    Re: What is the criteria of appearing for the CDS exam?

    UPSC conducts the CDS examinations every year for recruitment of eligible aspirants to fill in the vacancies in the Government sector. Those who clear the test and the interview thereafter can expect employments in Indian Military Academy or Naval Academy. Through the test, one can also get placements in Air Force Academy or Officers’ Training Academy. As you are pursuing the 3rd year of engineering graduation, firstly complete the course with good percentage. Engineering graduates are qualified to apply for the CDA test. It is not so easy to clear the test. As it is a really hard one, you have to prepare really well to clear the test and interview. Only unmarried male candidates can apply for the same. In addition, you should be a citizen of India. The age limit varies for different posts. Visit the official website of UPSC for knowing more about the CDA test.

    Since you are doing the B.Tech, you have to complete the course with good percentage of marks. For appearing many of the courses after degree, you need to gain good marks. They choose only male candidates who are single. The age limit differs for various posts. You can apply for the CDA test, as you are an Engineering graduate. As it is a difficult test, you have to prepare well. CDS tests conducted by UPSC every year for staffing qualified candidates in the public sector. After the examination, you have to appear for the interview. After completing these processes, you will get chances in Naval Academy or Indian Military Academy. For getting more details, you can go through the website of UPSC.

    CDS entrance exam is conducted by UPSC every year ,they conduct the exam to recruit the right people to the govt. sector .The exam which is conducted by UPSC is not that easy to clear ,the exam is tough and competitive .Once if you are passed then you have to appear for the interview , if you successfully pass in interview also then you will be selected for job .You can get job in Indian military ,Indian navy you can also get placement in the air force academy .
    Since you are pursuing your 3rd year engineering graduation you should concentrate more in your studies ,along with that you spend little time for the preparation of CDS exam , as i told that the exam is tough and competitve you have to prepare very well to succeed in the exam .
    One more thing you note that your age should not exceed 24 for Indian military
    and should not exceed 23for air force age should not be more than 21 for Naval
