    hi,
    dear friend,
    as you mentioned in the question that your age is 18 year that means you are still be able to go for NDA , because the eligibility criteria for NDA is :-
    1. the cabdidate must passed class 12th with minimum of 60% marks scored.
    2. the candidates age must lie in between 16.5-19 yrs.
    3. the candidate must be physically fit .
    4. only the unmarried male candidtes can apply for the exam.
    5. the candidate must be the citizen of india.

    and if you exceeds your age limit , then go for CDS(for AIR FORCE 19-23 yrs) but for this exam you have the graduation degree with minimum of 60% marks scored.

    so, all the best...............

    Re: Tell me about ways to join NDA despite of exceeding maximum age limit?

    Dear..

    The details of NDA is as follows :-


    You have asked a question that become a very common fear among the candidate who are going to give the exam of NDA. As we all know that NDA stands for National defence Academy and it is a exam conducted for candidate who wish to make a career in the Field of Indian Air force, Indian Army or in Indian Navy. The exam is conducted twice in a month and the minimum criteria for the exam is as follows:-

    Eligibility :-

    1. Candidate must have 16.5 minimum and 19 years of maximum age
    2. No relaxation is given to anybody and selection is purely on merit basis
    3. Only Males candidate can apply, females are not allowed
    4. Only Indian citizen are eligible,
    5. Only unmarried candidate are eligible
    6. Maths and Physics should be compulsory subject for Air force and Navy
    7. Any subject is okay for Army.

    THERE IS NO RELAXATION TO ANYONE SO IF YOU HAVE EXCEEDED THE MAXIMUM AGE LIMIT THEN YOU ARE NOT AT ALL ELIGIBLE FOR THE COURSE, HOWEVER YOU CAN FULFILL YOUR DREAM OF BEING A DEFENCE PERSONNEL BY GOING FOR CDS EXAM


    You can even fill the form offline also.
    Then you will be called for Written exam
    written exam will have questions from Maths, Science, Physics, GK etc
    Then if you clear the exam then you will be called by NDA for Physical examination
    And if you clear that you will be selected for the course.


    Hope it will help


    Cheers...!!!
