    Dear,

    except through NDA you can apply for indian army .such as though CDSE,SSC,UES,I.M.A.etc etc
    . for appearing in thgis exams you must have to complete your graduation.

    you have to be 19 half to 23 half years of age and must have passed graduation.
    Candidates who are studying in the final year Degree course and have yet to pass the final year degree examination can also apply but they will be required to submit proof of passing the degree examination to reach the Army HQ/Rtg.


    Graduates with first choice as Army / Navy / Air Force are to submit proof of graduation provisional certificates on the date of commencement of the SSB Interview at the SSB.

    thanks!!!!!





    All the Best!!

    Hello,
    N.D.A (National defense Academy) is exam which is conducted by U.P.S.C (Union Public Service Commission). This exam will conduct twice in every year.

    You cannot join N.D.A exam because it is only for the unmarried man. And only for 16.5 to 19 years age.
    I think if you are done graduation then why not you go with C.D.S exam. C.D.S exam also will conduct by U.P.S.C. This exam will also twice in every year. In this you will get higher rank.
    In the C.D.S exam you will apply for O.T.A (Officer Training Academy).

    >> You should have graduate in any discipline with no percentage bar from a recognized university.
    >> Your age should be between 21 to 27 years.
    >> You are physical and medically fit according to the rule of S.S.B (Service Selection Board).

    Best of Luck...

    Hi friend,

    Girls are not allowed to join NDA or appear for the exam. NDA is not meant for girls. Only unmarried male candidates can apply for the exam in the age category of 16.5 years to 19

    years having passed their class 12th board exam or equivalent exam with at least 60% aggregate marks secured in PCM.

    Candidates appearing for these qualifying examinations can also appear for the NDA exam.

    No, female candidate is allowed to give NDA exam, so as no eligibility criteria is defined for them about height or eye sight.

    No, you are on the over age and qualification so you cannot apply for the NDA defense services. If you have decided to join the Indian defense services then you can apply for the any defense service except the NDA. Most way to enter in the defense is the CDS exam. To apply for the CDS exam the candidate should be a graduate with more than 60% marks. The age of the candidate should be in between 21 years to 27 years. The age relaxation is also given to the reserved category candidates.

    Dear your not eligible for NDA entrance examination ,

    Here iam like to clear your doubt regarding your age limit , AGE limit of NDA examination : your age age should be 16 1/2 years then only your eligible for NDA Entrance examination .

    The rule of UPSC union public service commission , the candidate should be attain the age of 16 1/2 to 19 years , then only the candidate are permitted to participate in the entrance examination .

    For NDA examination , you should qualified for 12th examination from recognized university . your age should be 16 1/2 years to 19 years . you should be physically fit for the while your participate in the NDA entrance examination .

    NDA examination is divided into three levels Like ,

    • Interview
    so your not eligible to participate in NDA examination , if your interested in join defence service then you should apply for CDS examination . this examination also one of the defence examination . This CDS examination help to secure the defence job as you like .

    In the C.D.S exam you will apply for O.T.A (Officer Training Academy).

    Dear frd,You cannot join N.D.A exam because it is only for the unmarried man. And only for 16.5 to 19 years age.
    I think if you are done graduation then why not you go with C.D.S exam. C.D.S exam also will conduct by U.P.S.C. This exam will also twice in every year. In this you will get higher rank.
    In the C.D.S exam you will apply for O.T.A (Officer Training Academy).all the best

    you cannot join NDA ,because the age limit for appearing for NDA is 16 1/2 to 19 years,
    if you really interested in defence you can write CDS exam after graduation if you have minimum percentage of 60%,
    the age limit for appearing CDS exam is 21 to 27 years

    Re: If I am 23 years old can I join NDA after graduating?

    sorry dear.

    but i will tell you that you will not be able to join NDA due to following reasons:

    1-maximum age for NDA is 19.5yrs for army,
    and for IAF and navy that is 19yrs.

    2-girls are not applicable for NDA.

    NDA offers only boys to join defence services.

    but you may apply for defence services to join defence services.
    after your graduation...

    all the best..........
