All About NDA and NA Examination in brief 

National Defence Academy

NDA or National Defence Academy  is a national  institute for training the youth for the officer level entry into the three wings of the Armed forces of India. It is a training ground for defence leaders and grooms young boys into leaders who are respected and followed. The institute focuses on imbibing qualities which would help the cadets to face difficult situations be it at the time of peace or war.

Training at NDA

The training at NDA is rigorous. In addition to service training for the army, navy and airforce, the cadets are also taught academics to cover the graduation level degree in Arts, Sciences or Computers. The untrained young boy who comes to the academy leaves as a physically fit, morally strianght, polished,and  mentally alert man . He is thus transformed to be an officer and a a gentleman. The training at NDA is broken into six terms and the total duration of training is three years. Cadets pass out of the Academy after the Passing out parade on completion of their training. He also gets a  bachelors degree just before passing out.  Thereafter the cadets go to theri respective service institutes ie the Indian Military Academy or IMA for army cadets, Air Force Academy Hyderabad for Airforce cadets and Naval Academy Cochin for Naval Cadets.

How to Prepare for the NDA Exam

A candidate has two options to prepare for the NDA written exam. First option is self study. The second option is to take coaching. Coaching should be taken  from an Academy of repute and one  which is regularly preparing the students for the exam like we at Olive Greens in Panchkula Chandigarh are doing. Please check the credentials of the Academy before joining as there are many operators in the market out to make a quick buck. Avoid academies offering one month coaching as syllabus is vast and cannot be digested in this short time. You may end up wasting your time and money. A time plot of two months is more practical. Coaching offers the following advantages

  • Students can take advantage of the vast experience of the tutors.
  • Coaching Institutes have prepared their own books after analysis of the exams.
  • Doubts in the students mind can be cleared instantaneously
  • Knowledge is exchanged with other students.
  • Coaching Institutes put the students through regular tests on the NDA pattern.
  • Students get into a regular study cycle which is not possible in the self study mode.
  • Coaching Institutes provide mock tests at  the end for the entire syllabus.
  • Coaching institutes provide previoius question papers and answer keys. Last year question papers and answer keys can be downloaded free from our site.

Success Tips

  • Be consistent in your effort. Don’t loose focus after couple of days or weeks efforts.
  • Be deliberate about your preparation. Half hearted preparation will lead to half hearted results.
  • Revise old question papers.
  • If considering taking coaching you are welcome to Olive Greens Panchkula Chandigarh.
