Biology students are also eligible to apply for NDA if they have a mathematics and physics as compulsory subjects with biology. If you possess these subjects then you might have chances to appear for this examination as Maths and Physics are the mandatory subjects to apply for NDA. NDA stands for National Defence Academy Examination and this examination is conducted by Union Public Service Commission twice in a year as called as NDA I and NDA II Examination. This exam mainly conducted in the month of April and August in a year. To apply for this examination, you must have a proper qualification, age limits and other requirements to apply.
NDA Exam is conducted for recruitment of Army wings, Navy wings and Air force wings. If you want to get an admission in Air force and Navy wings then you must have a physics and mathematics as main subjects in your examination. Official website: www.upsc.gov.in
Biology being your strong subject and you looking for careers in defence, why not also think for Armed Forces Medical College (AFMC)?
Armed Forces Medical College (AFMC) requires 12th Biology students as minimum eligibility. Just a few days back, another batch of AFMC passed out and Mr. Manohar Parriker the Defence Minister of India was the Chief Guest for the convocation.
I feel, that instead of core NDA, AFMC would be good for you and you will be able to become a Doctor and serve the nation by being in the Forces.
Definitely, you will have to appear for the AFMC entrance test, pass the physical test and personal interview round. But I definitely feel that you can get into AFMC as be a Army Doctor.
After retiring from Forces also, you will be able to do your own practice in medicine or get attached to a good hospital on visiting basis.
