    • Dear Umendra Pratap Singh Sir,
      If you read the eligibility criteria in DASA UG Information Brochure. You ward is eligible as per section 2.1.2 of the academic eligibility.
      “Applicant should have successfully completed Mathematics, Physics and one of the subjects
      from (Chemistry, Biotechnology, Computer Science, Biology) in 11th AND / OR 12th, as
      applicable in the respective boards.” Where Chemistry comes into “one of the subjects” and “Mathematics, Physics” are compulsory. Hope this solves your query but keep an eye on 2019 information brochure of DASA, which is yet to be published. I am also emailing you a copy of DASA UG 2018 Information Brochure.
