    see for the NDA exam one need to be a 12th passed or 12th appearing candidate with PCM subject or a commerce stream student.

    as you are a bio student you can appear for the NDA exam , but you can only join the Indian Army.

    as for navy and air-force physics and maths are compulsory.

    good luck

    Hey friend,

    You have said that you are a Biology Student but it is not clear that whether you are doing you being a 11th or 12th student.

    As if you being a 12th student with Biology as subject means then you are eligible for applying for the exam as per the education qualification which is needed for the exam.

    And in the other case if you are a 11th student means you are ineligible fro applying for the NDA exam as per the education qualification as you are not satisfying the needed education qualification as the minimum qualification is completed +2.

    The NDA exam is conducted for candidates to join in:

    => Indian Army

    => Indian Navy

    => Indian Air Force

    You can join in these forces with the qualification of yours and with it you need to satisfy the other criteria's also which are the:

    > Nationality

    > Martial Status

    > Age Limit

    > Physical Standard

    TO be descriptive about these criteria's it is that the candidate applying for the exam must have a citizenship in India

    The candidate who is a Unmarried male candidate is only eligible for applying.

    The age limit needed is 16 1/2-19 years

    The candidate appearing for the exam must be Physically fit as it is very important
