    Re: Qualification required for CDS exam?

    CDS Exam is open for graduates (Any Stream) and also final year students who are going to be graduates before the course begins. You have to look for the notification for CDS exam which comes twice every year in Employment News (April and September usually) and apply. Then you appear for a general written exam which isnt too tough. With some basic knowledge and slight preparation, it is easy to crack. After the written results are out, you willl be called for SSB if u clear the written. Recommended from the SSB ensures your selection provided you are medically fit.
