Yes, you can apply for NDA exam 2017. Only candidates who have age between 16.5 to 19 years can apply for NDA exam. As your age will be 19 years so you can apply for it. But make sure your DOB falls between the defined criteria of NDA exam. Defined DOB criteria for NDA Exam (II) 2016 was 2 January 1998 and 1 January 2001. NDA Exam (I) DOB criteria has not released yet.
