    Hello

    The CDSE allows entry for four academy 1)AFA(Air Force Academy)-air force 2)NA(Naval Academy)-navy 3)OTA(Officers Training Academy)-army 4)IMA(Indian Military Academy)-army.

    Now the age limit of AFA is 19 to 23 years(at the time of commencement of the course,not at the time of applying).
    The age limit of NA is 19 to 22 years(at the time of commencement of the course,not at the time of applying).
    The age limit of IMA is 19 to 24 years(at the time of commencement of the course,not at the time of applying).
    The age limit of OTA is 19 to 25 years(at the time of commencement of the course,not at the time of applying).

    Now your age is 23 years 8 months.Now it takes nearly 1 year time to start the course from the date of applying.
    Now according to that,you only fit for OTA.As the age require to apply for OTA is 19 to 25 years,at the time of commencement of course,you are applicable.
    The notifications of CDSE2 will be released in May and then your age will be 23 years 10 months ,when the course will start you will be well within 25 years.

    You can apply for CDS examination but you will be only eligible for Indian Army.

    There will be no direct SSB interview for you and you have to appear for Written examination.

    Direct SSB interview is only available for Special Entry Scheme like NCC, Short Service Commission Etc.

    You are a B.Pharm. student hence you are only eligible for Indian Army and you are not eligible for Air Force or Navy through CDS Examination.

    For joining Indian Army through CDS Exam your age should be between 19 to 25 years.

    The merit list will be prepared on the basis of marks in following stages:

    -Written Exam

    -SSB Interview

    -Medical Examination

    Dear aspirant,
    You cannot apply for the SSB interview directly because it is only possible either by the technical entry scheme or by university entry scheme.
    Technical entry scheme is for the class 12 passout, and University entry scheme is for the final or pre final year student of engineering and in both cases you are not eligible as per the qualification.
    But you can apply for the CDS examination for the Officers training academy bonly as the age limit will be crossed after this examination, so this will be the finsal chance for youto apply for this examination and after this you cannot apply for the CDS exam as wellas theage limit for the OTA is 19 to 25 years of age at the commencement of the course.
    qualification mentioned by is suitable for the CDS examination. if you failed to apply for this examination then you have the only one option and that is apart from the indian army.

    thank you.
