    Hey friend,

    What is the Eligibility Criteria Required to appear NDA Exam?

    The eligibility criteria needed for the exam for appearing for the NDA exam is that you need satisfy the following:

    > Nationality

    > Martial Status

    > Age Limit

    > Education Qualification

    > Physical Standard


    To tell detailed about these criteria's it is as follows:

    You need to be a citizen of India and for applying for the NDA exam the candidate appearing must be a unmarried male candidate.

    The age limit needed for applying for the NDA Exam is that the candidate must have 16 1/2-19 years

    For joining in Indian Army the education qualification which you need to possess is that you must have completed +2 with a fair percentage from a recognized school board of education.
    In the case of joining in Indian Navy & Air force you need to have completed +2 with physics and mathematics as subjects with a fair percentage.

    You need to be physically fit while appearing for the exam as it is important


    If you are satisfying all these then you are eligible for applying.


    Am I Eligible to Join NDA with my Educational Qualifications with Respective Percentages are like Graduation with 64%, Intermediate with 48.4% and 10th Standard with 79%?


    Yeah you are eligible for applying for the NDA exam as regarding the education qualification which you possess but there is a issue that you have mentioned that you have completed your Graduation with 64% which states that you must be around 19-20 years if you have completed a UG degree of 3 years.

    If you are 19 years old then you can apply for the exam but if you are more than that then you will not be eligible for applying for the exam.


    You can get more information regarding the exam at the official site of UPSC at www.upsc.gov.in

    see my dear friend you are graduate so you must be more than 19 years of age , hence the possibility of joining the army just ends there, because the age limit to join NDA is 16.5 to 19 years..............
    now it comes down to cds entry for which you can apply.........
    the age limit for cds entry is
    army(ima) 19-24
    army(ota) 19-25
    airforce and navy 19-23..
    for cds you need to be a graduate which you are as you have completed your bca but to be honest you need to improve your english to qualify CDS as well as SSB
    because seeing the way question is written i think you need some serious efforts on that front......i don't want to demoralise you but just wanna help you realise the areas you are upon
    all the best

    Hello my dear Friend


    One thing you should remember is There is No requirement of the Percentage

    You have to pass the 10th and 12th With Minimum Percentage of marks

    That percentage will depends on the Relative Percentage If the Applicants are lot in Number

    Coming to Your Problem Any Candidate Can apply for the NDA Examination


    But You must have the Age in between 16.5 to 19 years

    As you said you have Completed the Graduation so your Age Might be crossed the Age Limit

    So you don't have the Eligibility to apply for NDA



    But there are So many options to get in to Defense sector

    Like CDS Exam and According to the Your stream you can apply for the Different wings

    There is No Percentage criteria for the CDS examination

    If you want go to the Indian Air force you have to write AFCAT in which you will find the Different branches


    That is all

    I hope this information will be useful to you

    Good luck
