    Hello

    There are only two entries possible in Indian army as a officer with the qualification of 10+2.
    1)NDA(National Defence Academy)
    The students who have completed 10+2 are eligible to apply.
    NDA is a combined entry for all three wings,you need to have passed 10+2 with physics and chemistry for navy and air force and with any stream for army.
    Age limit is 16.5 to 19 years(at the time of commencement of the course,not at the time of applying).

    2)TES(Technical Entry Scheme).
    It is also for officer entry but for candidates who have passed 10+2 with physics,chemistry and mathematics with minimum 70% marks.
    Age limit is 16.5 to 19.5 years(at the time of commencement of the course,not at the time of applying).

    If you want to join the Defense being a 12th passed candidate then you need to take up the NDA exam.

    NDA stands for National Defense Academy.

    The exam is conducted by the UPSC twice in a year.

    Since you want to join the Indian Army you should have passed 12th level in any stream.

    The 12th pursuing candidates are also eligible to apply.

    ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA FOR ARMY:-

    Should have passed 12th level in any stream for Army.

    Final year candidates are eligible to allow.

    Should be Indian citizen.

    Only unmarried male candidates are eligible.

    Age of the candidates should be 16.5-19 years.

    Should be physically and mentally strong.

    Here I have attached the details of the physical standards.

    To become an officer in indian army after class 12th you need to study hard and then apply for the NDA examination because this examination is conducted twice in a year and there is a huge scope for the candidates who like to apply for the same.
    If you apply for the NDA exam then you can opt for any of the wing like indian army, air force or navy.
    If you like to apply for the indian army then there is 12th pass required in any stream for the same.
    If you opt for indian air force and navy then 12thpass with physics and maths will be the condition.
    As you have written that you like to join army then you must apply for the same.
    Here is the criteria please follow.
    your age should be 16.5 to 19 years of age to apply for the same.
    You should not have any criminal record to apply for the same.
