    Re: Qualification required for CDS examination?

    Eligibility Criteria is following for CDS Examination - Combined Defense Service

    There are three sections under CDS examination which requires separate eligibility criteria

    IMA - Indian Military Academy : Degree in any discipline from a recognized university and final year pursuing or final year result awaited or final year examination appearing candidates are also eligible to apply and age should not be less than 19 years and more than 24 years

    You can give your preference for more than one sections means if you have completed a degree in engineering then you may also prefer for IMA section with INA so your choice depends on you that what you prefer for your career and I would like to suggest you to choose any one and go towards that and make your career better because defense is only the sector where Indian government budgets more than any other sector in India and provides various type of facilities which are not available in any other sector so that this is the right way and right time to serve the country

    Examination Pattern for Combined Defense Service examination

    Elementary Mathematics - 100 marks - Objective type
    English Language - 100 marks - Objective type
    General Knowledge - 100 marks - Objective type questions

    All the best
