    You have wrong information . Yes , Commerce candidate cal apply for NDA exam .But you can not apply for Indian Navy and Indian Air force , You can apply only in Indian Army post . The details of NDA exam is given below - The pattern for NDA exam is given below , So if your 12th standard have mathematics then you have chance to take some advantage for written test for NDA exam . If you have completed 12th standard with Physics and Mathematics then you can apply all wings conducted by upsc otherwise you can apply only Indian Army post .Final year of 12th standard can also apply here .There is not require any kind of percentage marks in 12th . Your age should be in between 16.5 to 19 years old .You have citizenship of India .Only unmarred male candidate can apply here.

    Re: Why commerce students are not allowed to attempt NDA written exam?

    hi dear,

    you are going wrong. Commerce students can also apply for NDA exam. but the thing is that you can apply for the posts in Indian Army only. you can't able to apply for the posts in Indian Navy or Indian Air Force.

    because for Air Force and navy you need 12th with Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics or equivalent and for Army you need 12th in any discipline from recognized board or College . you can also apply for the exam while pursuing in 12th.

    NDA stands for National Defence Academy. The exam is conducted by UPSC twice in a year named NDA-I and NDA-II. The exam is conducted only for unmarried male candidates.

    for NDA your age must be within 16.5 years to 19 years. there is no relaxation for any category.


    you have to apply for the exam online on:

    Good Luck....

    Re: Why commerce students are not allowed to attempt NDA written exam?

    Commerce student can apply for NDA exam but only for army wing

    this is because for air force and navy candidate must have a good background of maths and physics as air force and navy both are technical so maths and physics are compulsory for those candidate

    so if you being to commerce stream then apply to army wing in NDA

    to apply to ARMY WING from NDA yo must qualify the following terms

    1. candidate must be unmarried male
    2. candidate must have 12th passed degree with any stream
    3. candidate must be citizen of INDIA
    4. age limit : 16.5 - 19 years

    or more detail you can visit the offical websit as:

    Re: Why commerce students are not allowed to attempt NDA written exam?

    dear friend,
    commerce students are eligible to appear for NDA examinations but they can join only Army because educational criteria for joining Air force and NAvi is that one must have passed class 12th examination in 10+2 pattern with mathematics and physics as compulsory subjects in class 12th board examinations.

    So commerce students can definitely for NDA but can only join army.

    The other criteria are:-
    >Candidate must be an Indian.
    or all
    >Candidate must not be married

    >Candidate's age limit for appearing in NDA exam is 16.5 to 19 years for all categories.

    Thank you and all the best

    Re: Why commerce students are not allowed to attempt NDA written exam?

    Hi
    I would like to remove this conception that the commerce students cannot give the upsc NDA exam,
    There are three wings in the NDA exam, indian army, navy and the indian air force.
    For chosing the indian army and navy wing, you need to be a 12th class passed/appeared but for the indian air force wing, you need to be a 12th class passed/appeared and you should be having physics and mathematics as your main subjects in your class 12th.
    Gud luck

    Dear friend,

    Your information is wrong, Commerce students are too eligible for appearing in NDA Exam.

    Though they don't have Physics and Mathematics as their subjects, but they can appear for NDA Exam.

    Among four wings of NDA:

    >> Army

    >> Air Force

    >> Naval Academy

    >> Navy

    They can apply for Army wing of NDA Exam only.

    According to latest eligibility criteria of NDA Exam II 2013,

    >> Only Unmarried Male Candidates can apply for this exam.

    >> Age of the candidate must lie between 16.5 to 19 years or you must have born between 02-01-95 and 01-07-1998.

    >> You must be 10+2 passed/appearing from any stream.

    Re: Why commerce students are not allowed to attempt NDA written exam?

    Hello dear,

    Definitely a commerce student is eligible for NDA exams.

    But a commerce student can only join the Indian army wing of National defense academy, he/she is not eligible for the for the Indian air force or Indian navy.

    For Indian navy and Indian Air force you should be the student of science.

    The eligibility criteria for NDA exam is:

    1. nationality - Indian
    2. age - between 16.5 yrs to 19 yrs.
    3. you should be male candidate.
    4. you should be unmarried.

    best of luck.

    The minimum age must be "" 16.5 "" years

    Maximum age is allowed up to "" 19 "" years


    Only Unmarried male candidates are eligible to appear for the exam

    Must be Physically Fit and also Mentally Good

    Re: Why commerce students are not allowed to attempt NDA written exam?

    No my friend you have some wrong information about NDA eligibility.

    Every Indian citizen eligible for the NDA exam.

    A commerce student also eligible for the exam but only for the Army wing .

    The criteria for the NDA exam is below :

    => one must have minimum 12th passed from any recognized board in any field.

    => For navy & air force wing one must passed the 12th with maths as one of the subject.

    => Age limit : 16.5-19 years , no age relaxation for any reserved cast.

    => Only unmarried male candidates are eligible.

    So above are the criteria that one have to fulfill for giving the exam.

    So you can eligible for the exam.

    The exam having two papers.

    1) General Ability
    2) Maths

    Those who qualify in the exam will be called for a SSB interview.

    So start the preparation for the exam and give it.

    Thank you...

    Re: Why commerce students are not allowed to attempt NDA written exam?

    Friend, since the NDA the paper is held for the students who have completed their 12th with the PCM as their main subjects because the NDA question contains the questions of Maths,Physics and Chemistry in it, therefore the commerce students can't answer these properly.
    The commerce students can join the Army,Navy or Air force by giving the CDS exam after their graduation. The CDS(Common Defence Services) exam is be given after graduation in any field.
    NDA is between the age of 16.5-19 years.
    The CDS is given in the age of 19-24 years.
    I hope you would have got the answer to your question.
    ​ALL THE BEST...

    Re: Why commerce students are not allowed to attempt NDA written exam?

    Dear There,

    It is wrong information you have that Commerce students can not apply for NDA examination. NDA examination is conducted every year twice in the months of April and August. The NDA examination is conducted by the UPSC to recruit candidates in the three wings of Indian defense.

    The three wings are
    :

    * Indian Army

    * Indian Navy

    * Indian Air force.

    All the eligibility criteria for three wings are same but candidates with PCM as compulsory subjects in 10+2 are eligible to apply for Indian Navy and Indian Air force Whereas candidates who have 10+2 in any stream can apply for Indian Army.

    Age - 16.5 to 19 years.

    Sex - Male

    Marital Status - Unmarried

    Citizenship - Indian

    You must have to satisfy the above four eligibility also to be eligible for the examination.

    Thanks.

    Hai,

    That's really a wrong information friend, commerce students are also eligible for NDA exam. But commerce students are eligible for only Indian Army academy.

    The required qualification is a candidate who are completed their 12th standard with PCM subjects are eligible for Indian Navy and Indian AirForce academy.

    Percentage is not important.

    Age limits of the candidate should be in between 16.5 years to 19 years.

    No relaxation.

    Re: Why commerce students are not allowed to attempt NDA written exam?

    Being a commerce student you can apply for the NDA exam but for the Indian Army only..

    As Indian Navy or Air Force requires maths in 12th so you are not eligible for that...

    To apply for this exam you must have following criteria to be satisfied..

    Education eligibility: 12th passed under a recognized board.

    Age Limit: 16.5 to 19 years.

    There is no relaxation in age to any category.

    Nationality : Indian.

    Only male candidates are eligible to apply for the NDA exam.....
