    Re: Minimum marks required to pass NDA exam?

    NDA consist of 300 marks in mathematics and 600 marks in General Studies.
    T
    hey do also give Negative Markings so beware of this.

    As
    NDA doesn't reveal any Cut off in any Paper But if you Score at least 40% in General Studies and 60% in Mathematics then your Selection is sure.
    So, Do well in your Exam try to Give those answer only which are known perfectly by you.

    Re: Minimum marks required to pass NDA exam?

    Dear Friend,


    From my own experience I can tell you that scoring around 300 will make you clear NDA written. But you should be pass in both the papers(i.e., Mathematics and General Ability) individually. And the individual cut-off will stand around 30%.

    I myself passed NDA exam 2 out of 2 times. First time I scored around 300 and second time I scored around 400.

    Hope it Helps...

    Dear aspirant,

    NDA cutoffs keeps on changing every year.

    However, if you have secured at least 40% marks or above in General Studies and 60% marks or above in Mathematics.

    Then, your selection is near about sure in NDA.

    After this, you may be called for Personal Interview and Physical Test.

    Re: Minimum marks required to pass NDA exam?

    Hello my dear friend


    There is NO criteria about the Percentage and Marks

    If you complete the 10+2 then you are eligible to apply for the NDA examination otherwise you can not have a chance to Apply for this examination

    Mainly talking about this examination it is conducted by the UPSC and Conducts Twice a Year


    But in the Notification they are not specified about the percentage

    But if the Members who are apply for the NDA Exam is more then they put the Cut off based on the Relative performance

    Only Unmarried Male candidates are Eligible


    You have to submit the Documents of the Academics at the Time of interview


    So final year students are not eligible to apply for the NDA Examination

    But dont try to see the Cut off marks some times it will be more

    More concentrate on your studies

    That is all



    Good luck

    The cutoff for 2011 for written was 290

    The SSB Cutoff :
    • For Army was 659

    • National defence academy i.e NDA examination is defence sector examination which is organised by the UPSC.
    • UPSC has not prescribed any minimum passing marks for the NDA examination, so it's wholly depends upon the cut off marks released.
    • Cut off marks depends upon the performance of every students.
    • So you must have to score as maximum as possible so that you marks come bigger than cut marks.
    • Then only you can proceed for further process.
