    You can join Indian army by giving either NDA Exam or CDS exam….Talking about the NDA exam so this exam is held by UPSC every years and those candidates who wish to appear for this exam they required minimum qualification of 12th class with Physics and Maths subjects…and there age should be between 16 half to 19 years and if any one fulfill these criteria then he is eligible for the appearing in the NDA exam and also that in NDA exam only boys are eligible….
    And talking about the CDS exam so in this exam both female candidates as well as male candidates are eligible for appearing in the exam but they required minimum qualification of graduation with Physics and Maths subject and if any candidate have bachelor’s degree in Engineering in any stream then he or she may eligible for the appearing in the Indian ARMY CDS exam..]
    You can join these course s by filling up a small forum of small amount required..but you have to give exams for that after filling these forums and also these not required too much money…

    Dear

    To join in air force, you should complete your +2 with maths and physics subjects and should score 60% mark for this exam.

    If you are graduate you should take science subjects or it should be B.tech.

    If you are a +2 candidate you can appear for the NDA exam to join in air force, if you are a B.tech graduate you can appear for the CDS, UES, PABT, AFCAT exams to join in air force.

    If you are selected you do not need to pay any charges for the training.

    Thank you dear.
