In the eligibility checker (https://joinindianarmy.nic.in/alpha/Eligibility.htm) for Indian Army, the following education qualification are stated ineligible for “Indian Military Academy (Direct Entry)” (which means CDSE):
- B.E. / B.Tech / B.Arch / MSc Computer
- M.E. / M.Tech / M.Arch
- Post Graduation (Other than M.E. / M.Tech / M.Arch)
Only the option “GRADUATION (All graduation degree other than B.E / B.Tech & B.Arch)” is eligible for CDSE.
The official newspaper notification for CDSE states the educational qualification as “Degree of a recognized University or equivalent”, page 7 under section (c) here: http://www.upsc.gov.in/sites/default/files/Notification_CDSE_I_2018_Engl.pdf Therefore ALL the above degrees should be eligible.
What qualification should a dual degree (BTech plus Mtech) student provide? Why are the engineering degrees (BTech, etc) above ineligible (is there a mistake on the website)?
