    Hey friend,

    There is no minimum marks which is needed in +2 to write the CDS Exam.

    There is nothing to be regarded with the +2 marks for applying for the CDS Exam

    The education qualification needed for exam is that the candidate must have completed a degree from a recognized university.

    The exam is conducted fr candidates to join in:

    Indian Militaryt Academy
    Indian Navy
    Indian Air Force
    Officer Training Academy

    As you have only completed +2 you cannot apply for the exam as you don't satisfy the education qualification needed.
