    NO, you are not eligible for N.D.A.
    BUT after scoring 60% in graduation
    AND by fulfilling minimum requirment for physical fitness.
    you are eligible for CDSE
    for getting into INDIAN ARMY.

    [COLOR="rgb(255, 0, 255)"]Hello![/COLOR]

    Yes you can give NDA exam if you have below eligibility criteria:>>
    You should have following eligibility for attempting NDA exam:>>
    For male Eligibility for NDA:>>
    >You should be unmarried male .
    >You should have passed 10+2 examination for being eligible .
    >Every candidate applying should have physics and maths as compulsory subject for >Indian navy and air force .
    >Age limit for candidates is 16 years to 19.5 years while training .


    Girls can't apply for NDA Entrance exam Because there is no vacancies or allocation for girls candidates that's why it is conducted only for Unmarried male candidates.
    Girls have different entry schemes for joining Indian Army . I Think you should focus on these schemes .But if you are interested in joining defence then you can apply for the Indian Air force, Army and Navy after the completion of your graduation or B.tech or equivalent. So complete your graduation if you want to join Indian Defence.

    After graduation you can apply through CDSE examination.
    this exam is also conducted by UPSC.
    >>Entry schemes for Girls
    >>TGC schemes.
    >>UES schemes.
    >>CDS scheme.

    To crack in NDA exam you have to take following subjects:>>
    ENGLISH(VERBAL,NONVERBAL,REASONING,COMPHRENSIONS) like
    1)MATHS
    2)HISTORY
    3)G,K
    4)GENERAL SCIENCE
    5)CURRENT AFFAIRS BOOKS

    You fulfill the age criterion as your birth date is 8/11/1994, and the age required by NDA for the candidates should be within the age bracket of 16.5 to 19 years of age, and on 8/11/2013 you will turn 19 years old.

    To apply for any of the three NDA wings, amongst Army, Navy and Air Force, one has to compulsorily be a + pass-out.

    Additionally, for applying to Naval and Air Force wing, one also has to study Physics and Mathematics in +2,
    but for applying to Army doesn't necessitates studying into science stream.

    Thus, as you have done your +2 in commerce, you can apply for Indian Army.

    For that you will need to give NDA exam, held by UPSC twice every year.

    The dates for this year's NDA I are over, but the second exam which will be held in August, you can apply for it.
