    If you are a graduate then You can apply for OTA through CDS Examination. CDS stands for Combined Defence Services. This exam is conducted by UPSC twice a year for recruitment of candidates (male & female) in IMA, OTA, AFA, NA.

    The eligibility criteria's for CDS exam are as follows
    Nationality:

    For OTA: Male candidates (married or unmarried) of age between 19-25 years.
    For OTA: Unmarried Women of age between 19-24 years.

    Hello aspirant
    It is really good to see your zeal to join armed forces.
    Armed forces give good opportunity to the female candidate as well to serve the country like male candidates.
    But for girls You need to give the CDS exam or combined defence services exam conducted by the upsc twie a year and also Afcat which is conducted by air force respectively.

    In CDS you have the option to apply for OTA as only option and you will be granted ssc or short service commission in non technical branch.
    For this exams you need to qualify
    Eligibility to qualify
    >>unmarried female candidates
    >>age limit-20-25 yrs
    >>education qualification-Final year graudation appearing student or graduation passed student from any recognised university or equivalent.
    For air force if you want to get in the flying branch then you need to have eyesight 6/6 perfect.
    Good luck

    Hey friend,

    For writing the NDA exam there is no scope for Girls to be attending the exam as you don't seem to satisfy the Martial Status needed for the exam.

    The Martial Status needed for the exam is that the candidate must be a Unmarried Male candidate

    Being a Girl you are not eligible for applying for this exam

    In the case of joining in OTA(Officer Training Academy) which is a defence force of India for which you need to write the entrance exam which is the CDS Exam

    This exam is conducted by UPSC and is held every year.And there are criteria's which are needed to be satisfied for applying.

    As per the Martial Status for this exam,it states that the candidate appearing must be a Unmarried/married male candidate or Widow Women.

    But you are also not eligible for the exam as per the Education Qualification needed.The education qualification needed for the exam states that the candidate must have completed a degree from a recognzied university with a fair percentage and it can from any discipline.

    So,it is better that you continue your studies and finish a Degree and then apply for entrance exams for joining in Defence forces.

    ALL THE BEST

    Hey friend,

    There is no scope for Girls to join in NDA exam as only candidate who is a Unmarried male candidate is eligible for applying for the NDA Exam as per the Martial Status for the exam.

    And for the OTA which stands for Officer Training Academy which is a defence force of India,for joining in this force you need to write the CDS exam which is also conducted by UPSC as like NDA exam.

    But for applying for this exam to join in the force the candidate need to e a Unmarried/married male candidate or a Widow or Divorced women to be eligible.

    But you cannot join in this force as with your education qualification as you are a +2 completed student,but the needed education qualification for the force is that the candidate must have completed a degree from a recognized university with a fair percentage,

    As you are satisfying it you are ineligible for applying for the CDS exam to join in OTA
