If you want to join Indian military then you have to give CDS exam. The "Combined Defense Services" Examination is conducted twice a year by the Union Public Service Commission.

Following is the eligibility criteria of CDS exam:

Your age must be between 19 to 24 years.
Only unmarried graduates are eligible to sit for the exam.
Final year candidates can also apply for the CDS exam. There is no restriction of percentage in graduation to apply for CDS exam.
You must be an Indian.
You should be mentally and physically fit in all respect.

Exam Pattern of CDS exam:

Written test
Medical Test
