After 12th Commerce: Join Indian Army/Navy/Air Force

Many Indian students nurse the dream of joining the Armed Forces of India! It is one of the best jobs available in India. A job in the Armed Forces not just assures a good pay scale and perks, but it is also one such job that earns one much respect from society! So, for 12th Commerce students, what it really takes to join the Indian Army/Navy or Air Force as a Commissioned Officer? I will describe career opportunities that Commerce students have in the Armed Forces, after they clear 12th standard exams.

Indian Armed Forces

12th Commerce students can join NDA for Indian Army only!

While 12th science students may appear for NDA (National Defence Academy) examination while in/after passing 12th standard and join the course right after 12th, Commerce students don’t have this luxury of applying for any branch of the Indian Armed Forces. 10+2 Commerce students may join the NDA only for Indian Army selection.

 

Commerce students can’t appear for NDA entrance exam and get into IAF or Indian Navy after they finish 12th grade schooling. They can’t become a Commissioned Officer in IAF or Indian Navy right after 12th. But they may become Indian Army Officer right after 12th, through NDA Entry!

 

Way for Commerce stream students to become Commissioned Officers in Armed Forces-

To join Indian Army as an Officer, Commerce stream students have two ways-

  • After 12th (NDA Entry)
  • After Graduation (CDSE, NCC, JAG Entry etc, whichever applies)

 

In case of joining Indian Air Force and Indian Navy as Officers, there is no provision available for Commerce students right after 12th. They may join Indian Navy or IAF after Graduation though!

 

A good example is the AFCAT examination. Commerce stream students may join Indian Air Force as Officers (in Ground Duty Branches) after Graduation, by appearing for AFCAT examination!

 

This exam can be attempted by candidates who have completed graduation in from a recognized University. So, after completing graduation course (3 or 4 years long), Commerce stream students may appear for AFCAT entrance examination and join IAF’s Ground Duty Branches. Similarly, they may appear for relevant exam held by Indian Navy also, after Graduation and join Indian Navy as Officer.
