For more information about the NDA, UPSC Exam, you can view the official website
    www.upsc.gov.in

    NDA exam takes place twice a year by UPSC. This is a written exam, which you can enter the armed forces after 12, after clearing the SSB class and get the name of the merit list.
    Those who wish to join the Naval Wing and the Air Force to physics and mathematics as their major subject in class 12th
    Candidates who will appear at the Grade 12 or equivalent examination may submit an application for this exam.
    Age of the candidate must have atleast 16 1/2 years and not more than 19 years at the time of filling the application form.
    NDA: National Defence Academy examination was conducted and the cancellation of the Civil Service examination held twice a year to request a review you need to complete their Intermediate examination since it was minimal Eligiblity criteria to apply for NDA examination. Those who are pursing the last 12 in the control, may also apply for the NDA examination. So if you're ready for its 12th exam you are eligible to apply for NDA examination.

    This year, the NDA, the investigation was already completed and those who are interested can apply for NDA examination of the following year, the investigation was to be held next year or 15/April/2012.

    Notice of the NDA-2012 Exam 31/Dec/2011 had to be published and the last date to apply for this investigation was 30/Jan/2012.

    Notice of Examination NDA was going to be published in Employment Newspaper Or UPSC website, so wait for the notification of this examination, and then apply online or offline, offline application form can be obtained directly form the Post offices in India, but I suggest you apply for the NDA, UPSC Exam Online By visiting the website.

    Eligible candidates can apply for any one of the Wings - WINGS ARMY, AIR FORCE NAVAL wings and wings.

    For Army Wing of 12 must complete investigation of any stream in the form of a recognized board. But the Air Force and Naval Wings, you need to complete on 12 examination in physics and mathematics as compulsory subjects.

    Dear aspirant,

    You should be atleast 10+2 pass to be eligible for defence services.


    So if you really want to join the defence then i will advise you to pass atleast 10+2 so that you are eligible for NDA exam which is conducted for recruitment of officers in Army , navy and air force.


    The selection in NDA exam is based on objective type paper and SSB interview.


    If you not interested in officers post then there are non- officer post also but for that also you should be 10+2 pass.


    10+2 is nowadays lowest level of education so study hard and pass 10+2 then apply for defence.


    BEST OF LUCK.....

    Re: What is the Eligibility Criteria to apply for NDA exam? Can I apply after an age of 18 years?

    NDA: National Defense Academy.

    UPSC will hold the NDA exam twice a year.

    The minimum eligibility for NDA is you must complete the Intermediate from any recognized university.

    And your age should in between 16.5-19 years.

    You must be citizen from India.


    So you can go for NDA exam........
