In order to provide other employers access to a database, the commission releases the marks of willing candidates into the public domain.

The scores of applicants who were deemed unfit for the Combined Defence Services (CDS) test in 2024 have been made available by the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC). You can check the results on if you participated in the UPSC CDS 1 examination (SSB interview) but were not selected for the final round.

On October 27, the Indian Military Academy (IMA), Indian Naval Academy (INA), and Air Force Academy (AFA) announced the final CDS 1 test results for the year 2023. On January 24, 2024, the Officers Training Academy (OTA) Men and Women results were released.

Based on the outcomes of the April 2023 exam and the SSB interviews conducted by the other organizations, 235 applicants in total were chosen.

The commission has now disclosed the marks (out of 600) of willing and unqualified IMA, INA, and AFA applicants who choose to provide their personal information under this disclosure system.

According to the commission, the information is accurate as of March 12th, one year after it was disclosed.
