    Dear friend,

    NDA exam is conducted by UPSC.

    Those candidate have completed 12th standard are eligible for NDA exam.

    But your age must be in between 16.5 to 19 years.

    Your age now over the criteria age so you have to try for graduation degree.

    After graduation you are eligible for NDA exam also.

    Thanks
