    My dear friend.

    CDS stands for Combined Defense Services.

    It is a well known defense sector exam.

    Students who are in final year graduation or have done their graduation are eligible for CDS.

    Since you are in your final year you are eligible.

    CDS exam is conducted every year by UPSC.

    UPSC stands for Union Public Service Commission.

    It helps graduate students to join the following defense wings of India:-

    --> Indian Army

    --> Indian Navy

    --> Indian Air Force


    The other main requirements for CDS are given below:-

    --> You must be aging between 19-22 years for Indian Naval Services.

    --> You must be aging between 19-24 years for Indian Army Services.

    --> You must be aging between 19-23 years for Indian Air Force Services.

    --> You must be having Indian Nationality.

    --> Girls can also apply for CDS.

    --> No minimum percentage in graduation is required.


    For more details visit the following website of UPSC:-

    --> http://www.upsc.gov.in

    I hope the information will be satisfactory.
