NDA Training Procedure and Duration after Selection in NDA

The lifestyle of NDA cadets

NDA cadets live their life like a gentleman, they transform themselves from Boy to men, from men to gentlemen and they live there like a family with fix routine of breakfast, lunch and dinner. They never get bored because they are always busy with their events, exercise and seminar etc.

despite having strict schedule cadets get time to watch the latest Hindi and English movies. The training at the academy Is so fast and intense that the time seems to be flying here. During the short day in the academy, a cadet learns to live his life with passion and discipline. The time spent in the national defence academy is the golden moment of every cadet’s life.

How to prepare for the NDA exam

Look, everybody has their own way of preparing for any exam. But we know Discipline and motivation are common in all the method of preparing. the first thing we would discuss the difficulty level of the exam. NDA written test is very easy as compared to the SSB interview which happens after the written test. For the preparation of written exams, there are so many books available in the market, you can take help from there.

But I would suggest you to just prepare your 10+2 NCERT books as you had prepared it for your Boards, inboards you have to write for 1 to 2 pages for each answer and you had time for that. But here that’s not the case. You have to solve those questions but at last, you have ticked the correct answers and for that, you would have very less time. I think 1 minute for each question. So try to manage your time, solve the previous year question paper as much as you can.
