Exam Notification 2024


ACC i.e. Army Cadet College is located in the IMA premises in Dehradun. ACC is an entry for commissioned rank for those enlisted soldiers (non-officers) who aspire to become officers. In ACC entry Civilians cannot apply. Only Soldiers of Army and Airforce can apply for it. Navy soldiers have a different scheme just for them; it is called as the CW i.e. Commission Worthy entry.

The procedure of ACC is quite similar to NDA or CDS exam. A written exam, known as Army Cadet College Exam is held amongst the enlisted soldiers for the selection. The final selection of the candidates is done by SSB Board by conducting SSB interview, which is attended only by those who qualifies the written exam. Pattern of the paper is very similar to NDA.

Again, if you are aware of NDA training then it must be easy for you to understand the training of ACC because the training in ACC is exactly the same as training in NDA.

In ACC, soldiers undergo BSC/BA courses alongside military training for 3 years, just like in NDA. After 3 years, they pass out from ACC with a degree and join IMA, where they’ll train with the CDS and NDA entries for 1 year. ACC+NDA+CDS constitute the Regular course in IMA. After passing out, they’ll become officers.

As officers, they have a permanent commission.
