    One can go for the jobs in army as soon as it completes intermediate and after graduation the opportunities increases even more.
    After completing intermediate,you can apply for the army through NDA-National Defense Academy-a entrance is conducted named as NDA,through which you can apply for the all three wings of the defense altogether.But for applying for the air force and navy wing you need to have the physics and maths in 10+2,and for army any stream is enough.

    Age Limit is 16.5 to 19 years(at the time of commencement of the course).

    After graduation,you can apply through the entrance called CDSE-Combined Defense Service Examination-the qualification required is graduation from any stream,through CDSE you can apply for the IMA-Indian Military Academy and the OTA-Officers Training Academy-both are the entry for the army..

    The qualification for IMA and the OTA is the graduation from any stream and age limit is 19 to 24 years(at the time of commencement of the course for IMA,and 19 to 25 years for OTA at the time of commencement of the course).

    If you are a engineer then you have various other entries possible like TGC(Technical Graduate Course) and the SS(TECH).
