Hii There,

Certainly. If you're in your third year of engineering, you're eligible to appear for the CDS examination. However, if you qualify the written exam, you won't be able to attend the SSB (Service Selection Board) interview because you must be in the final year of your engineering studies to do so.



No, You do not necessarily need to choose an engineering stream in college to be eligible for CDS or AFCAT exams. As long as you meet the eligibility criteria specified by the exams, you can pursue your desired field of study in college and still appear for these exams. So go ahead and prepare for CDS and AFCAT with your chosen stream.

Hope this helps you,

Thank you

Thank you

Hope this information helps you.
