    Hello

    CDSE-full abbreviation is Combined Defence Service Examination.
    It is only the name which will give you an idea of the nature of this examination.

    It is a entry for all three wings in defence and is strictly for graduates only.
    Indian defence has set up various academies for training their officials,CDSE allows entry in those academies as the academy will provide training to the cadre.
    CDSE allows entry for IMA(Indian Military Academy)-a entry in army-minimum qualification required is graduation from any stream.
    Age limit is 19 to 24 years(at the time of commencement of the course,not at the time of applying).
    OTA(Officers Training Academy)-a entry in army-minimum qualification required is graduation from any stream.
    Age limit is 19 to 25 years(at the time of commencement of the course,not at the time of applying).
    AFA(Air Force Academy)-a entry in air force-minimum qualification required is graduation from any stream but with physics and maths in 10+2.
    Age limit is 19 to 23 years(at the time of commencement of the course,not at the time of applying).
    NA(Naval Academy)-a entry in navy-educational qualification required is B.E or B.SC(physics and maths).
    Age limit is 19 to 22 years(at the time of commencement of the course).

    As you have done B.COm,you are only applicable to IMA and OTA.

    In the Indian Defence fields there are different fields in which you can join. There are mainly three fields

    # OTA

    The candidates who will clear CDS exam such candidates can join any one of the field depending ion the marks in the CDS exam and also edibility.

    Age Limit

    INA 19-22 years

    The candidates have to have these age limits. And in addition to this you have to clear Graduation in any discipline from the recognized college or University.

    NOTE : The candidates should not have any Backlog in the Graduation such candidates are eligible for the exam.
