    Hello friend,


    UPSC stands for Union Public Service Commission.


    It is an organization which allow the students to get an admission in civil services.


    As there are three types of civil services:

    1.Indian Army
    2.Indian Navy
    3.Indian Air Force



    You can apply for NDA as well as CDS under UPSC to enter into the field of civil services.


    NDA stands for National Defense Academy and it is an entrance exam which is used to get an admission into civil services after completion of 12th.





    You can check the UPSC at the following site:

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


    Check the online application form at following link:
    http://www.upsconline.nic.in/


    The main thing is that girls are not eligible for NDA.Only unmarried males are eligible for it.


    Eligibility criteria for NDA:

    1.You must be an Indian.

    2.Your age should lies between 16.5 to 19 years.

    3.Your eye sight should be correct i.e.6/6.

    4.You must be physically fit.

    5.Girls are not eligible for it.

    6.Only unmarried males are eligible for it.


    And if you qualify the NDA entrance exam then you will be called for the final interview and you will be admitted into the civil services for which you are eligible or which you want.

    You can either go for Indian Army,Navy or Air Force but the thing is that Arts and commerce students are eligible only and only for Indian Army and are not eligible for Navy and Air Force.

    But the science students are eligible for all the three civil services.Once you have been admitted into any of the civil service,then you will get a training regarding this and after that assign the duties to you according to your position.



    Thank u!!
