    Re: Are females allowed to apply for UPSC CDS examination?

    Hello

    YES FEMALE ARE ALLOWED TO APPLY FOR UPSC CSDE EXAM.

    As you must know that CDSE is a entrance for applying in the four different categories of defense sector.
    ~IMA-INDIAN MILITARY ACDEMY.
    ~AFA-AIR FORCE ACADEMY.
    ~NA-NAVAL ACADEMY.
    ~OTA-OFFICERS' TRAINING ACADEMY.

    Now the biggest disappointment fact here is that as a female you are not applicable for the AFA,NA,IMA.

    Yes it might come to you as a shock but it is true,you can not apply for the three sections,you are only applicable for the OTA.

    The criteria for OTA is follows-

    UNMARRIED WOMEN,WOMEN WHO ARE WINDOWS AND HAVE NOT REMARRIED,WOMEN WHO ARE DIVORCEES AND HAVE NOT REMARRIED ARE ELIGIBLE FOR APPLYING IN THE OTA.

    So you are not applicable for applying in the three but you can apply for the OTA.
