    Dear aspirant,
    Graduate in any discipline can apply for the CDS examination
    to join indian army.
    and graduate in physics,maths or engineering can apply for air force and navy.
    as you are a 10+2 passed student and also a 2008 passed out
    you are not able to apply for the NDA and CDS as well, better for you
    if you complete the graduation then only you can apply for the CDS examination.
    -for CDS your age should be as follows.
    for air force academy 19 to 23 years of age.
    for indian navy 19 to 22 years of age.
    for indian millitary academy 19 to 24 years of age.
    for officers training academy 19 to 25 years of age is required.
    -you must be physically and mentally fit to apply for the same.
    -candidate of india can only apply for the same.
    -you should not have any criminal records.
    -selection procedure would be start with the
    written examination after that

    Dear
    Sorry to say you are not eligible for the cds exam, because you are not graduate.
    even you are not eligible for the NDA exam Which is based on the +2 class. The age limit for the NDA exam is the 16.5 years to 19 years. According to me you start your graduation then you are eligible for the exam like as the
    SCRA exam
    Civil Service Exam.
    CDS Exam.
    IES Exam
    IFS exam.

    For more information please update with the www.upsc.gov.i.n
    Best of luck

    Hello

    NO YOU CAN NOT APPLY FOR THE CDSE EXAM.

    The CDS exam is a entry for the all three wings of the defence as it names as Combined Defence Service Examination,the name only will make its purpose clear,but the issue is that you need to be graduate minimum to apply for the CDSE exam,the intermediate passed candidates are not qualified enough to apply for the CDSE.

    The biggest fact is that you have to be known that on the basis of 10+2 qualification,UPSC only conducts two exams SCRA and NDA.
    SCRA is for the entry for the mechanical engineering degree study at the Indian Railway Institute of Electrical and Mechanical Engineering,Jamalpur,after you complete the course you will get the posting as a high ranked officer in the railways.

    The educational qualification required is 10+2 passed with mathematics and any one subject between physics and chemistry.
    Age limit-17 to 21 years.

    NDA-the entrance for all the three wings of the defence that is in the air force,navy,army.As you can apply for all three wings of the defence through NDA,the physics and maths in 10+2 is necessary for navy and air force and for army through any stream.
    Age limit-16.5 to 19 years(at the time of commencement of the course).

    You check out the qualification and the age,if you find yourself eligible then apply for it.
    For more details visit the website of the UPSC.
