    IMA and OTA comes under Indian Army,INA under Navy and AFA under Airforce as is obvious from the names.

    Hi,
    UPSC conducts CDS exam twice a year.
    While filling form you have to select the preference (i.e IMA, NA, OTA and AFA) what you wants to join.
    So,
    IMA stands for Indian Military Academy
    NA stands for Naval Academy
    OTA stands for Officers Training Academy
    AFA stands for Air Force Academy.
    sorry my friend you can't give the elementary mathematics paper which is Part 3 of this exam if you have ticked OTA as your preference.
    Good luck.

    Re: Full forms of IMA, NA, OTA and AFA in CDSE application form?

    The full form for various academies of CDSE are given below:

    IMA : Indian Military Academy , Dehradun

    NA : Naval Academy , Cochin

    OTA : Officers' Training Academy , Chennai

    AFA : Air Force Academy , Bidar/Dindigul

    If you have filled your first preference as OTA then also no problem if you are Engineering Graduates because you are eligible for all the academies if your age is according the criteria.

    Also the merit for OTA goes a little high compare to NA ana AFA because any Graduate can apply for OTA.

    So it is not going to hurt you if you have opted for OTA as your 1st preference.

    You can only give exam for that academy for which you have applied for in your application form. So if you have applied for NA and AFA then surely you have
    to appear for the maths paper.

    To develop the candidates for the post of the defence services as an officers post.

    2) OTA stands for the officers training academy it is located in chennai.
    3) NA stands for the naval academy it is located in kocchi.
