    As you passed 10th standard you can go for the 12th standard. The basic qualification for applying the NDA exam is a passing in 10+2 standard from a board or equivalent university. For air force and Naval wing, you should have taken 10+2 with Mathematics and Physics. The candidate should be a citizen of India. Only male aspirants can apply for NDA. Physical fitness is needed.

    With your present profile you are not eligible to apply for the NDA exam. The NDA exam is carried out and controlled by UPSC. The basic eligibility for sitting in the NDA is plus-two. The minimum age limit is set to be 16 and maximum is limited to be 19 . If you are selecting the science back ground you will be eligible for all the wings of defense academy. If you are going to have a commerce background you can only apply for the Army wing. The written test follows the physical and medical test. The candidates should meet some physical as well as medical requirements to pass the test. The qualified students then called for the group test and personal Interview. For more details you can visit the official website of UPSC.

    Hey friend,

    NDA-National Defence Academy.


    You cannot apply for the NDA exam right now because you can only apply for the exam only after finishing your 12th exam as the eligibility criteria says.

    Eligibility criteria says that only unmarried male candidates who are born not before 2nd July 1993 and not later than 1st January 1996.

    For Army Wing of NDA:

    The candidate must have passed his +2 with (10th +2) pattern by the school education.

    For Air force and Naval wings of NDA:

    The candidate must have passed his +2 with (10th , +2) pattern conducted by school education with physics and mathematics as in their subjects.

    Most of which you must be physically fit when appearing for the exam.

    For more information regarding the exam check at UPSC site.

    NO, you cant apply for NDA..
    you should either be appearing or have passed 12th to appear in it..
    moreover your age should be between 16.5 to 19.5 years..
    since you just passed 10th i believe you do not fulfill the age requirements too..
    for details visit upsc.gov.in...
    Thanks..

    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. This criteria is set up by UPSC. So, if you are within the required age limit , then you can apply for NDA. there is a bright career in this direction.
