    Friend, at the age of 25 and with the educational qualification of only matriculation, you have no any way for joining army. Your age is not in accordance with the required ages for army recruitment. Moreover, your educational qualification is also too low as per required qualification for recruitment in army. At this age, I personally suggest you go for following examination which is conducted annually by Staff Selection Commission for job in Central Government: SSC MULTI-TASKING STAFF (For above mentioned examination, keep visiting official website of SSC - http://ssc.nic.in for any latest notification)

    Yes in this age you can apply for the army service through CDS exam.

    But you have only once chance to apply for the CDS exam because the age limit for the CDS exam is 19 to 25 years.

    CDS exam is conducted by the UPSC for the recruitment of candidates in the defense service.

    Eligibility for CDS exam
    ===============

    Candidates must be graduation qualified in any branch from valid university.

    You must be in age of 19 to 25 years.

    You can apply in final year of graduation also.

    You must be Indian.


    This exam is conducted in every six month.

    The notification will be updated at UPSC official website http://upsc.gov.in

    25 years is not a right age for joining army as an soldier because soldier minimum age must be between 17 1/2 to 21 years.So your age is over .with this age you can apply for other exam like 1> ssc clerk/LDC Age - 18 to 28 years2> Central Police Force -

    Sorry friend, in this age you can not join the defense service.

    The maximum age limit to join the army is 25 years.

    Moreover, your educational qualification don't satisfy the educational criteria of army.

    So friend, You should look for other government jobs.

    and My advice is that you should continue your study and get higher education.
