    No, you cannot apply for CDS exam while pursuing B.Tech second semester. UPSC conducts CDS exam to select candidates for the three defense wings. Since you are pursing B.Tech, you can apply for any of the defense wings after completing B.Tech. Minimum age to apply for this exam is 19 years. Only those who are graduates can apply for CDS exam. You need to prepare for areas such as English language, Reasoning, Numerical Ability, GK etc. You need to appear for Medical test and Personal Interview if you clear written test.
