    • Hi...friend
    • Depend on your qualification the age limit should be declared
    • You can go for army in two ways i.e.,
    • By writing NDA exam
    • By writing CDS exam
    • both are come under upsc but the difference is age limits
    • If you have below 19 years then you may go through writing NDA exam
    • depend on your cutoffs you may go for army ,navy or air force
    • If you have above 21 years with graduation in any specialization
    • Then you may apply for CDS exam
    • here also you should go for army ,navy and air force
    • NDA exam needs 10+2 qualification
    • any way good luck ..
