    There is no percentage restriction in CDS. One needs to have passed Graduation in the relevant stream to be eligible for CDS exam.
    And always keep in mind there is no relaxation based on CASTE wise reservations for any defence jobs. There is no reservation or relaxation in eligibility,physical,medical, selection etc for any SC/ST/OBC or any one else.
    The marks required to be eligible for CDS is pass marks in the degree of graduation.

    Re: Minimum requried percentage in graduation for general, SC, ST candidates to be eligible for CDS exam?

    First of all i want to inform you that UPSC hasn't mentioned any percentage criteria for CDS examination.So if you are having a Degree with just pass marks in it then also you will be eligible for CDS exam.

    So apply for CDS exam without worrying about your Graduation percentage. You should only concentrate on the examination and be well prepared for it because the selection will be on the basis of performance in the exam conducted by UPSC.

    Age must be between 19 to 25 years for CDS exam and there isn't any age relaxation on the basis of caste and gender .

    The exam will have a written exam in its first stage. If you perform well in the written exam then you will be shortlisted for SSB.

    SSB is Service Selection Board and its conducts the interview for selected candidates. It is of 5 days duration and there will be various group tasks and interview.

    The marks in written and SSB taken together will decide the merit for selection into the academy. If you are in merit and pass the medical exam then you can join the academy for training. After completion of training you will become officer in Indian Defense.

    Re: Minimum requried percentage in graduation for general, SC, ST candidates to be eligible for CDS exam?

    Firstly I would like to show you which UPSC has not pointed out any portion considerations for CDS examination.So should you be developing a Level with only cross markings within it subsequently also you may be entitled to CDS exam.

    And so apply for CDS assessment without the need of concerning relating to your Commencement percentage. You need to exclusively discuss the examination as well as be well well prepared correctly mainly because the choice will be judging by functionality inside assessment conducted simply by UPSC.

    Era need to be amongst 19 for you to 25 ages for CDS assessment as well as there is not ages young and old leisure judging by caste as well as gender.

    The examination are going to have an itemized assessment in the initial stage. Should you do well inside published assessment you will subsequently be shortlisted for SSB.

    SSB is definitely Support Collection Aboard and its conducts an interview for determined candidates. It is actually connected with 5 nights length as well as you'll encounter several team tasks as well as interview.

    The actual markings within published as well as SSB obtained with each other will probably decide the worth for assortment in to the academy. If perhaps you're in worth as well as cross the health care assessment then you can certainly join the academia for training. Immediately after finish of training you will end up official within American indian Defense.
