    You are not eligible to take the exam this year. Combined Defense service exam is conducted by UPSC. A large number of people opt for this exam. This is the one of the ways for the graduate to be in the most reputed service in our country. The basic educational requirement is Bachelors degree in any discipline. For the Naval academy one should have engineering degree and for the Air force academy Engineering or Physics and mathematics in the graduation level. There are some age limits set for the aspirants. For the army wing the aspirant should be in the age between18-23 years. For the naval it is 20-23years and that of air force the candidates must be in the age between 21 and 23 years. Also only unmarried male candidates are eligible to apply for the IMA, INA and AFA. So you should prepare for it now and can apply for the 2012 exam when open.

    As you are a second year, graduate student you cannot attend the examination this year. UPSC carries out the Combined Defense service exam. Many students are applying for the Combined Defense service exam. The eligibility needed for a candidate to apply for the exam is a Graduation in any stream. There are specified age limits for those who are applying for this exam. The aspirants who are applying for the Army wing must have an age between 18 to 23. Those who are opting for the Naval should have an age between 20 to 23years. Female aspirants cannot apply for the exam. The candidates should be unmarried for applying the AFA, IMA and INA. Therefore, you can attend the Combined Defense service exam next year.

    Hey friend,

    [COLOR="rgb(65, 105, 225)"]No,a second year doing candidate cannot apply for the CDSE Exam as per the criteria's framed for the exam regarding the education qualification needed.[/COLOR]


    The reason behind is that the candidate appearing for the exam must have satisfied all the qualification needed for the exam and as per that you are lacking in education qualification

    The needed education qualification for the exam is that the candidate must have completed a degree from a recognzied university with a fair percentage.

    The CDS exam is conducted for candidate to join in:

    >> Indian Military Academy

    >> Indian Navy

    >> Indian Air Force

    >> Officer Training Academy


    For joining in these forces you need to satisfy the criteira's for the exam

    If you are wishing to join in IMA or OTA just by completing a degree in any discipline is enough but for joining in Indian Navy you need to have complete a degree in Engineering.

    In the case of joining in Indian air Force you need to have completed a degree with Physics and Mathematics as subjects,

    Age Limits:

    For IMA : 19-24 years

    For Indian Navy :19-22 years

    For Indian Air Force ;19-23 years

    For OTA : 19-25 years


    Out of this you need to have a citizenship of India and must be Physically fit to be eligible along with the above mentioned criteria's.
