    After 12, you can not join NDA because only male candidates can go for it.
    Being a girl, if you want to go for defense services i.e OTA (Officers training academy)

    you have the following ways:

    1. As you have taken science stream, you have to pursue degree in engineering, then after completing engineering
    in notified discipline, you will have to apply under technical branch.

    2. SSC non technical : in this, you can apply via an application when UPSC notifies.
    any graduate can apply.
    It is done twice in one year-->>
    a. the training commences in april and october.
    b. the notification comes in april and septmber.
    You age should be between 19 to 25 years.

    3. NCC entry: this is for NCC done students.
    you just have a graudate degree with minimum 55% marks, and 2 yrs in NCC with B grade in C certificate.
    you will have a this NCC entry twice a year.

    Keep checking upsc.gov.in and joinindianarmy.nic.in

    Nice to see your Interest in OTA(Officer's Training Academy) and to apply for this Academy you have to apply for the CDS(Combined Defence Academy) examination. This examination is conducted every year and it is one of the famous examination for Defence. The Main aim of this examination is to select the candidate in IMA/OTA/ Naval and Air force Academy.

    This is one of the most Competitive examination and you have to cracked this examination as per the pattern and syllabus.

    I appreciated your dedication towards Defence, but after completing your Intermediate examination you are not eligible for Defence. If you are Interested to Join OTA Academy then you have to complete your Graduation in any discipline from a recognised university.

    As a girl you have to OTA only as your Preference at the time of filling online application form.

    So, do one thing just complete your Graduation first and then apply for the CDS Examination. You can apply for CDS twice in a year and there are no restrictions to apply for CDS in Number of attempts basis. Your age should between 19 to 25 years, Upper age relaxation is not applicable for any candidates.

    The selection in this examination is based on these stages:

    -->> Written test by UPSC
    -->> SSB interview
    -->> Medical test.

    If you cracked the written test, only then eligible for SSB interview. If you apply for OTA then you have to cracked two papers, English and General Knowledge. The examination is objective and you have to give correct answers.

    So, firstly complete your graduation and then apply for CDS Examination for more details check official website of UPSC.

    Hey friend,

    OTA - Officer Training Academy

    For joining in this force you need to write the entrance exam for it and the entrance exam which is needed to be written is the CDS Exam

    This exam offers you to join in Indian Military Academy, Indian Navy, Indian Air Force and Officer Training Academy

    As asked for joining in OTA right after +2,it is not possible as you are not satisfying the needed qualification for it,as per the education qualifiation framed for joining in OTA by writing the entrance exam,it is that you need to have completed a degree from a recognized university in any discipline.

    By in the case of yours as only having completed +2 you are not eligible for joining in OTA,so it is better that you opt for any Graduation course as per the stream or of your wish and finish it with good percentile and then apply for the CDS exam to join in OTA as it is the exact procedure for joining.

    For more information regarding the exam check at www.upsc.gov.in

    Dear . a female candidate cannot apply for the Officer's training Academy after passing her 12th class .
    And can apply for it only after completing her graduation and
    applying for the Common defence Service (CDS ) examination .

    While applying the CDS Examination you have to give OTA as your first preference and
    if you pass the NDA examination than you can join the OTA .
    To apply for the OTA by a female graduate through the CDS Examination your age should be between 19 to 25 year at that time . You should be an Indian Unmarried Female candidate
    and should have a degree graduation in any filed of Bachelor's degree .

    So Wait till you complete your graduation .
