    Hey friend,

    IMA is a defence service force and for joining in this force you need to write the CDS exam and this exam is conducted every year and held as CDS I and CDS II.This exam is carried out by UPSC(Union Public Service Commission).This exam is conducted for candidates to join in Indian Defnece Services.
    • Being a B.A 1st year student you cannot join in IMA even by writing the exam as you are not satisfying the education qualification which is the 1st point
    • The second point is that you are not eligible for the exam as per the Martial Status as only Unmarried male candidate is eligible for applying
    As you are not satisfying both the education qualification and Martial Status you are ineligible for applying for the exam for joining in Indian Military Academy


    For more information regarding the CDS exam check at the official site of UPSC at www.upsc.gov.in
