    CDS exam conducted twice in year by UPSC.Since you have just appeared in your +2 examination so you are not eligible for this exam.Because this exam requires a bachelor degree , but you are not graduate so you are not allowed to appear in this examination.If you want to give this exam so first you have to complete your graduation in BE/B.tech degree so that you can give the CDS exam.

    No 12th Class passed candidates cannot apply for CDS ( Combined Defense Services ) Examination.
    To sit for CDS Examination you must be a graduate.

    Dear if you are interested in Defense Services after 12th standard than you can go for this but you will have to apply for NDA ( National defense accademy ) examination.

    Both CDS and NDA Examination is conducted for joint defense services ( Army ,Airforce and Navy ).
    But for CDS Exam : Graduates candidates are eligible to apply .
    Age limit : 19 years to 25 years

    And for NDA : Intermediate completd can apply .
    Age limit : 16.5 to 19 years .

    So you are eligible for only NDA examination.......

    Thanks
