    Re: Qualification needed to join Indian Army?

    Nice to see your Interest in Indian Army and there are lots of Entries to Join Indian Army, You have to apply for the entries as per your Qualifications. But if you have just completed your Matriculation examination, then you are not eligible for any entries, you have to atleast completed Intermediate examination. When you completed your Intermediate examination, then you are eligible for NDA. You can apply for these entries to Join Army:

    -->> National Defence Academy
    -->> Graduate Direct Entry Scheme
    -->> Technical Graduate Entry Scheme for Engineering graduates
    -->> UES Entry for Final and Pre final Engineering graduates
    -->> 10+2 PCM (Tech) Entry.

    NDA stands for National Defence Academy and this examination is conducted by UPSC, twice in a year and you have to complete your Intermediate examination from a recognised board, Only unmarried male candidates are eligible for this entry. Your age should between 16.5 to 19 years.

    The Process of selecting cadets for the National Defence Academy is held in 3 stages:

    -> Written test by UPSC
    -> SSB Interview
    -> Medical test.

    You can also apply for CDS Examination and University entry scheme when you are pursuing your Graduation. After graduation there are lots of Entries. For CDS, your age should between 19 to 25 years.

    You can also apply for UES, and for this Pre-final year candidates are also eligible, But you have to pursuing your Engineering degree course from a recognised university.

    The selection procedure of CDS Examination is same as NDA, you have to cracked the written test first and then Interview by SSB. So please complete your Intermediate examination first and then you are eligible for NDA Examination. For more details you can checked the official website.

    Hi

    Army is the most reputed organization in India and it is also one of the best respected one because of its discipline, strictness, strength, etc.. So there are a lot of candidates who wish to get into the army.

    1. Candidate should be a citizen of India.

    4. Physical Fitness is also a must for this NDA.

    Thus once you fulfill all these, you can apply for the NDA. For any more information, Kindly Click Here..
