    This exam is conducted two times in a year. After the Intermediate the NDA exam is Path to join Indian Army but for this exam Girls are not eligible so you can apply for the CDS exam after the Graduation

    CDSE Combined Defence Service Commission

    Education Qualification
    You have to clear Graduation from the recognized college or University. The more important is you should not have any Back log in the Graduation.

    Age Limit
