    It is required for one to have minimum qualification of 65% in 12th to apply for the different defence jobs. But if anyone is interested to go for technical branch of defence services then it is required that the candidate must have qualified the B.tech degree with minimum of 65% of marks in aggregate. The age limit for different defence sectors is as follows.

    Indian Air force-19 to 23 years*
    Indian Navy-17 to 21 years*
    Indian Army-16.5 to 19 years*


    Good luck

    *Written test
