    There is no percentage required to apply for the CDS examination so you should not need to focus on these kind of things because this will make you away from your target so you need to decide the targets before you like to go for the CDS examination .
    Basically CDs explains that a graduate in any discipline will be able to go for the indian army.
    But if he or she like to apply for the air force and navy then they need to have the engineering or the graduation with physics and maths for the same.
    Minimum height for the boys in the CDS exam is required 157cms for the male candidate and 152cms for the female candidates.
    So there is no need to worry for the same if you have completed the graduation because there will be no hurdle in your way.
    Kindly see the eligibility criteria for the same as follows-
    CDS stands for the combined defence services examination conducted by UPSC to select the candidates in defence services.
    Qualification-
    Graduate in any discipline from a recognised university can apply for the indian army.
    graduate in physics and maths or engineering can apply for the indian air force and navy also.
    Age limit-
    19 to 22 years for the indian navy.
    19 to 23 years for the air force.
    19 to 24 years for IMA.
    19 to 25 years for OTA.
    Candidates should be unmarried male or female.
    Selection procedure-
    Written test.
    SSB interview.
    Medical examination.
