    Re: My age is 19 yr 1 month. Can I apply for NDA exam-2013?

    Hello Dear,

    No dear, you can't because your age is 19 year and 1 months that means you crossed the upper age limit of NDA exam so you are not eligible for NDA exam.
    Valid Age limit for NDA exam is MIN. 16.5 year and MAX. 19 year.

    But if you want to go in the defence sector then wait for some time after completing your graduation you are eligible for CDS exam.
    cds exam is also conducted by UPSC twice in a year,
    Eligibility Criteria For CDS is
    candidate should be completed graduation
    For Indian Military Academic candidate should be 19 to 24 year
    For Officer Training Academy candidate should be 19 to 25 year
    For Naval candidate should be 19 to 22 year
    For Indian air force candidate should be 19 to 23 year.

    BEST OF LUCK

    Re: My age is 19 yr 1 month. Can I apply for NDA exam-2013?

    Friend,It is unfortunate that you are presently not eligible for NDA Examination. Because you have crossed the prescribed maximum age for NDA Examination.Maximum age fixed for NDA Examination is 19 yesrs. And your present age is exceeding the age of 19 years.If you are so willing to join defence forces, then you can apply to CDS Examination after graduation.Presently you are intermediate. So you can even apply to Open Recruitment Rallies conducted by Indian Army from time to time for following posts: * Soldier General Duty * Soldier Clerk * Soldier TradesmenAge limit required for above mentioned posts are: * 17.5 - 21 years for Soldier General Duty * 17.5 - 21 years for Soldier Clerk * 17.5 - 23 years for Soldier Tradesmen

    Re: My age is 19 yr 1 month. Can I apply for NDA exam-2013?

    dear aspirant,


    sorry to say that you are not eligible to apply for NDA exam as you have crossed the upper limit for the exam. NDA stands for National Defence Academy.

    For NDA your age must be within 16.5 years to 19 years and you must have attained the lower limit and not have attained the upper age limit.

    Eligibility Criteria for NDA:

    [FONT=Arial] Educational Qualifications[/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial]For Army Wing of NDA[/FONT] [FONT=Arial]12th Class pass of the 10+2 pattern of school Education, or equivalent.[/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial]For Air Force and Naval Wings of NDA and for 10+2 (Executive Branch) Course at Naval Academy[/FONT] [FONT=Arial]12 th Class pass of the 10+2 pattern of school Education with Physics and Mathematics, or equivalent[/FONT]

    [FONT=Arial]Age-limits[/FONT] [FONT=Arial]16-1/2 - 19 Years[/FONT]


    but if you really want to go to defence services then you can get the jobs in Defence through UPSC CDS. the CDS exam is conducted for graduates. So you have to first complete your graduation to write CDS exam.

    Eligibility Criteria for CDSE:

    [FONT=Arial]Educational Qualifications:[/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial]IMA & OTA[/FONT] [FONT=Arial] Degree of a recognized University or equivalent[/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial]Naval Academy[/FONT] [FONT=Arial]B.Sc. with Physics & Mathematics or Bachelor of Engg[/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial]Air Force Academy[/FONT] [FONT=Arial]B.Sc. with Physics and/or Mathematics or Bachelor of Engg[/FONT]


    [FONT=Arial]Age-limits:[/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial]19-24 Years[/FONT] [FONT=Arial] Indian Military Academy[/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial]19-22 Years[/FONT] [FONT=Arial] Naval Academy[/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial]19-23 Years[/FONT] [FONT=Arial] Air Force Academy[/FONT]

    Hello my Dear Friend ...


    I am really Regret to Say this

    You are not eligible to appear for the exam


    Because YOUR AGE IS MORE THAN THAT IS REQUIRED

    The minimum qualification must be " 12TH " class from a recognized university


    You must have a minimum of " 16.5" years

    Maximum age is allowed up to " 19 " years

    You must be an Indian Citizen

    Only Un married male candidates are allowed to eligible to appear for the exam


    Girls are not eligible to appear for the exam

    So Since your age is more than 19 years you are not eligible to appear for the exam


    GOOD LUCK

    Dear user

    You can not apply for Nda as you did not satisfy the eligibility criteria.
    For Giving NDA you should be between 16-19 years of age and you have exceeded that limit.
    So i would suggest you to complete graduation in any stream from recognised university and then apply for CDS.

    Good luck

    Re: My age is 19 yr 1 month. Can I apply for NDA exam-2013?

    hi
    the age 19 years is the maximum age limit for giving the NDA exam and now as you have turned to be 19 years and 1 month old, hence you’re not allowed to give the exam.
    Because the NDA exam is conducted by the upsc twice in an year and upsc is very strict with its rule and it is strictly said by the upsc that even if you are even a single day over the age limit, then also you are not allowed to give the exam
