    sorry my friend . basic EQ is now HSC not SSC as it used to be earlier,
    you need to be qualified at least up to 12th to join Indian Army.
    whats your age now.
    12th qualified and age should be between 18 to 22 years.

    Dear friend,
    It is very good to see your aspiration to join army
    But let me tell you the basic educational qualification to join army is 12th pass from a recognised board
    Age limit is also minimum 16 1/2 years
    So I suggest you dear, complete your 12th first and apply for NDA exam
    NDA exam is conducted by UPSC twice a year
    Wish you good luck

    Hey friend,

    No a 10th qualified candidate is not eligible for joining in Indian Army on the reason that you are not satisfying the needed education qualification for joining in Indian Army.But it is good to see your interest in joining in Indian Army at this stage itself,so it is better you still continue your studies and finish +2.

    The reason why i am telling you to finish +2 is that you can join in Indian Army with that qualification as you can write the entrance exam for joining in it as it is the general procedure for joining.

    The minimum qualification needed by a candidate to join in Indian Army is that you need to have completed +2 from a recognized school board of education with a fair percentage.

    The exam which you can write is NDA Exam which stands for National Defence Academy.

    This exam is carried out by UPSC(Union Public Service Commission) and is held as NDA I and NDA II.

    Not only for joining in Indian Army this exam is held you can also join in Indian Navy or Air Force by writing the exam.

    The other criteria's would include such as that:
    • You need to be a citizen of India
    • You need to be a unmarried male candidate
    • The age limit needed is that you need to have 16 1/2-19 years of age
    • You need to be physically fit while appearing for the exam as it is important.



    For more info about the exam check at www.upsc.gov.in

    dear sir,
    you know about Indian Army and it is great that you are interested after 10 class joining also.

    But, its that you can join National defense Academy exam (NDA) after class 12.

    the exam for NDA is taken by UPSC two times in one year
    you can take any one in the month of april and august.
    The exam consists of two papers:

    1. Maths and
    2. General Awareness.

    Your age should be between 16.5 to 19 years for this and you should have completed class 12.

    As you are going to class 11, 12 make sure of one thing

    **If you have studied physics and maths in class 12, only then you can go for IAF, Navy and army.**
    if you go wihtout physics and maths, you will only go for army..

    Keep checking upsc.gov.in and nda.nic.in for more!!

    Re: Whether a 10th qualified candidate can join Indian Army?

    Hello dear ,
    Sorry to say but you are not eligible to join the Indian Army after completing your 10th class .
    This is because the minimum qualification required to join the Indian Army or any other Indian Defence
    Service is that a candidate should be 10+2 level passed , ie. at least 12th class passed out candidate .

    So , as you have just passed your 10th class you need to wait still a year to
    to apply for the post in the Indian Army .
    You can apply for the post of cadre in the Indian Army after passing your 12th class or studying in the
    12th class with any stream of subjects through the National Defence Academy ( NDA ) Examinations .
    This examination is conducted only for the 10+2 level unmarried male candidates of India .

    But remember for applying this Examination you must be an Indian or a refugee permanently settled in India
    and your age at the time of applying the National Defence Academy examination should be between 16˝ to 19 years .
    This examination is conducted by the Indian UPSC Government , twice a year as NDA - I and NDA - II Examination

    So thanks fore asking .

    Re: Whether a 10th qualified candidate can join Indian Army?

    dear sir,
    you can go for NDA i.e national defense academy exam after class 12.
    your age should be 16.5 to 19 years for this.

    the exam consist of maths and general awareness.
    if you want to go for air force or navy, then choose physics and maths in class 11, 12
    otherwise without physics maths also you can go for army.

    this exam is after class 12. so you have to wait..

    Re: Whether a 10th qualified candidate can join Indian Army?

    Sorry my friend ,
    Being 100% fit is not only the criteria to join the Indian Army .
    In order to join any of the Indian Army post you must be minimum 10+2 level Secondary Education passed .

    And since you are an 10th class passed out candidate so you are not eligible to apply for
    any posts in the Indian Army .

    Just wait till you get Qualified and than I would suggest you the best that you can have to join the Indian Army .
    But for the time being concentrate on your Studies and after coming to the 12th class see that are you fully qualified for the cadre post in the Indian Army .

    And if you are an Unmarried male candidate than you can apply for the cadre post in the Indian Army
    while studying in the 12th class through the National Derfnce Academy ( NDA ) Examination
    or through the Indian Army 10+2 technical entry scheme (TES) Examination .
    For both of these Examination you must be unmarried and your age at the time of applying any of the above examination
    should be between 16˝ to 19 years .

    Also try to get science stream of subjects in your 10+2 level Secondary education , so that it will be helpful for
    you in the NDA Examination and serve as an qualified Eligibility criteria for the TES Examination .

    So at present concentrate on your studies wholeheartedly .

    Re: Whether a 10th qualified candidate can join Indian Army?

    Sorry to say but you are not eligible to join army on the basis of 10th score .

