Hello, I hope you are doing well
Yes a humanities stream student can apply for Combined Defense Service(CDS) Exam. The eligibility criteria to give CDS exam is graduation, so it doesn't matter from which college and by which subject you had done your graduation. So, even if you had done your 12 standard in humanities stream and now you are pursuing B.A. it doesn't matter.
The eligibility criteria for CDS is given below:
- Candidates must be settled in India permanently
- Candidates must be a graduate or at least in their final year/semester.
- The minimum age limit is 19 years
- Women candidates are eligible to apply only for OTA.
- B. Tech graduates can apply for IMA, INA AFA also.
- Candidates must meet the physical standards
For particularly IMA, the criteria is males with Bachelor’s degree in any discipline. So, you can appear for the exam. Good Luck for your preparations.
