    You should study the notification of CDSE released,you will come to know everything.

    Hello my dear Aspirant

    Yes of course you can have a chance to apply for the CDS examination

    They are not mention any Percentage criteria to enter in to the CDS examination

    But For Type of Entrance test you must have minimum Percentage

    For IMA or OTA : You must complete Degree or Equivalent course

    For Navy Academy : B.sc from (Maths or Physics)

    For Air Force Academy : You must have complete degree from recognized university or Engineering


    Pre final year students can also apply for the CDS examination but they need to submit the Certificate which is attested

    Hey friend,

    It is little bit tough for you to opt for this exam but still you are eligible for applying for the exam as per the Education qualification needed for the exam as you have completed Graduation.

    The Education qualification needed for the exam is that the candidate must have completed a Degree from a recognized university with a fair percentage in order to join in IMA and OTA.

    For joining in Indian Navy the candidate must have completed a Engineering Degree from a recognized university with a fair percentage.

    For joining in Indian Air Force you need to have completed a Degree from a recognized university with Physics and Mathematics as subjects.

    And there are certain other standard which are needed to be satisfied in order to apply for the exam and they are:

    Nationality:

    # The candidate appearing for the exam must have a Citizenship in India

    Martial Status:

    # Only Unmarried male candidate is eligible for applying for the exam

    Age Limit:

    # For joining in IMA it is 19-24 years

    # For joining in Indian Navy it is 19-22 years

    # For joining in Indian Air Force it is 19-23 years

    CDS does not specify any marks criteria.The main criteria regarding education is that you should have passed graduation or should have applied in the Final exam of Graduation to be eligible.CDS does not mention minimum marks in graduation for eligibility.You need to apply if you are a graduate.Prepare well and appear for the exam whenever the next notification comes out.All the best
