    ->The Girls can also be a pilot in INDIAN AIR FORCE.

    ->In the CDS exam they don't have to appear in the Mathematics exam because it is not

    The NDA exam, is conducted every year for recruitment in army,navy,or airforce.
    The guidelines of the exam specifically mention that only unmarried male candidates of 16.5-19 years of age are eligible for NDA.
    So,NO,you are not eligible for NDA,but you can write the CDS exam for which unmarried graduate male/female candidates who have completed graduation are eligible.
    Also,the age limit for CDS exam is 19-24 years.
    Best of luck
