    Re: Can a MBA guy apply for NDA?



    NDA and MBA-
    No you can not how lets talk about it..?-
    Here is the eligibility of the NDA exam-
    AGE-
    16 half to 19 years
    For the SC/ST-16 half to 19 years
    And for the OBC-16 half to 19 years
    And talking about the qualification required for the appearing in the NDA exam so if any candidates have the 12th class passed out with Physics chemistry and Math subject means to say that if they belong to Non Medical field and also have greater then 60% marks in order to appearing for the NDA exam in the 12th class..
    So as I think that you have completed your 12thclass and you are currently in the MBA course so if you have above qualifications means to say that you are have above qualification but you don’t have or you not comes under the above age criteria so you are not eligible to apply for the MBA exam but you can apply for the CDS exam which is also a way to enter in the Air Force you can give that exam if your age is not completed 30 years then you are eligible for that exam..

    dear friend.
    nda- national defence academy.
    the maximum age limit for nda is 19 years.
    you have completed your mba so your age must not be less than 21 years, so on the basis of age you are not eligible for nda.
    if your interest is towards defence than you can go for cds ( combined defence service).
    all the best.
