    hey friend
    you can apply online for CDS exam in july or oct.
    there is no % criteria for this exam.
    but there is a age qualification which you can confirm from www.upsc.gov.in
    but as you have posted your date of birth you are eligible only for OTA.

    yes u r
    The eligibility criteria will vary depending on whether you plan to join army, navy or airforce. Also it will vary depend on whether you are male or a female. Like for the Navy engineering degree is a must. For the OTA scheme any graduate can apply. There will be questions from mathematics, general knowledge and English areas.

    dear friend,
    for CDS exam you need to be graduated in any stream from a recognized university,

    if you wish to join indian air force through CDS exam then you should have subjects like physics and mathematics in graduation.

    also along with that your age should lie between 19 to 24 years .

    as your date of birth is 9-11-1987 ,
    so your age is exceeded the age limit required for the CDS exam,
    so your age is not eligible for the upsc exam
    you cannot apply for the CDS Exam,

    dear CDS exam is conducted twice every year,
    to know the notification regarding the upsc exam you can go to commissions website www.upsc.gov.in

    all the best

    Re: Am I eligible to appear in CDS exam after passing B.Sc(Maths)? In which paper can I give this exam?

    combined defense services examination is one of the two examination conducted by upsc
    for the jobs in the three main armed forces of INDIA namely
    INDIAN ARMY,INDIAN AIR FORCE,INDIAN NAVY.

    the basic requirement to appear in this examination is graduation

    on the basis of your educational qualifications you are fully eligible to
    apply for the upsc CDS examination being B.Sc(mathematics) graduate
    .

    but as your age is about 26 years as per your present age,
    you will not be permitted to appear in the CDS examination
    as the age limit to apply for the CDS examination is 19-25 years.

    so if you are general category aspirant
    then you can not apply for the next upsc CDS examination.

    but if you belong to OBC or sc/st category then you can appear in the CDS examination
    as there is an age relaxation for the OBC and the SC/ST category aspirants .
    the age relaxation for the obc category aspirants is 3 years so
    the age limit for them to apply becomes 19-28 years.
    while for the SC/ST category aspirants the age relaxation is of 5 years and
    the age limit for them is 19-30 years .

    there is no percentage criteria to apply for the CDS examination
    so you need not to worry about your marks in graduation.

    the next CDS examination will held on 17th FEB 2013.
    but the notification for this examination will be released by upsc on 10th NOV 2012 .

    through this examination you can aspirants can appear for
    IMA(Indian Military Academy)
    OTA(Officer's Training Academy
    AFA(air force academy)


    the age limit for the IMA(Indian Military Academy) is 19-24 years .
    the age limit for the OTA(Officer's Training Academy) is 19-25 years .
    the age limit for the AFA(air force academy) is 19-22 years .


    you can apply for the IMA and OTA if you belong to OBC or the SC/ST category.
    while for AFA you need to be a SC/ST category aspirant.
