If you are Pursuing your Final year degree course only then you can appear for CDS Examination. This examination is conducted by UPSC Every year and if you cracked this examination then you are trained at the National Defence Academy, Indian Military Academy or the Officers' Training Academy.

Girls can apply for Officers' Training Academy(OTA), to apply for this examination your age should between 19 to 25 years.

The Notification will be published twice in a year in the employment Newspaper or in the official website. To apply for this examination you have to complete your Graduate degree course in any discipline from a recognized university, Final year appearing candidates are also eligible to apply for this examination.

Prepare for the Combined Defense Services Exam. This exam tests your knowledge of English, math and general knowledge. The examination is Objective.

Once you cracked the CDS Examination, you are eligible to appear for the Service Selection Board (SSB) interview and the medical examination.

So, you can apply for CDS Examination after graduation to Join Defence.

Dear Friend ,

As you are pursuing B.Com and your age is 19 years , then i just want to say you that you are not eligible for joining Indian Army through NDA exam but don`t worry because there is still one option available for you.

You can join Army by cracking the CDS examination which is conducted by UPSC.

If you are about to complete your B.Com i.e., if you are in B.Com 3rd year then you can apply for the CDS exam because your age is also 19 years.

So , Friend Prepare well For CDS exam to fulfill your dream to join Indian Army.

IN CDS examination , you will be asked objective type questions ainly from Mathematics, English and General Knowledge and one thing i just want to clear you that the standard of questions are very high , so you have to labour hard if you want to crack this exam.

For more details regarding CDS exam , you can visit : http://www.upsc.gov.in

Hope the information will help you.

Hi friend...


Its really nice that even being a girl,you are interested to join Indian Army which most of the girls even don't think of.


As a girl,though you are not eligible for NDA but there is no need to worry because


the Girls can join INDIAN ARMY through other entries called

CDS(Common Defence Services)
TGC(Technical Graduate Course)
AFMC(Armed Forced Medical College)

The Girls after clearing the CDS exam will join OTA for the Training and After clearing the AFMC,Girls have to join AFMC,pune.

The Girls can also be a pilot in INDIAN AIR FORCE.

So friend you must first complete graduation in any stream to join INDIAN ARMY through OTA and after clearing CDS exam and SSB you will be called for the admission.


Now,let me introduce you about CDS:-

CDS stands for Combined Defence Academy and the exam for CDS is conducted by UPSC (Union Public Service Commission) twice a year.
Through CDS,you can go for:-
1.Air force Academy.
2.Navy Academy.
3.Officer Training Academy.
4.Indian Military Academy.


There is an age limit for CDS.
I am specifying it below:-
1.Air force Academy.- 19 to 23 years.
2.Navy Academy.- 19 to 22 years.
3.Officer Training Academy.- 19 to 25 years.
4.Indian Military Academy.- 19 to 24 years.


Educational qualifiationrequired are:-

For Indian Military Academy/Officer's Training Academy:- You have to complete your Graduation in any discipline from a recognized University,
Final year appearing candidates are also eligible for this examination.

For Naval and Air force Academy:- You have to complete your Graduate degree course with Maths and Physics as a compulsory subjects or you must have complete your Engineering degree course from a recognized University
.

After you qualify the written examination,you will be called for an interview and medical test.

The next CDS (II) exam is going to be held on 16th September,2012.

The last date of receipt of applications is 27 August,2012.

But,since you can't appear for the exam this time,prepare well for the next exam.

If you want to get any detailed information,you can visit the official website of UPSC i.e, www.upsc.gov.in.

Best of luck.

Thanks.
