Shivangini Bhatt 19th Feb, 2020
CDA exam is a gateway to the SSB interview. If a candidate manages to clear the CDS Written Exam then he/she will get a chance to show his prowes in the SSB Interview. It is essential to clear the CDS cutoff in order to appear for SSB Interview. If the candidate manages to clear the SSB interview then he/she will be appearing for the document verification and medical examination. After that, the candidate will be sent to the academy for training to become an officer.
