No, you are not eligible to apply for upcoming NDA Exam.

As per upcoming NDA exam age criteria, candidates born after 2 July, 2000 and before 1 July, 2003 are eligible.

As your DOB is 23rd March, 2000 so you are not eligible. This age bracket will shift further so you won't be able to appear in NDA exams in future.

However, you can apply for CDS exam after graduation.

Yes. You are eligible to apply for NDA Exam for the year 2019.

Below is the required age criteria to apply for NDA Exam of 2019.

Candidates should be in the age group of 16.5 years to 19.5 years. To be more simple, candidates who are born between 2nd Jan 2000 and 1st Feb 2003 are eligible.

Since your date of birth falls within this range, you are meeting the required age criteria for NDA Exam.

In addition to age criteria, you should also meet the required academic qualification.

This NDA Exam is the common written exam for the candidates to make entry into various Defence services like
Army wing
Navy wing
Air Force wing

In order to be eligible to apply for Army wing, candidates should have completed 10+2 with any of the stream.

But to be eligible to apply for Navy and Air Force wings, candidates should have completed 10+2 with Mathematics and Physics as the compulsory subjects.

Candidates who are appearing for 10+2 Exams also can take this exam but they should be able to show to proof of passing in 10+2 when they appear for Interview.

The applications for NDA-I Exam will be available from 9th Jan 2019 and you can submit the same till 4th Feb 2019.

Have good preparation for the Exam and crack it.

NDA refers to National Defense Academy and to join the same one is required to qualify NDA entrance examination held by UPSC twice every year.

Further, the NDA 2019 examinations i.e; NDA I 2019 and NDA II 2019 will be held for offering admission in NDA courses commencing from 02 January 2020 and 2nd July 2020 respectively and as per the age criteria for joining NDA, your age should be under 19.5 years by the commencement date of NDA course.

So, having born on 2nd March 2000, you are not eligible for appearing in NDA 2019 as your age will exceed 19.5 years by the commencement of NDA courses 2020.

For more details regarding the same examination, you can refer to the link www.upsc.gov.in.
