    Re: What are the essential qualifications for CDS exam?



    My dear friend.

    CDS stands for Combined Defense Service.

    It is a well known exam.

    CDS helps students to join the defense wings of India after graduation.

    There are basically 3 defense wings of India:-

    --> Indian Army

    --> Indian Navy

    --> Indian Air Force.


    CDS exam is conducted by UPSC.

    UPSC stands for Union Public Service Commission.

    UPSC conducts another exam called NDA for students passing 12th to get into the defense sector.

    NDA stands for National Defense Academy.

    Here is the requirement criteria for the CDS exam:-

    --> The candidate must have done graduation from a recognized university.

    --> The candidate must be having Indian Nationality.

    --> The candidate must be aging between 19-24 years of age.

    --> The candidate should be physically fit.

    --> The candidate should have an eye sight of 6/6 with glasses.


    Girls can also give CDS exam unlike the NDA.

    For more details about the CDS exam visit the following website of UPSC:-
