    Hello,
    Yes you can join army as an officer through upsc with 12th as your qualification.
    But there only one way and that's through NDA exam.
    Applicants to the NDA are selected via a written exam conducted by the UPSC, followed by extensive interviews covering general aptitude, psychological testing, team skills as well as physical and social skills, along with medical tests. Incoming classes are accepted twice a year for semesters starting in July and January. About 320,000 applicants appear for each written exam.

    Yes, you can definitely do so.

    After 12, you can go for defense services.
    there is exam for National defense academy i.e. NDA.

    its exam is conducted twice in one year by UPSC.
    and has two papers: maths and general awareness.

    the eiligibility is:
    you should be citizen of India.
    your age should be between 16.5 to 19 years.
    you should have completed your class 12(or appearing this year).
    if your subjects are:
    physics and maths together- then you can go for air force and navy also.
    if not, then you can go for army only.

    after succesful training in NDA and academy, you
    will be commissioned as an officer as:
    Liuetenant in army,
    Sub liuetenant in navy or
    flying officer in air force(whichever you choose)
