    Yes you are eligible to apply for the National Defence Academy examination. But you can only apply for the Indian Army not for the Indian Air force and Navy. Because for the Indian Air force and Navy a candidate should have Physics and Maths at 10+2, thats why you are not eligible to apply for the Indian Air force and Navy.

    The age limit required for the NDA examination is between 16.5 to 19 years.

    Re: Can I join NDA with Commerce?

    The minimum eligibility to join in NDA is to pass out 12th with 55% marks .Once if you are passed out then you can apply for the NDA . There is an entrance exam for the candidates who would like to join in the NDA .After clearing the exam you will be called for the interview ,and after there is a physical test ,if you successfully clear all the field then you will be selected for the training .
    Please note that since you are from commerce back ground you can join in only army secession , and there is an advantage for the students from science stream , they can join in either for army ,navy or air force .The minimum age limit is 16.5 - 19 years .
