    Yes you are eligible for the exam.

    The CDS exam held two times in one year. Under the Cds exam you got the job in different-2 department like as

    1. Officer Training Academy
    2. Indian Military Academy
    3. Air Force
    4. Navy


    You want go with the army. Then you give the preference of the Indian Military academy.

    The age limit for the IMA exam Indian Military Academy age limit is: 19 to 24 Years.

    Your age 24 years in the Dec 2013, till date you can give the both exam means cds-1 & 2.

    There is no age relaxation for the reserve category.

    Qualification is required for the IMA exam:-

    Candidate must have passed/appear in the graduation in any stream from the recognized university.

    dear friend,

    UPSc conduct the CDS exam for defence services. It is conducted for following categories:
    1. INA
    2. IAF
    3. IMA
    4. OTA

    Eligibility Criteria:

    Educational Qualification:

    • IMA and OTA: Graduation
    • INA and IAF: B.Tech or B.Sc in Physics & Mathematics

    Age limit:

    • INA: 19 years to 22 years
    • IAF: 19 years to 23 years
    • IMA: 19 years to 24 years
    • OTA: 19 years to 25 years.
    you must have attained the lower limit on 1 July and you must not have attained the age of upper limit on that date.

    so, in 2013 you can apply for IMA and OTA exams.

    In CDS there is no reservation for reserved category candidates.


    Good Luck.......
