    Re: Will I be eligible for OTA through CDS after BBA?

    Hello

    YES YOU ARE APPLICABLE FOR OTA THROUGH CDSE.
    The basic theory behind the point is that through CDSE one can get into
    ~OTA
    ~IMA
    ~NA
    ~AFA

    Now to apply for all four ,you need to have minimum of graduation degree in any stream ,but for AFA and NA you should have physics and maths in 10+2,and you can have a graduation degree in any stream,but you must have physics and maths in 10+2.

    Now in order to apply for OTA and IMA you only require,the graduation degree.So you are very much applicable for OTA.
