    Re: How can I prepare for CDS exam?

    The basic eligibility criteria is you should be a graduate from a recognized university.


    You are not eligible as you are not satisfying the basic quality.


    Try to finish your graduation and apply for the defence.


    The age limit is upto 21-30 so it is enough time given to finish your graduation.

    Thanks

    Re: How can I prepare for CDS exam?

    To start your basic preparation you need to know the syllabus of the examination which will be held in selected cities of the UPSC Board.Here am attaching the notification where you can find details regarding syllabus and SSB test.Since the examination consists of subjects like Mathematics,English and other subjects like (History and Civics,Biology,Geography,Chemistry,Physics and Current events) well split up in almost equal marks.Clearing the examination is not a big task but clearing the SSB is certainly going to be a huge task in hand.
    You can prefer NCERT Books from 7'th to 10'th class along with Upkar publication books for CDS.These books will definitely help you for the examination.Please note that there are even negative marks for wrong answering hence answer the questions which your sure off.
