Default Re: Want To Join Indian Army After B.Com.

Yes, of course you are eligible for joining the Indian Army. But for that you must appear in the entrance exam called CDS which is Combined Defence Services Examination.
The exam is conducted every year twice.

Eligibility Criteria :
You must be a citizen of INDIA.
You must be a graduate or in the final year of graduation from any recognized University.
Your age must be between:
• For IMA : 19 to 24 Years
• For OTA : 19 to 25 years
• For Naval : 19 to 22 years
• For Air Force : 19 to 23 years.
You must be physically fit.

Exam Pattern:
English -100 marks
General Knowledge -100 Marks
Elementary Mathematics -100 Marks
Elementary mathematics is not for the OTA students.
After that one SSB interview will be taken which will be conducted in Five days .
After clearing the SSB one medical test and then you are selected to join Indian Army as an Officer.
