    Minimum Eligibility Criteria Required for Combined Defense Service Examination 2013

    Indian Military Academy : To apply for this section assessment, you should have passed bachelor's degree examination in any discipline of a recognized university or any other equivalent qualification. Your age should be minimum 19 years but must not have attained the age of 24 years

    Indian Naval Academy : Aspirants must posses a degree in any discipline of engineering from a recognized university and age limits are - 19-22 years

    Indian Air Force Academy : To be eligible for AFA section examination, you should have a degree with physics and mathematics as mandatory subjects or a degree in engineering (any branch) from a recognized university or institute. Age should not be less than 19 years and more than 23 years

    Officers Training Academy : Graduation in any subject from a recognized university and age should be between 19-25 years

    All those aspirants who are pursuing final year of graduation or appearing for final year examination or awaited for final year result may also apply for this examination. You are pursuing a degree in Engineering that is to be completed in minimum 4 year but you are in third year so we are sorry to say that you can not apply for this examination while 2013

    This year's CDS I was conducted on 17th of February 2013 and CDS II is going to be conducted at 08th of September 2013 so you will not be eligible to appear for upcoming CDS II examination because of your educational qualification but do not worry because CDS is conducted twice a year around the same time mentioned above so you can apply for next year CDS II examination after completing your third year of degree and coming in final year of Engineering.

    If you wants to get job in defense sector then this is the only right way for you that you start study of all subjects asked in this exam and complete your grounding before examination of CDS II 2014 and you can use these books in your preparation to get better result :

    TATA McGraw Hill - General Knowledge for Combined Defense Service
    TATA McGraw Hill - Elementary Mathematics for CDS Examination
    TATA McGraw Hill - English Language for UPSC CDS Test I and II
    Arihant Publication - Pathfinder CDS and Previous year Solved Papers
    RPH Editorial Board - Study Guide and Practice Work book for CDS Test
    Disha Experts - CDS Preparation Guide
    Datason RP - CDS Examination Guide
    GK Publications - Combined Defense Service Examination with Previous year and Model Test Papers

    There are many books available in market for CDS and related competitive examination but you just have to use only those books that provides genuine study material with detailed knowledge because you have to study in depth for each subject to get selected according to the vacancies so scoring higher marks in examination will lead you everywhere so you have to utilize these books in a right way and give more time

    You are in third year so you have complete one year to appear for CDS II 2014 that is why this is your golden opportunity that you do not have to let it go just like that. Take some time from your study of college or university and start giving at least 2 hours everyday for CDS preparation because beginning stage demands less time but you should keep your time increasing after somedays.

    When you learn all basics of this exam then you need to decide separate time for each subject and give minimum 1 hour everyday for all subjects asked in examination that are - English Language - 100 marks, General Knowledge - 100 marks and Elementary Mathematics - 100 marks and all questions will be asked in multiple choice pattern so you have to prepare according to that

    Practice will give you advantage in examination so mainly focus at Elementary Mathematics in case of practice and revision should be mandatory for both English Language and General Knowledge section to be perfect and sure for every single topic and questions

    Prefer syllabus before using a book because if you will follow official syllabus then you will go to a right way but if you leave that way and start using books without any knowledge of syllabus then it would not be very good in your preparation so follow genuine syllabus available in the official notification after that find out all things same in book and get prepared

    While pursuing graduation in Engineering, this is not easy to prepare for CDS test because all examinations conducted by UPSC board requires hardcore and in depth preparation that can only be done by a person who is dedicated only for preparation and having no tension of any exam so you also have to manage your time with graduation because that should be first and CDS should be second so try to use your time in positive works and do not waste a single second of your life because this is prestigious time so we should utilize that

    You wants to know about the service and best section so I would like to tell you that there is no section that is not good for candidates because before everything, you should know that CDS comes under the Defense Ministry of India that is working under Central Government of India so first of all you will get the rank of Central Government Employee in Defense Department then your designation will be decided according to your preference means if you go through Indian Military Academy then you will be posted to serve the country and perform your duty in Indian Army and if you get job in INA section after your preference then you will have to serve under Indian Naval Force and same for Air Force jobs so first you have to analyze about all departments of this test and if you see anyone that may be good for you so you can give preference for that and start preparation

    You are from Engineering stream and Engineering candidates are demanded in INA or AFA section so I would like to suggest you to enter in any one of the INA or AFA because your knowledge should be utilized in a right way so these two sections will be better for you now you have to take decision according to your interest and work hard to get that position

    All the best
