Default Re: Which entrance exams to appear to join Indian Army?

There are various entrances for Army based on the qualification. After 10+2 there is NDA and after Graduation there is CDS examination.

As you are 20 years old you are not eligible for NDA exam and also girls are not eligible for NDA exam.

You are doing MBA and you are graduate hence you can definitely apply for CDS examination.

For CDS exam you must have age between 19 to 25 years if you want to join Indian Army.

CDS is a combined defence services exam . So if you have done your Graduation in physics or maths or engineering then you are eligible for Navy and Air force along with Army.

You have to pass some obstacles to become an army officer. The first one will be a objective type paper which you have to pass if you want to give SSB interview.

SSB interview will be of 5 days duration in which there will be group test , psychological tests and personal interview.

If you pass above test then you have to pass medical examination. If you fail the medical fitness test then you will not be considered for the Army.

If you pass the you will be send to training.

There is Women special entry scheme for NCC 'c' certificate holder after graduation . So if you have the same you can apply for this entry .
