Hello, Aspirant!

Since you're 18.9 years, you are eligible for applying in NDA. Candidates aged between 16.5 years and 19.5 years are eligible to apply in NDA. And in addition, to be eligible for applying in NDA, candidates must have passed class 12 examination. Those who are appearing class 12 examination can also apply.

Hope this answers your query. Thank you.

Yes, if you're aiming for UPSC then you need to complete graduation in any stream from a recognized university, diploma isn't accepted in this regard there is no such restrictions of belonging to specific discipline when it comes to appearing for upsc, however if you complete your graduation in subjects like political science, public  administration, history, geography, economics, sociology etc there is considerable overlap with the syllabus of general studies and optional subjects, see if you're pursuing your degree from a recognized university say IGNOU for example then it's valid for higher studies as well as government jobs. you can definitely pursue higher studies while doing government job, if I further provide you information about IGNOU, it has various regional centres all over India, and under it are study centre where you submit your assignments, appear for term end exam etc, so there is no problem you can choose any degree of your choice, just make sure the specific degree is valid in distance mode and the university is recognized by ugc.You can apply even in the final year of graduation provisionally, and you need to attain 21 years as on 1stAugust of the appearing year.
