    Dear Friend

    Let me tell you that the minimum age limit of the NDA examinations is 16.5 years and the maximum age limit is 19 years .

    According to my estimation,after completing your bachelor's degree in engineering in mechanical stream,you age must be more than 19 years.So it is not possible for you to appear for the NDA examinations.




    If your age is less than 19 years then only you can go for the NDA examinations.

    If you are so keen in joining defence then kindly go for the CDS examinations.

    As you have completed your bachelor's degree ,so you are eligible for it.

    Kindly apply for the CDS examinations at www.upsonline.nic.in


    The important dates for the CDS2 examination are:Date of notification: 25/05/2013

    Last date of receiving application: 24/06/2013

    Date of examinations:08/09/2013.


    Hope the information helps you.

    all the best

    No, it is not possible to you bcoz NDA exam only base of 12th level candidates but you are also Mechanical Engineer.
    So, you can't apply for it. For this exam candidates should be 12th pass out only.



    Thanks

    friend,
    as per nda rule you can give nda exam after passing 12th and must have attained a age of 16.5 to 19 yrs ....
    if you satisfies above requirements then you are allowed to give the exam .
    but as per your qualification you are highly qualified for this exam .
    so you will not be allowed to give this exam ..........

    best of luck .......with regards

    Hello,
    Sorry friend but you can apply for NDA after B.E since you must be overage. And to appear for NDA & NA Exam your age must lie between 16.5 yrs to 19 yrs.

    If you are so eager to join Defence then don't be upset you can apply for CDS Exam. CDS stands for Combined Defence Forces.

    ==============================================

    Hi,

    See the eligibility criteria for NDA exam is as follows-


    1)12th class pass of the 10+2 pattern of school education or equivalent
    with Physics and Mathematics, conducted by a state education board or
    a university and also Students who are appearing in the 12th class
    under 10+2 pattern of school education or equivalent examination can
    also apply for this examination.

    2)Students who are appearing for the NDA exam must be unmarried
    males. They must be atleast 16 1/2 years and not more than 19 years
    on January 1st or July 1st of the year subsequent to the year of the
    exam.



    Now by the time you have completed your B.Tech,it is more or less certain that you must have crossed the age of 19 years.
    Hence you cannot sit for the exam.

    But if in case you have not attained that age,then you can surely sit for the exam!

    Bye!

    Hello

    You must go through the criteria for applying in the NDA exams.

    ~The candidates must have completed 10+2 passed with physics and maths for air force and navy and with army with any stream.
    ~Age limit-16.5 to 19 years.
    ~Only unmarried male candidates are applicable.

    Hence you see that the age limit is the biggest issue that you have to deal with,the qualifications are ok but the age limit is the biggest factor.

    You have completed BE degree in Mechanical Engineering so you are applicable for NDA exam but your age should be in between 16.5 to 19 years old.

    From my point of view your age is over 19 years old because you are now graduate candidate so you are not eligible for NDA exam .

    Better option for you to first complete your graduation degree then you can apply for CDS and AFCAT exam.

    In both exam , engineering graduate candidate are applicable.

    Sorry friend,

    You are not eligible for NDA exam because age required for NDA exam is 16.5 to 19 year and I think you have completed it. But don't worry there are a lot of options to join Defense job. You can go for CDS, MES exam and Air force, Navy and Indian Army separately recruit candidates for engineering cadre and age required for these exam is 19 to 24 years.

    Thanks
