    Friend,
    There isn't any difference between CDS-1 and CDS-2.
    Only they come twice in a year.
    CDS -1 comes in every february, where as CDS-2 comes in every september.
    You are eligible only if you are graduate.
    You have to first crack written exam and then ssb interview.
    According to their result you will be eligible for training in army,navy or air force institute.

    Dear student,
    Except the fact that the two examinations are conducted in two different time periods of an year,there lies no difference between them.
    While CDS-1 is conducted in February,the CDS-2 Exams are conducted in September.They are all but the same.

    Qualification in the WRITTEN & SSB INTERVIEWS COULD HAND YOU WITH A POST UNDER THE CENTRAL DEFENCE.
    It depends upon you to choose whether you want to get associated with GROUND BATTLE ARMY,NAVY OR AIR FORCE once you qualify these.

    Good Luck.
