Being a student of final year of BA ( Bachelor of Arts ) degree course, you are certainly eligible for joining Indian Military Services i.e; Indian Army as far as the educational requirement for the same is concerned.

Further, to join the same you need to qualify CDS ( Combined Defense Services ) examination held by UPSC twice every year to join IMA wing of CDS.

--> The minimum qualifications required to join Indian Military Academy are as below :-

* You must hold the citizenship of India.

* Your age must lie within 19 years to 24 years.

* You must have completed your bachelor's degree course in any discipline from a recognized university. Students pursuing final year of their degree course are also eligible.

* You must hold the physical fitness as per the service requirement norms.

For more details regarding CDS entrance examination, you can refer to the link www.upsc.gov.in while for details regarding various career opportunities available in Indian Army, you can refer to the link www.joinindianarmy.nic.in.
