Eligibility criteria say that Candidate should belong to science stream.

But Commerce students are eligible too if they have additional maths as the subject.

The NDA-1 paper is maths examination,and you haven't done any of topic in NDA's syllabus because you did not do Maths in Class 10,11,12.

It will be hard for you to clear

You have not mathematics subject in 12th standard, so you are not eligible for Indian Air Force.

Those candidates who have completed 12th standard with Physics and Mathematics from a recognized board are eligible for Indian Air Force through NDA exam.

Your age should be in between 16.5 to 19.5 years.
