    Re: What are the other ways to join Indian Army after 12th standard?

    Hello my friend ,
    According to the present situation you are not eligible for any of the cadre post in the Indian Army .
    This is mainly because you are grown/aged more than the eligibility criteria of age required to apply for the post of cadre in the Indian Army . The maximum age required by a 10+2 level passed male to apply for the post of cadre in the Indian Army is 19 years . So you are left only with a last choice of entering in the Indian Army after completing the 10+2 level studies and it is of the post of soldier .


    And moreover you are eligible for this post if and only if you are an unmarried male candidate .
    Also you must apply for the post of soldier in the Indian army as soon as possible because at present you are 20 years old .
    And would complete the 20 years of age in the month of September of this year .
    The maximum age for applying the post of soldier in the Indian Army is 21 years and you are close of becoming non - eligible again .

    So Apply soon for the Soldiers rally of the Indian Army .

    For appearing for CDS Exam, you must be passed in 10+2 from any stream (i.e. Science/Arts/Commerce).

    And also, you must have Graduation Degree from any recognized university.

    Re: What are the other ways to join Indian Army after 12th standard?

    Hi dear Aspirant


    There are Only Two ways to Join in to the Indian Army after 12 th

    Those are given below and That too I have given the Age limits for the Respective Examinations

    a) NDA (16.5 to 19 years)

    b) TES (16.5 to 19.5 years)


    But You have crossed the Age for Two examinations so there is No opportunity with 12 th Qualification

    There is one chance to get in to Indian Army is You have to do Complete Graduation

    Then only you have a chance to get in to the Indian Army

    An Exam called CDS which is for the All wings for the Graduate students to join in Indian Army


    You can Go through CDS for better career


    That is all


    Good luck

    Re: What are the other ways to join Indian Army after 12th standard?

    As you have crossed the age limit for NDA or TES which are the main entry schemes to Army after 12th,you can not go for those.You can apply for other entry schemes after Graduation for higher posts.But there also you will face problem as your age will be near around the maximum age limit for entry to IMA after Graduation.
    If you do not want to study further and want to get in Army with 12th qualification,then You only have one option left ahead of you. You need to apply for the post of Soldier.
    The age limit for applying for Soldier post is 18-25years and minimum qualification required is 10th with above 45% marks aggregate.
    You can take part in the open rally of Indian Army held in your state every year.Keep checking Employment News or your local newspaper to know about the open rally in your nearby areas.

    Re: What are the other ways to join Indian Army after 12th standard?

    as per your educational qualification you would have been eligible for NDA and TES...but since max age limit for these entries is 19 & 19.5 respectively, so you cannot apply as you already 20..........so there is no way by which you can make it to the army as per your current qualifiaction............now you will have to complete your graduation first and then apply for CDS entry
    to be eligible for cds you need to be graduate.........so continue your education complete your graduation and then apply for cds
    the age limit for cds is
    army(ima) 19-24
    army(ota) 19-25
    all the best

    Re: What are the other ways to join Indian Army after 12th standard?

    Hello my friend ,
    According to the present situation you are not eligible for any of the cadre post in the Indian Army .
    This is mainly because you are grown/aged more than the eligibility criteria of age required to apply for the post of cadre in the Indian Army . The maximum age required by a 10+2 level passed male to apply for the post of cadre in the Indian Army is 19 years . So you are left only with a last choice of entering in the Indian Army after completing the 10+2 level studies and it is of the post of soldier .


    And moreover you are eligible for this post if and only if you are an unmarried male candidate .
    Also you must apply for the post of soldier in the Indian army as soon as possible because at present you are 20 years old .
    And would complete the 20 years of age in the month of September of this year .
    The maximum age for applying the post of soldier in the Indian Army is 21 years and you are close of becoming non - eligible again .

    So Apply soon for the Soldiers rally of the Indian Army .


    good luck.....

    The age limit needed for the exam ist hat the candidate must have 16 1/2-19 years

    The education qualification needed for joining in Indian Army is that the candidate must have Completed +2 from a recognized school board of education with a fair percentage.
