    Re: What are the qualification criteria, percentage required and tests for joining Indian Army Services?

    No, you are not eligible for the upcoming NDA examination. According to the eligibility criteria of the NDA you need minimum 16 1/2 years but your age is less then 16 1/2 years so you are not eligible to appear in the NDA entrance examination. You can become eligible later for the NDA entrance examination. To appear in the NDA entrance examination you need the following criteria.

    Eliibility criteria for the NDA Examination.
    • Pass 12th class.
    • The age must be between 16 1/2 to 19 years.
    This is the basic eligibility criteria for the NDA entrance examination. So, as per your question you are not eligible to the NDA examination. You will be eligible when you become 16 1/2 years old. For details information regarding NDA entrance examination please visit :~ http://www.upsc.gov.in
