    Hello

    NO YOU ARE NOT ELIGIBLE FOR CDSE EXAM.

    CDSE is a entry for those candidates who have done their graduation,it is for the candidates those who have completed graduation,as you are still in intermediate stage you are not eligible for CDSE exam.

    After you complete graduation,you will be eligible for CDSE,As of now you are not eligible.
    As a intermediate student you can apply for NDA(National Defence Academy).

    A old notification of CDSE is uploaded for your notification.

    Dear aspirant having 63% in +2 exam you can not appear CDS(combined defence service).THIS CDS entrance exam. is

    conducted by Union Public Service Commission 2 times in a year.To appear in any CDS exam. a candidate have to finish

    his/her Graduate degree from the recognized University.

    My view about you if you are a male candidate then you need not appear CDS rather through NDA instead of CDS you can

    serve your purpose eg.you can appear just now and do NDA after that you join in any ARMY/NAVY/AIR FORCE/ wing.


    NDA ELIGIBILITY:-

    1.A 12th standard from the recognized University /board can do NDA.

    2.The age of the candidate must be within 16 1/2 years to 19 years.

    3.An unmarried Indian male candidate can do NDA entrance exam.

    4.NDA candidate's eye sight must be normal 6''/6'' free from color blind and night blind.

    5.NDA entrance examination is conducted by UPSC 2 times in a year.

    6.Minimum height must be 157.5 cms.

    If you are over aged or girl candidate then you need to appear CDS after the completion of your Graduate degree.
