    Hey friend,

    To join in OTA(Officer Training Academy) you need to write the CDS Exam which offers you to join in OTA.And the procedure to apply for the exam is that the candidate must have satisfied the framed criteria's for the exam as then only you will be eligible for the CDS Exam.

    The criteria's would include such as that you need to be Citizen of India.The Martial Status for the Exam is that you need to be a unmarried/male candidate for joining in OTA.The age limit needed for the exam is that the candidate must have 19-25 years of age.The education qualification needed for joining in OTA is that the candidate must have completed a degree from a recognized university with a fair percentage.The candidate need to be physically fit while appearing for the exam.

    Being a Final Year B.Tech student you are eligible for applying for the CDS exam as even final year candidate is eligible to apply for the exam.And even you need to satisfy all the other criteria's along with the education qualification in order to be eligible.

    ALL THE BEST
