    Re: Can females from science stream join NDA?

    Intermediates can apply for the NDA examination. They are required to have completed the course from a recognized University. Only Indian citizens are eligible to apply for the test. Aspirants should be aged above 16 years as on the notification date. However, they should not exceed 19 years of age. In addition, they should not be females and should be unmarried candidates. As you are a female aspirant, you are not eligible to attend the NDA test. The NDA site has all the information regarding this. You should try the OTA scheme as that is only way females can enter this stream.

    Re: Can females from science stream join NDA?

    It is possible for females to join the defense service sector. However they cannot join through the NDA scheme. This option is not available to females. If a female want to join for this stream basically they will need to go through the OTA scheme. For this they need to first complete their graduation. After that they will need to appear for entrance exams. Like other options in the OTA scheme it is a must that the candidate should be fit physically. Also other than the OTA scheme they can join after 12th standard through the NCC. They will need to have 2 years of experience in Senior Div Army. They must have secured atleast a 'B' Grade in 'C' Certificate Exam. For details information is available in the official site of Indian Army.

    No, currently there is no provision for female candidates to join the NDA.
    Only unmarried male candidates between the age of 16.5-19 years are eligible.

    However, if you want to join the defence forces, then I suggest that you can appear for the
    CDSE or the Combined Defence Service Examination.The CDSE is conducted by the UPSC every year.
    It is for the selection of graduates to the various defence forces.

    Eligibility:

    Unmarried male and female candidates can apply.

    Educational Qualification:

    Candidate must be a graduate in any discipline.
    Students in the final year of graduation can also apply.
    Candidates who wish to apply for the Air Force or Navy,
    must have physics and Maths at 10+2 level.

    Age Limits:

    For IMA:19-23 years.
    For AFA:19-23 years.
    For Navy:19-22 years.
    For OTA:19-25 years.

    Education Qualification
    Candidate should be graduate in any discipline. For the Air force and Navy they should have physics and maths at 10+2.
    Final year candidates are also eligible for this exam.

    Age Limit
    Candidate age should be between
    For IMA 19 - 24 years

    For NA 19 - 22 years

    For AFA 19 - 23 years

    Re: Can females from science stream join NDA?

    No, Girls are not allowed to join NDA examination, Only Unmarried Males Are eligible to apply for NDA examination.

    For NDA examination, your age should between 16.5 to 19 years and you have to passed your intermediate examination.

    Because Intermidate is the minimum eligiblity to apply for NDA examination. But the girls can join the army by women special entry or through CDS Examination.

    So, You have to complete your graduation with atleast 60% marks, only then you can apply for SSC, and if you have clear the SSC Interview, Then you will get chance to join army.

    But NDA examination is totally for Unmarried males. The NDA II examination notifcation was declared and the last date of apply for NDA II examination was 09/May/2011.

    And the entrance examination was going to be held on 21/Aug/2011. And if you want to get complete information, then please visit the official website of UPSC -
