    Re: Minimum marks required in NDA paper?

    dear,

    there isn't any fixed criteria or cut off marks for written exam of NDA.,
    but it is believed to be 1/3rd of each paper will make you eligible for SSB,

    if you are getting more than 1/3rd of total marks in paper 1 that is of maths
    means 100 out of 300 ,

    and
    in paper 2 also that of general ability test,
    that is 200 out of 600
    , then

    you are eligible for SSB,
    and you will be called for SSB,

    all the best for your result.......

    hi !

    The cutoff for the NDA exam varies every year and as such can't really be predicted.

    Here are some guidelines :

    1. Maths section is not that tough so cutoff can go high for this section. Try to score more than 50% in maths.
    2. English can be a little especially the words section. Aim atleast above 40% still.
    3. Reasoning and GK sections are also easy. Try to score max in reasoning.

    All the best !

    Re: Minimum marks required in NDA paper?

    It is not mentioned in the official website that what is the minimum marks is required to cracked the NDA Examination. But 40-50% marks is required to cracked the NDA Examination. But overall it is depends on the Cutt off marks. Those who scored maximum marks in NDA have chances to passed in NDA. Highest scorer will be able to cracked the NDA. So it is totally depends on the Cutt-offs. So please prepared well for this examination as per the pattern and syllabus. The examination is objective with negative marking. You have to cracked theWritten examination first and there are 2 papers in written examination and Both the Papers will consist of objective type questions only.

    --->> Mathematics : Maximum marks is 300 and the duration of the test is 2.5 Hrs.
    --->> General Ability Test : Maximum marks is 600 and the duration of the test is2.5 Hrs.

    If you prepared for this examination as per the pattern and syllabus, only then you will get success in NDA Examination.

    The examination is very competitive because many candidates will appear for this examination every year and to see your name in merit list. You have to scored maximum marks in your NDA Examination.

    So please try to prepared for this examination well, so that you will be scored good marks.

    First stage is to cracked the written test and if you cracked the written test then you are eligible for SSB Interview. Finally selected candidates are eligible for Training.

    If your age is less than 19 years then you can try for this examination next year. For more details you can visit the UPSC official websites.

    Re: Minimum marks required in NDA paper?

    There is basically no cut-off percentage of 10th or 12th

    But if you want to know about cut-off in NDA paper

    See it is not fixed but you need to score more than 45% in each exam
    I mean maths and general ability separately.

    But in top of that a cut-off list or merit list is prepared according
    only students falling in merit list are called for SSB

    WISH YOU LUCK FOR YOUR FUTURE

    Re: Minimum marks required in NDA paper?

    Hello my friend ,
    Since you are not sure of the cut - off marks in the National defence examinations .
    So I'm gonna remove this problem of yours .
    Their has been no particular cut - off marks for passing the National Defence examination and will never
    be in the near future . This is mainly because to also support those 10+2 unmarried male candidate who
    have not taken Mathematics and Physics subjects in their Stream of Subject .


    But this does not means that you should not score any marks in the NDA Examination .
    Their has been some minimum marks that you should score in the Mathematics and General Studies paper to pass
    the National Defence Examinations .
    This remains to be a approximate and is not accurate too mush .
    the Minimum questions that you should attempt correctly in the Mathematics paper without being a
    question wrong are 50 and Minimum questions that you should attempt correctly in the General Studies
    paper without being a question wrong are 65-75 questions .

    Therefore the minimum marks required for passing the NDA Examination are 1/3rd of the total 900 marks of the
    NDA Examination ,i.e , you must score a total of 250-300 marks in the NDA Examination to pass the NDA Examination .

    So best of luck my friend .

    Dear friend,

    NDA exam is conducted by UPSC twice in a year.

    NDA stands for NATIONAL DEFENCE ACADEMY.

    After qualifying this exam, you get admission in Air Force, Army or Navy Wing of National Defence Academy.

    If you score at least 40% marks in General Studies and 60% marks in Mathematics then your Selection is sure.

    However, cut offs changes every year.

    Dear Aspirant

    -Merit system in the exam of NDA and there is no provision for required minimum marks in NDA exam.

    -But my advised is that.

    -If you obtain 1/3rd marks of each paper then you are eligible for SSB means you have cracked the NDA exam.

    • There is no specific marks which can be considered as the passing marks.
    • After the result, a merit list will be released according to which the candidate are selected in this exam.
    • National defence academy examination consist of only two papers, so proper preparation would lead you to best score.
    • The cut off marks for the reserved category will be low.
    • However minimum 50% is needed in both the papers, i.e in Mathematics you need to score 150 marks and in general mental ability you need to score 300 marks.
    • Check out the exam pattern.

    Re: Minimum marks required in NDA paper?

    NDA exam consists of two parts:
    part 1: mathematics-300 marks and
    part 2: general ability test-600 marks..

    and there is no such standard which is fixed as qualifying marks...
    This decision is taken by the UPSC commision to set the qualifying marks depending upon lot of factors like no. of candidates appeared,average marks obtained etc etc...
    so..you just keep focus on performing well in the NDA exam and pass it with flying colours...thank you...

    Dear Friend,
    NDA cut off 2013 is the minimum score that is deemed as necessary to qualify for next round of selections for the NDA. The candidates who have attempted the NDA and scored above NDA cut off will be called to the Army.

    • Students have to keep in touch with the UPSC website as well as the help lines to know the details in case the call letter does not reach on time.
    • They should contact the respective service selection boards before 20 days of the declaration of results.

    The NDA (I) Cut off for 2012:
    • The Cut Off for written was 333
    • The SSB cutoff for the Army, Navy and Air Force was695
    NDA Cut off for 2011
    • The Written cutoff was 290.
    • The SSB cutoff
    For Army was 659
    For Navy was 659
    For IAF was 703

    Re: Minimum marks required in NDA paper?

    dear friend
    since NDA is a competitive exam so you cannot be sure about the cutoff as it is not pre-decided
    it depends on the difficulty level of paper and the relative performances of the candidates....
    but based on the past trends and my personal experiences i can assure that if you get anything above 400 your selection is sure shot......
    but don't aim for that bare minimum........tr to score as much as possible in written exam because if you get recommended then written score carries 50% weightage in final merit..............
    so try to score as much as possible..........
    best of luck....
