    Dear Friend

    CDS is the Combined defense services examinations which is conducted by the Union Public services commission twice every year in the month of february and september respectively.

    It gives you opportunity to join the different academies of defense if you are able to clear all the stages of the examinations and serve for your nation.It includes all the four academies which are :

    1.Indian naval academy

    2.Indian military academy

    3.Indian Airforce academy

    4.Officer's training academy

    Since you are willing to give this examination,so you need to satisfy some of the eligibility criteria for the examinations which are as follows:

    >>Bachelor's degree is the minimum educational qualifications required.Final year graduation candidates can also apply for the examinations.Since you are pursuing your MBBS ,so you are eligible in terms of academic requirements.

    Your main concern is towards age criteria :

    The minimum age required to be eligible for the examination is 21 years and the upper age limit is dependent upon the different academies:

    IMA:24 years

    INA:22 years

    OTA:25 years

    AFA :23 years

    So dear you will be eligible for the CDS exams but for the IMA and OTA only.

    Friend ,the important dates for the CDS 2 are :

    Date of notification:25/05/2013

    Last date of receiving application:24/06/2013

    Date of examination:08/09/2013.

    So if you are interested in giving CDS 2 ,then you can apply for this exam at www.upsconline.nic.in.

    The examination pattern for the CDS exam is as below:


    Note: Both male and female candidates can apply for the examinations.

    Hope the information helps you.If you have any further query then you can leave it here.

    all the best
