    Re: Can I apply for NDA for 2012 course?

    As per the requirements a candidate beyond 19 years of age cannot apply. You will be over 19 years by the time of the exam in 2012. So you will not be eligible for the course. There are other options to the defense field. For that you will need to first complete graduation. You can choose any of the areas of your choice. If you choose to do your graduation in any of the technical areas then you must complete your engineering. Else after graduation you can appear for the UPSC exam. There are also opportunities for law graduates and also post graduates. So choose any of the areas where you like and appear for the entrance exams when you reach the final year.

    The UPSC conducts the NDA entrance Examination. The basic eligibility is plus two from the recognized university. There are also some medical and physical requirements. As per the UPSC requirement for the NDA candidates must be below 19 years. Since you born in 1993 you will not be eligible to take the exam conducted on the next year. But you are eligible to take this year. You donot wish to appear this year then it is advisable to complete graduation first. Now you can go for the graduation in the interested field. Then can take the OTA exam for the career in the Defense academy.

    UPSC will conducts the NDA examination 2 times in Year. And to apply for NDA examination, you have to complete your Intermediate first and your age should between 16.5 to 19 years. And in next year you have cross your age limit, then you are not eligible to apply for NDA examination in next year, because in 2012 you have cross the age of 19 years. But please dont worry, i will suggest you, just complete your graduation first and then apply for UPSC examination. If you are not eligible for NDA examination, then please apply for UPSC examination and to apply for UPSC examination your age should between 21 to 30 years. And if you want to get complete information regarding UPSC examination Or More about NDA examination, then please visit the UPSC official website OR read the given attachement -

    No you are not eligible to apply for the National Defence Academy examination in the year 2012. Because for the NDA examination a candidate age should be
    between 16.5 to 19 years at the time of training.

    Since you are over age at that time thats why you are not eligible to apply for the NDA examination in the year 2012. For more information on NDA examination
    you can visit the official web site of UPSC which is
    www.upsc.gov.in

    Hey friend,

    NDA-National Defence Academy.


    NDA exam is conducted by UPSC and it is held 2 times in a year.

    You have born on 2nd March 1993 as it dosen't satisfy the eligibility criteria framed by NDA.So you are not eligible for the exam.You can check the eligibility criteria for the exam.

    Eligibility criteria:

    The candidate should be a unmarried male candidate and should have born after 2nd July 1993 and not later than 1st January 1996.

    As you have asked whether you could join in Indian Air Force,the qualifications which they seek are.

    Education qualifications:

    For Army Wings:

    The candidate must have finished his +2 with (10th +2) pattern in school education.

    For Army Force and Naval Wings:

    The candidate must have finished his +2 with (10th +2) pattern in school education and must have physics and mathematics as subjects.

    The main thing is that the candidate must be physically fit while appearing for the exam as the physical standards seek for it while appearing.

    Thank you.

    Re: Can I apply for NDA for 2012 course?

    Dear,
    I think that you will not be eligible for it because in 2012 you will cross the age of 19 years and the minimum eligibilities for joining NDA is as follows:-
    1.) Age limitation should be within 16.5 to 19 years.
    2.) Only unmarried male candidates are allowed.
    3.) 10+2 pass students with physics , chemistry , maths .
    4.) Minimum height should be 157 cm with 5cm chest expansion.
    5.) Eyesight should be 6/6 of both the eyes.

    Had you been fallen in this category , you had been eligible for that but sorry to say that you are not eligible.
    Thanks.

    Re: Can I apply for NDA for 2012 course?

    National Defence Academy exam is conducted by UPSC twice a year.

    Eligibility Criteria for NDA:

    - Only unmarried male candidate can apply.

    - You must have age above 16 1/2 years and below 19 years.

    - Must have passed or appeared in 12th board.

    So as you are not even satisfying age criteria of NDA- 2011, so you are not eligible for NDA- 2012 also .

    But don't get upset you can apply for Indian Armed force services after completing graduation through CDS examination conducted by UPSC twice a year.

    or if you go for B.E/B.Tech than can apply for direct Service Selection board(SSB) interview.

    But in Airforce you have to appear in written exams like EKT and AFCAT.

    For complete detail about NDA, please go through attachment.

    And for direct recruitment by Armed Forces the please visit official website of Indian Airforce, Army and Navy.

    All the Best...

    yes you can apply for nda exam in 2012.
    But if you surely want to join the defence service then the best option is to join the NCC camp and go through that.
    It's a easy procedure than giving the NDA exams.

    Now you can not apply for the NDA exam as you are not full filling the age criteria ,The maximum age limit is 19 1/2 years .If you are very much interested in going to go for defence services then you have got some other entries also after your graduation also from any discipline like Bcom,BCA ,BBA ,BA and others ,there are some entries like TGC entry ,UES entry ,SSC technical and SSC non technical entry,you can directly apply for the SSB exam through these mentioned entries.Fir these entries the age criteria ranges from 21 years to 27 years.

    Yes!! You are not eligible for NDA 2012 course .As the minimum eligibility to apply for this exam is that your age should be not less than 16.5 years and should not exceed 19.5 years. So,
    you can definitely apply for this as you are completely suiting to the minimum eligibility requirement. Other areas in which
    you have to work hard are physical and mental fitness.
