    For NDA exam,you must have Maths and Physics in 10+2.
    Why don't you try for AFMC as you are a medical student.I think that would be a best option for you.

    Unfortunately you cannot give the NDA exam as you have not studied maths.You could have taken PCMB and still given NDA but as you have not done so ,so you cannot give NDA.You require 60% in science stream to be eligible for writing NDA.Maths is compulsory paper of NDA along with Physics and chemistry.There is no scope of biology in NDA.If you have interest in armed forces then you better give AFMC(Armed Forces Medical College),Pune exam to pursue medical there and then get direct job in the armed forces as a doctor.
