You are pursuing first year of bachelor's degree in commerce, so you are at present not eligible to appear for any entrance exam that will give you opportunity to join Indian Defense Sector.

However during your final year of bachelor's degree in commerce, you will be eligible to appear for the Combined Defense Services exam.

Commerce candidates are eligible for Indian Military academy and Officer's Training academy.

The age limit for IMA is 19-24 years and for Officer's Training academy age limit is 19-25 years.

Both unmarried male and female candidate can apply for the course.