    Because to join the army you have to give the NDA exam first and for that minimum 12th is required .

    As you are only 10th passed so that you are not eligible currently .

    You have to first complete the 12th and then you have to give the NDA exam .

    So first of all complete the 12th after that give the NDA exam and passed it .

    good luck....

So you need to complete the intermediate level in order to apply for job in defence sector.After 12th, you can join army through: * NDA Examination * Open Recruitment Rallies for # Soldier General Duty # Soldier Clerk # Soldier TradesmenAge limit required is as under: * 16.5-19 years for NDA Examination * 17.5-21 years for Soldier General Duty * 17.5-21 years for Soldier Clerk * 17.5-23 years for Soldier TradesmenEducational Qualification: * 10+2 in any discipline for all the above mentioned posts * 10+2 (with physics & mathematics) for Navy Academy/Airforce Academy in case of NDA Examination

    No my dear friend,

    A 10th passed student can not join Indian Army because the minimum requirement to join any of the civil service is 12th with in any of the field.Mainly there are two entrance exams which are offered by UPSC for the civil services.Those entrance exams are:

    1.NDA
    2.CDS

    ---->>>NDA stands for National Defense Academy and it is an entrance exam which is given by the students after completion of 12th with in any of the field with more than 50% marks under some recognized university or board.

    ---->>>CDS stands for Combined Defense Services and it is also an entrance exam which is given after the completion of graduation course in any of the field with more than 50% marks.

    ---->>>But a 10th passed student is not eligible for Indian Army.If you do your 12th with arts then you are eligible only for Indian Army but if you complete your 12th with Non-Medical and Medical then you are eligible for Army as well as Navy and Air Force.

    Thank u!!

    You can join Indian Army after the Intermediate now you are in the ‘ Tenth class’ . So you have to first clear Intermediate from the recognized college after the tenth class then you are eligible for the NDA exam. By the NDA exam you can join Indian Army. The Basic qualification for the NDA exam is the Intermediate so you have to first clear Intermediate. The NDA ( National defence Academy ) is the one of the Best exam for the Intermediate candidates to join Indian Army.

So your age should be 16.5-19 years. The candidates who want to apply for the exam such candidates must have the age limit in the between the 16.5-19 years. And also you have to be physically and mentally fit and do not have any type of the diseases and effects in the body.

The Candidates who will hav all the requirement then such candidates can apply for the exam in the UPSC official website . The selection of the candidates by the written exam and also Interview. So Aspirants have to first apply for the written exam. The written exam will consist of the Mathematics and also General Ability ( Biology, Physics and Chemsiotry and also History).

    Re: Whether a 10th qualified candidate can join Indian Army?

    No, There is not any procedure through which you can join the Indian army just after the 10th..
    So, for joining the Indian Army at least you must have to complete your 12th..
    Along with completing your 12th you will have to satisfy certain more criterias i,e.
    Your age must be between 16.5 to 19 years..
    You must be physically and mentally fit and unmarried..
    you must be a citizen of India..
    And after satisfying these criterias also you can apply for the NDA I and NDA II exams.....

    Sorry to say friend,
    The candidates with 10th passed cannot apply for Indian Army.

    NDA exam is held by UPSC for the admission of the candidates in the defense wings.

    The candidates who are having the 12th level passed or appeared for or in the final year are eligible to apply.

    You need to wait untill you satisfy any of the eligibility criteria.

    ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA:-

    ><Should have passed 12th level in any stream for Indian Army.

    ><Final year or candidates who have appeared can also apply.

    ><No minimum marks are needed.

    ><Age of the candidates should be 16.5-19years.

    ><Only unmarried male candidates are eligible.

    ><Should be Indian citizen.

    ><Should be physically and mentally fit.

    I have attached the physical standard detail and also the syllabus of NDA.

    You should start preparing from now onward.

    The selection procedure include Medical test where the physical standard should be met.

    The exam is held twice in a year.

    Re: Whether a 10th qualified candidate can join Indian Army?

    dear aspirant,


    Sorry to say that on the basis of your 10th qualification you can't join Indian Army.

    for Army the minimum qualification is 12th. so if you want to join army you have to clear 12th.

    or you can also apply for the exam while pursuing 12th.

    after 12th or while pursuing in 12th you have to write NDA exam.

    NDA stands for National defence Academy. the exam is conducted by UPSC twice in a year.

    for NDA your age must be within 16.5 years to 19 years. and NDA exam is conducted for unmarried male candidates.


    Good Luck.......

    To apply for the NDA exam you should be intermediate passed.

    Age should be 16.5 to 19 years.

    No age relaxation is available.

    You must be the citizen of India.

    Re: Whether a 10th qualified candidate can join Indian Army?

    No a 10th qualified candidate cannot join Army. You should be atleast 12th passed. Because the minimum educational qualification required for Army is intermediate (12th). So,first complete your 10+2 and then apply. Till that,you can also side by side prepare yourself for all the tricky questions.
