    hi,

    eligibility criteriya for cds prefers 'age' as well as you with your graduation degree in your hand irrespective of 'what'degree you are having.
    But since diploma is not considered equivalent to graduation degree, you shoul first grab that, a lot of facilities are there for you lik distance learning program,one-sit graduation.....etc.

    ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA FOR CDS 2011:
    -age: for officers training academy.born not earlier than 2july,1987 and not later than 2july,1993
    - condition for eligibility:

    WRITTEN TEST this year will be on 18 sept.

    you can refer to EMPLOYMENT NEWS or ROZGAR SAMACHAR, a weekly newspaper for any doubts,if any left uncleared for CDS dated 7-13 may

    GOOD LUCK!!!!

    As you are a diploma holder, you cannot apply for CDS exam. The basic qualification for applying the CDS exam is a bachelor’s degree. The applicants must have scored good percentage of marks in the Bachelor’s level. Only male applicants can write the test. The applicant must be an Indian. The aspirants must be unmarried. There are age limits for different positions. UPSC conducts the exam for I.M.A. and Officers’ Training Academy, Indian Naval Academy and Air force academy. The same is conducted every year. More details are available in the official site of UPSC.
