    Re: Can I give CDS exam while pursuing B.Com 5th semester?

    Graduates can apply for UPSC CDS exam. The eligibility criterion for this exam will differ as per the particular defense domain that you plan to join. B.Com graduates can apply in Indian Army. Lower age limit to apply for CDS exam is 19 years. 24 years is the maximum age so as to apply in Army. You can attend UPSC CDS exam while doing 5th semester of B.Com course. But, you need to produce documents relating to proof of graduation if they get selected in written exam. Physical test and personal interview will be the last round of selection process involved in.
