    Re: What is the criteria to join Army or Air Force? How to prepare for it?

    hieee,,,,,
    The process of selecting cadets for the National Defence Academy is split into three phases :
    A written examination held by the Union Public Service Commission.
    An interview by the Service Selection Board to assess a candidate's officer potentialities ( Intelligence and personality test ).
    A medical examination by a Service Medical Board.
    to pre[pare for this you can take coaching ,
    there are soo many books available in market to prepare for this.

    Depends upon ur qualification u need to choose options such as NDA or CDS or UES(University Entry Scheme).
    If u r an UG student, then u need to attend an interview through UES scheme. then if u selected in that interview , then u need to undergo SSB training in their respective centers .
