    There are many entries which are possible for army.
    After completing intermediate,the entry name is NDA(National Defence Academy).
    It is a special entry for intermediate candidates only.
    You need to have completed your 10+2 with any stream.
    Age limit is 16.5 to 19 years(at the time of commencement of the course,not at the time of applying).

    After completing graduation,there are many entries like CDSE(Combined Defence Service Examination).
    CDSE allows you to apply for IMA(Indian Military Academy),OTA(Officers Training Academy).
    Both are the entry in army,the educational qualification required is graduation from any stream.

    Other than the entry is TGC(Technical Graduate Course).
    Where only engineers are applicable.
    There is a entry named as SS(Tech)-Short Service Commission(Technical).
    Only engineers are applicable.

    If you have a NCC certificate,then there is a entry for NCC cadets only in army.
