    Hi dear

    I have mixed news for you.
    The bad one is that you are not eligible for the NDA/NA Exam.
    And the good one is that you can still write SCRA Exam (provided you satisfy other eligibility conditions for the Exam).

    Actually NDA/NA exam is only for Unmarried Male candidates.

    The eligibility criteria of SCRA Exam is as follows:

    Nationality: Indian

    Academic Qualification:
    Intermediate or Senior Secondary (12 years) Examination under 10+2 pattern of School Education or equivalent with Mathematics and at least one of the subjects Physics & Chemistry as subjects of the Examination in 1st or 2nd Division.

    Age limit: 17-21 years

    Good luck.....

    Re: Can girls appear in the UPSC exams like NDA and SCRA after 12th?

    No my dear friend,

    Girls ca not apply for NDA after 12th because according to UPSC,the girls are not eligible for NDA after 12th.They can only apply through CDS entrance exam after graduation course.

    Girls can apply for civil services after graduation.As there are three types of civil services that comes under both NDA and CDS entrance exam.

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

    NO.jpg


    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!!

    Re: Can girls appear in the UPSC exams like NDA and SCRA after 12th?

    Friend, as far as NDA Examination is concerned, there is gender based restriction. That is, only boys are allowed to appear for NDA Examination and girls are not considered eligible for NDA Examination. If a girl wishes to join the defence force, then has to apply for CDS Examination or AFCAT only after completion of graduation in any discipline.And as far as SCRA Examination is concerned, both boys and girls are considered eligible. If any candidate wishes to appear for SCRA Examination, then he has to satisfy following eligibility conditions mentioned below:# Indian national.# 10+2 or its equivalent from the recognised board.# Must have taken the subjects Physics & Mathematics at 10+2 level.# Must be in the age limit of 17-21 years.# Must be physically fit.
