    Re: Can I apply for NDA at the age of 22? Am I eligible with BPC Background?

    No, You are Not Eligible for NDA examination, Because you have not fulfill the age eligibility Criteria.

    To Apply for NDA Examination, Your age should between 16.5 to 19 years, But You have 22 years now, So Sorry You are not eligible for NDA examination.

    So, Please apply for some other examination. But you have not completed your graduation, other wise you can apply for UPSC Civil services examination.

    So, I will suggest you please complete your graduation course first and then you are eligible for UPSC Civil services examination and for Bank PO Examination.

    But Sorry, You cant apply for NDA Examination, For more information , please visit the UPSC website.

    The age limit for NDA is sixteen and half to ninteen and half so you are not applicable for NDA. After completing graduation you will be eligible for CDS exam so if you want to enter in defence prepare for that.
    ALL THE BEST

    Re: Can I apply for NDA at the age of 22? Am I eligible with BPC Background?

    No,you can't apply for NDA Examination.Because the candidate age should be 16.5 - 19 yrs of age at the time appearing and only unmarried male candidates are eligible.The Union Public Service Commission will hold the National Defence Academy and Naval Academy Examination twice in a year for admission to Army,Naval and Air force posts.So If you are interested in defence service then go for the CDS Exam.The candidate should have a bachelor Engineering degree from a recognized university Or Equivalent Examination and you can go for the Civil service exams also.....

    for the case of NDA exam your age should be between 16 to 19.5 years but now your age is 22 so you are not eligible for NDA exam.

    your educatinal qualification criteria is matched but age criteria is not matched .

    so you are not eligible for NDA exam.

    all the best.
