    hi
    I am sorry to say that at the age of 21 years, you are not allowed to give the NDA exam.
    Because for giving the NDA exam, it is required that you should be a 12th class passed/appeared and your age should be in between 16.5-19 years.
    And as your age is 21 years, therefore you are not eligible for giving the exam

    Dear There,

    No you are not eligible for NDA examination at the age of 21 years.

    This is because the age limit for the NDA Exam is 16.5 - 19 years for all candidates with no relaxation given to any candidate by the Union Public Service Commission.

    The NDA Examination is conducted every year twice by the Union Public Service Commission.

    The NDA Exam is conducted in the months of April and August as NDA-I and NDA-II.

    The NDA Exam is conducted in the following phases :

    1) Written Examination

    2) SSB Interview

    3) Personal Interview

    The Minimum educational qualification required for NDA Exam is 12th in any stream from any recognized board.

    So , It will be better for you to try for CDS Exam.
