    Hi Aspirant

    CDS : Stands for the Common Defence Services exam

    And the exam is conducted by the upsc department twice

    In a year and as a commerce graduate you can write the exam

    No doubt bu the main problem is your age which is i think around 25 years

    But you have not give your exact date of birth

    But here i am giving the full criteria required for the exam

    Educational Qualification :

    -The Candidate must be a graduate from a recognized university

    - The final year candidates can also appear in the exam

    -The candidate should have maths and physics as subjects in 12th class for IMA And Indian naval


    Age Limits :

    -The age of the candidate should be between 19 to 24 for IMA

    -And for the Officer's training academy it should be 19 to 25


    Attempts :

    -Their is no limitation on the attempts

    Best of luck

    Dear..

    You are not eligible for the exam as the AGE LIMIT is 19-24 years only. And you said that you were born in 1987 that means your age is more then 25 years as of now so that means you have crossed the limit.

    No need to dishearten yourself as you can do many things apart from CDS. You can still join Army if you want to do so. You can try your luck in different sector also. It might be possible that you have something better then CDS available in your career..

    I wish you all the best for your future.

    Cheers...!!!
