    Hey,

    Its really nice that you want to serve the nation.
    But the eligibility of NDA is 10+2. Your undergraduate degree is not required to be eligible to appear for NDA exam.

    However,
    There are other options that you can opt for.

    You can opt for either Study or Job

    Further Studies:

    If you prefer to continue to studies, you can do Post graduate courses and then obtain a Ph.D. You have lots of options during this P.G course like M.S/ M.Tech, IAS/IPS, Navy/NDA and Finance related courses like MBA.

    You can pursue Post graduation in your field
    M.S/M.Tech:

    Options are:

    GRE/TOEFL for doing M.S in Foreign countries.

    Brief of all the options are

    GRE: The Graduate Record Examination or GRE is a standardized test that is an admissions requirement for many graduate schools in English speaking countries.

    TOEFL: The Test of English as a Foreign Language evaluates the potential success of an individual to use and understand Standard American English at a college level.

    GATE: Conducted by one of seven Indian Institutes of Technology in rotation, Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) is an annual exam for admission to M.Tech and M.S. programmes in most engineering institutes in India

    You can even pursue management courses by doing your post graduation.
    Options are:

    MBA:
    Entrance exams for Post Graduation in Management Courses.

    GMAT: The Graduate Management Admissions Test is used as one of the selection criteria by most respected business schools globally, most commonly for admission into an MBA program.

    Re: Can I appear in NDA entrance exam after completing B.E?

    Dear Friend

    The acronym NDA stands for the National defense academy.This entrance gives you opportunity to join the the different wings of defense like Army ,Navy or Air force.

    The age limit for appearing for the exam is 16.5 to 19 years but I do not think that you will be able to appear for the NDA exam after completion of bachelor's degree in engineering as your will definitely cross the limit of 19 years.

    But if after completion of bachelor's degree your age is less than 19 you will be able to appear for the NDA exam.

    If you are not eligible for it then you can appear for the Combined defense services exam .

    It is also conducted twice every year by UPSC.

    The age limit is 19-25 years.Both male and female candidates can also apply for the exam.

    For any more details ,you can visit www.upsc.gov.in

    Hope the information helps you .If you have any more query regarding this then you can leave your message here.

    all the best

    Re: Can I appear in NDA entrance exam after completing B.E?

    You have completed BE degree so you are applicable for NDA exam but you must fulfill the below given criteria .

    National defence academy is conducted by union public service commission twice in a year to recruits the candidates in Army, Navy & Air Force wings of National Defence Academy.

    Those candidate have completed 12th standard are applicable for NDA Exam Without having Mathematics and Physics subject student are eligible for NDA exam but you can apply only Indian Army post .NDA exam not require any percentage marks of the candidate.

    The candidate age should between 16.5 years to 19 years.There is no age relaxation for Sc/ST candidate . Only unmarried male candidates are eligible to apply. You must have Citizenship of India.

    I think your age is over 19 years old because you have completed BE degree .So you can try for CDS , AFCAT , UES exam .

    Hey friend,

    It is tough for you to join in NDA entrance exam as you have completed B.E which is a UG course,and as per that you would have exceeded the age limit as for the age limit needed for the exam it is 16 1/2-19 years

    You would have a age limit of around 21 years which makes you exceeded the age limit.

    So,you are ineligible for applying for the NDA exam

    If you have doubt about the exam check at the official site of UPSC at http://www.upsc.gov.in

    Hi Friend...

    Dude NDA is the national defense academy which is conducted after the 12th and not after the graduation you need to have completed the 12th then only you can appear and also you should not exceed the 19 years of age for NDA services...

    You can appear only for the CDS examination which is also one of the recruitments which are conducted by the uPSc for the defense sectors recruitments only this CDS examination is also conducted...

    As you had done your bachelors of engineering course of study you can appear for the CDS examination for all kinds of posts as the engineering graduation you have done and some of the recruitments you are eligible for are...
    Indian Navy
    Indian Air force
    Indian Military
    Officers training academy
    These recruitments are eligible for you to appear for the CDS recruitments...

    so after the BE you can appear for the CDS recruitment which is also one of the defense services recruitments...

    REGARDS:

    Re: Can I appear in NDA entrance exam after completing B.E?




    My dear friend.

    NDA stands for National Defense Academy.

    The NDA exam is conducted by UPSC.

    UPSC conducts the NDA exam every year for students passing 12th in Non-Medical stream.

    UPSC stands for Union public Service commission.

    UPSC provides unmarried male students the opportunity to join defense sector after 12th through NDA.

    But only male students aging between 16.5-19 years are eligible for NDA.

    So as you have mentioned that you have completed your Graduation you must be aging more than 19.

    So i am sorry to say that you can't take the NDA exam.

    But if you really want to join the defense wings then you can take the CDS exam.

    CDS stands for Combined Defense Services.

    CDS is also conducted by the UPSC.

    It gives graduated candidates the opportunity to join the defense sector.

    Girls can also take the CDS exam.

    You can join the following defense wings of India after clearing the CDS exam:-

    --> Indian Army

    --> Indian Navy

    --> Indian Air Force


    The main eligibility criteria for CDS is that the candidate must have cleared his/her graduation from a recognized university.

    Apart from that he/she must be aging between 19-24 years.

    The nationality must be Indian.

    For more details about CDS visit the following website of UPSC:-

    http://www.upsc.gov.in

    I hope the information will be satisfactory.

    Regards
    tanveersandhu.

    2.Only unmarried male candidates are eligible.

    3.Candidate's age should be between 16.5-19 years.
