    Hi

    Sorry your not eligible for writing NDA (National Defense Academy) exam.Because Lower age limit for applying NDA exam is 16 1/2 and the Upper age limit is 19 years

    So,it is better to complete graduation and then apply for CDS (Combined Defense Service).But you need to complete your graduation before you cross 24 years,if you complete your graduation within 24 years age only you can join Indian Army.

    Re: Am I eligible to appear in NDA exam at the age of 21 years?

    Dear we are really sorry to say that you are not eligible to apply for NDA examination because you have crossed maximum limit of age required for NDA examination because your age must not be more than 19 years to apply for NDA examination and you have crossed 21 years of age so there is no chance for you to apply for this examination but you may use this time in preparing for another defense service examination that is conducted by UPSC board

    You should prepare for Combined Defense Service Examination but for that you should have completed your bachelor's degree in any stream for IMA and OTA section examination so if you use next two years in degree course then you will complete 2 years of bachelor's degree (Under Three year course) and Final year following candidates are eligible to apply for this examination so there is no problem in applying for this examination while pursuing final year and after 2 years, you will complete 23 years of age that will not be suitable for any other section as INA and AFA but will be enough to apply for Indian Military Academy and Officers Training Academy that are - 19-24 years and 19-25 years so do not worry about your career and start finding good college for admission in degree course and apply for CDS examination after 2 years

    CDS Examination is conducted twice a year that is as CDS I around February and CDS II around September so there will be more chances for you to get qualified for defense job

    All the best

    hi friend.
    sorry to say that the maximum age limit for nda is 19 years (for each and every category) and your age is 21 years so you are not eligible for nda.
    if you have completed your bachelors degree, than you are eligible for cds to join defence,otherwise not.
    the maximum age limit for cds is 25 years, so if you have not completed your graduation yet complete it first and than apply for cds.
    all the best.

    Re: Am I eligible to appear in NDA exam at the age of 21 years?

    Sorry 21 years old candidates are not eligible for NDA examination.

    The age limit for NDA is 16.5 to 19 years and only unmarried male can apply for it.

    The selection will be based on the following stages:

    -Objective Test

    -SSB Interview

    -Medical Examination

    Those in merit will be selected for the academy.

    As you are not eligible for NDA you can apply for Non Officer posts.

    For Non Officer posts the age limit will be 17.5 to 23 years and the selection will be based in the written exam, physical fitness test and medical examination.

    You can also complete Graduation and then apply for examination like CDS and AFCAT.

    Re: Am I eligible to appear in NDA exam at the age of 21 years?

    Dear friend sorry to say you are not eligible to apply NDA exam at the age of 21 years.

    Because the age limit for apply NDA exam is 16.5 years to 19 years.

    But your age is 21 years.

    So, you are not eligible to apply NDA (National Defence Academy) exam.

    Good luck.......
