    Yes off course it is possible for to join Indian army after completing your graduation and if you are 26 years of age.There are two main examinations which can help you
    to enter into the profession.These exams can be explained as follows:
    1)CDS(Common defence services)-

    This exam is conducted to select candidates who are suitable for entering into this profession.As this is a challenging and demanding profession there is a rigorous selection
    procedure to clear this examination.Firstly there is one written test which is also a tough one and one needs to practice a lot in order to clear the test.
    After clearing this written test you would be required to clear one physical test where you would be required to pass through a number of different
    stages consisting of difficult physical acts.

    2)SSC(Short service commission)-

    This is another exam through which you can enter into this profession and which can realize your dream to become an army officer.If you cleared this exam you would be
    given a certain post for a certain number of years after that you would be required to clear a exam after which your service period would be extended.
    The procedure adopted is more or less same which is in the CDS examination.
