    Hi Aspirant

    CDS : Stands for the Common Defence Academy

    Upsc is conducting the upsc exam every year

    And the exam format is first a written objective type test

    And after the written test their will be a ssb of 7 days

    Which is the most difficult task and it's very hard to crack it

    So you should have to work very much hard

    Here is the Qualification Required for the Exam:

    -The Candidate should be pass in Graduation from a recognized Indian university for IMA(Indian Military Academy) And OTA(Officer's Training Academy)

    -And for the Indian Air Force Exam the candidate should be pass in Graduation( B.SC With Physics or Maths )

    -The candidate age should be between 19-24 for the IMA

    -The candidate age should be between 19-25 for the OTA

    -The candidate age should be between 19-22 for IAF


    And their is no need of specific % for the exam

    Best of luck

    Hi...friend
    There is no percentage topic in any exam in upsc exams
    See upsc needs any percentage graduates in any stream from any university
    So do not bother about your percentage of marks
    Through cds you can go for the following posts ...i.e.,
    INDIAN AIRFORCE
    INDIAN ARMY
    INDIAN NAVY
    SPECIAL OFFICERS
    So cds is the wonderful opportunity for the graduates looking to serve the country
    You can also write any exam through upsc
    Any way good luck...

    Hi Dude ...


    Actually there is no percentage Barrier to give the C.D.S examination ...

    The one thing you need to put in mind is that .. YOU MUST HAVE A MINIMUM OF GRADUATION ...

    You must have a minimum of 19 years

    And the maximum age is allowed up to 24 years

    And you must be an Indian Citizen


    The only thing you need to Put in your mind is YOU MUST HAVE PASSED GRADUATION

    That is it


    ALL THE GOOD LUCK
