    Hi

    I am really sorry to say that NO FEMALE Entry is there in the Indian Defense in the Higher Secondary level. So as of now, being a 18 year old female you CANNOT take part in any of the Defense Exams.

    However if you are really interested to get into the Defense sector, then I would suggest you to take up some 3 year full time graduation now and then later on you may easily apply for the CDS OTA, AFCAT, etc and other such entrances.

    Hope this helps

    Re: Can I join NDA (Indian Army) being a 18 year old female?

    Hello

    NO YOU CAN NOT APPLY FOR THE NDA.

    The problem is that you are a girl and girls are not applicable for the NDA.Only the unmarried male candidates are applicable.So you are not eligible for NDA but can apply after you complete your graduation through CDSE by applying for the OTA branch.

    For more information visit the official website of ARMY.

    Re: Can I join NDA (Indian Army) being a 18 year old female?

    dear aspirant,


    Sorry to say that being a female candidate you are not eligible to

    apply for NDA exam. because NDA exam is only conducted for

    unmarried men.

    Eligibility Criteria For NDA:


    • 12th with Math and Physics

    • your age must be within 16.5 years to 19 years

    • only unmarried men can apply for the exam.


    but if you really want to make your carrier in defence services

    then you can join through UPSC CDS OTA exam in which unmarried

    women can apply. for that you need to complete your graduation.

    Eligibility Criteria for CDS OTA exam:

    graduation from recognized college or university.

    your age must be within 19 years to 25 years

    How To Apply?


    you can apply for the exam online on following link:

    Being a female candidate you are not eligible to apply for the National Defence Academy and this examination is conducted for selection of Army wings , Navy wings and Air force wings and conducted by Union Public Service Commission as namely NDA I and NDA II .

    One must have a completed intermediate course and must have a minimum 16.5 years and 19 years . Final year of 12th exam may also eligible to apply for this examination and Unmarried male candidates are eligible to apply for this examination . So being female candidates you are not eligible to apply for this examination .

    But after completing graduate degree you can chances to get into the Indian Army through NCC Special Entry and Officer Training Academy Examination . Officer Training Academy Examination is conducted by UPSC CDS Examination and minimum qualification for this examination is that candidate must have a completed degree course and age should be between 19 years and 23 years . There is no percentage bar required and No upper age limits .

    For NCC Special Entry you must has completed degree course and must secure at least 50% marks . Pursing in the final year of degree may also eligible and compulsory have a NCC B Certificate in graduate level or Intermediate level and age should be between 19 years to 25 years .

    3. Candidate must be unmarried.
    4. Candidate must be passed his twelfth exam.
    5. Candidate must be under 16.5 to 19
    So,after graduation being a girl you can apply for CDS exam.

    Sorry girl you cannot apply for the NDA examination as because it is for male only and there is no option for the girls to apply for the NDA examination.So it will be better for you to complete the graduation first and then apply for the CDS examination after the same.CDS is basically known as combined defence services examination which is conducted twice in a year to select the candidates in any of the three wings of the defence.These wings are Indian armyindian air force.Indian navy.You need to be a graduate in any discipline for the indian army.But to apply for indian air force and navy you need to be graduate in physics and maths or you can only have the opyion for the indian army.Your age to apply for the same must be like this-19 to 22 for indian naval academy.19 to 23 indian air force academy19 to 24 indian millitary academy.19 to 25 officers training academy.selection procedure for the same is as follows-written examssb interview.medical examination.For more details log on to www.upsc.gov.in thank you.

    But nothing to worry there are many exams, conducted by UPSC and many other defence exams where female candidates are eligible
    You can go to upsc.gov.in for all the details of all the exams conducted by UPSC

    Unfortunately for you,only Male candidates are eligible for NDA exam.If you want to join Defence services,you need to complete your Graduation and then you have many options.You can apply for Army OTA through CDS,AFCAT for Airforce,SSC Technical or Non Technical for Navy and Army.But as an Intermediate candidate you have no option to enter Defence service.Complete your graduation and start applying while in Final year

    Re: Can I join NDA (Indian Army) being a 18 year old female?

    Hey

    I am really sorry to tell you that you can not apply for the NDA exam because NDA exam is only for the male candidates.

    But you should not worry aboiut that you can apply for the defence serices after graduation through CDS exam.

    For CDS exam you must have graduate degree from recognized university and your age must lies in between 19-25 years.
    So you can apply for the CDS exam after graduation.
