    If you have completed 12th standard the you are applicable for Indian Army Exam but you must cleared the NDA exam first.

    Your age now 17 years old , so your age is matched to the NDA criteria.

    NDA stand for National Defence Service Exam.This exam is conduct twice time in a year.NDA Examination is conducted in 3 wings:

    Indian Air Force

    Indian Navy
    Indian Army

    If you have completed 12th standard from recognized board with science department you are applicable for NDA exam.Commerce student are applicable for only Indian Army branch.


    But your age should be in between 16.5 to 19 years.


    Your age now in 18 years old so in the time of NDA exam , your age should be over 19 years.


    So in that stage you are not applicable for NDA exam.Better option for you to try for NDA II exam in 2012.


    Because in this time your age should be below 19 years old.


    Only unmarried male candidate are applicable for NDA exam.You must have citizenship of India.
