    There is no minimum marks required to apply for the CDS examination and also there is no percentage criteria in the examination as well.
    So if you are waiting to apply for this examination then you should not hesitate because of the percentage just apply for the same as only graduation in any discipline from a recognised university id the need that required to apply for the indian army.
    And physics and maths in graduation helps you to apply for the air force and navy as well.
    Here is the eligibility criteria for the same.
    Your age must be like this.
    19 to 22 years for indian navy.
    19 to 23 years for the indian air force.
    19 to 24 years for indian millitary academy.
    19 to 25 years for the officers training academy.
    Selection procedure -
    Written test.
    SSB interview.
    Medical examination.

    Re: Minimum marks required in graduation for CDS entrance exam?

    Hello my dear Friend


    There is No percentage criteria for CDS examination which is not officially released by UPSC

    But In the Notification they will not mention the Percentage criteria but they specify the Minimum percentage in your graduation

    That there is no preference for Branch or stream which is in the Graduation

    Pre final year students can also apply for the CDS examination


    If you are a B.Tech/B.E student you have Two options

    You can have a chance to apply for the CDS as well as USE exam


    ==> For USE you must complete the graduation from Aeronautical engineering (Electronics ) or Aeronautical engineering (mechanical )

    ==> The Age is in between 19-25 years for USE exam

    ==> You should secure minimum 70% marks for USE exam



    That is all


    Good luck

    Hey friend


    There is nothing specific about the Minimum marks which is required in Graduation for the CDS exam as for the exam you just need to have completed a Degree and that with a fair percentage as that matters.

    For joining in IMA or OTA you need to have completed a Degree from a recognized university with a fair percentage.In the case of joining in Indian Navy the candidate need to have completed a Engineering Degree from a recognized university

    For joining in Indian Air Force you need to have completed a Degree with Physics and Mathematics as subjects with a fair percentage.

    And the other criteira's which are needed to be satisfied along with the Education qualification which is needed are:

    The candidate appearing for the exam must have a Citizenship in India,

    The candidate appearing for the exam must be a Unmarried male candidate and for OTA even married/unmarried women is eligible for applying

    The age limit needed for IMA is 19-24 year

    For Indian Navy it is 19-22 year

    For Indian Air Force it is 19-23 years

    In the case of OTA it is 19-25 years

    Apart from all these the candidate need to be Physically fit while appearing for the exam




    If you satisfy them all then you can apply for the CDS Exam

    The Examination Syllabus mainly consists of the

    # Mathematics

    # English

    If you studying in the Graduation then you must familiar and good practice of the Engineering Mathematics subjects and also Prepare with Some of the good mathematics Books

    Re: Minimum marks required in graduation for CDS entrance exam?

    Dear Friend

    To be very honest ,do not worry about the % of marks for the UPSC examinations ,only you need to clear all the subjects of your bachelor's degree .

    So even with passing % of marks you become eligible for the different exams.

    CDS also requires only passing % of marks in bachelor's degree from a recognized university.Even you are in final year you can apply for the exam.

    >>The age limit is 19-25 years.For certain academies the upper age limit is less than 25 years.

    >>Indian citizenship is necessary .

    >>You need to make your fitness well.

    For any more details ,you can visit www.upsc.gov.in

    Hope the information helps you .If you have any other query regarding this then you can leave your message here .

    All the best

    There is no marks bar for being eligible in CDS exam.You can have age bar but there is no percentage bar for CDS.You just have to be a Graduate in the relevant stream for being eligible.For IMA and OTA even there is no restriction on stream of graduation or any specific subject combination.You just have to be agraduate to be eligible for IMA and OTA.Pass marks in Graduation is enough to make you eligible for the exam.There is age bar for various modules but no marks bar.
