    There is no limit to apply for the CDS examination because till the time your age is less than 25 you can apply as many times as you can, but age should not be less than 19 years as well.
    Let me tell you one thing, whether you are SC/ST or any creamy layer candidate there is no such relaxation or reservation to apply for the CDS examination.
    So it will be better for you to stop dreaming about the categories and all kind of stuffs.
    You need to concentrate on your studies more than the categories because it is a defence line not a police services where relaxation works.
    If you prepare well then definitely you can clear the examination because the rules are same for each of the candidates.
    Here is the eligibility criteria for the CDS examination, it will be better if you see these once.
    Here is the eligibility criteria for the same as follows-
    Eligibility criteria:
    -graduate in any discipline from a recognised university for indian army.
    -graduation in physics and maths or engineering for indian air force and indian navy.
    Age limit.
    -for Officers training academy 19 to 25 years of age.
    -for indian millitary academy 19 to 24 years of age.
    -for air force academy 19 to 23 years of age.
    -for indian naval academy 19 to 22 years of age.
    selection procedure.
    -written test.
    -SSB interview.
    -medical examination.

    Thank you.

    There is no separate caste based relaxation for any criteria in Defence service exams- be it NDA,CDS,AFCAT,UES,TES,SSC Technical,SSC Non Technical or whichever recruitment process..There is no limit on number of attempts for CDS exam for any category.You can apply any number of times till your age limit is not over.Age limit for CDS exam- IMA 19-24years, OTA 19-25years ,AFA 19-23years and INA 19-22years.

    you can apply for the CDS exam till 24 years old age.
    There is no relaxation for any category in the defence service exams so if you have a graduate degree from a recognized university and your age lies in the 19-24 years then you can apply for the CDS exam.
    The CDS exam held twice in a year so you can apply two times in a year for the exam.

    Friend, please note that reservation policy is strictly prohibited in defence recruitments. There is no any reservation system in CDS Examination. The recruitment process of CDS Examination is solely depends upon merit which is based upon written examination and SSB Examination. Candidate can apply for CDS Examination within the age limit of 19-25 years. It means that candidate below the age of 19 cannot apply. Also candidate above the age of 25 is not eligible. So, it is obvious that candidate can apply for CDS Examination as many times as he wishes or within the prescribed age limit (19-25 years). There is no any emphasis or any kind of relaxation for any reserved category. Candidates of all category have to follow same eligibility criteria, same recruitment process and same physical fitness standards.
