  • Those candidates who have yet to qualify in the 12th class or equivalent examination and are allowed to appear in the UPSC Examination should note that this is only a special concession given to them. They are required to submit proof of passing the 12th class or equivalent examination by the prescribed date and no request for extending this date will be entertained on the grounds of late conduct of Board/University Examination, delay in declaration of results or any other ground whatsoever.

Age Limit:

Well the official age limit for joining NDA is 16½ to 19½. But let me clear this fact that this is incomplete information you people are having. Most of the people would be thinking that they can appear for NDA till they are 19½ years old, but this is a myth. Now the thing is that you can appear for the exam till 18½ years because the age limitation is for the day you join NDA or we can say at the day you step in NDA you should be less than 19½. After the written exam, you have to go through SSB interview, and finally if you can make up to that and you get recommended you are required to join NDA before you turn 19½ years. After the exam notification whole procedure of exam, SSB, and allotment of joining date are of about 1 year.
