    Re: How much marks are required for clearing in NDA examination?


    NDA exam is conduced by UPSC every year and the Cut off or the minimum marks required to get into MBA varies from year to year and hence no body can tell you the exact answer for the question. Still in every section 60% or more should be the target to be on the safer side. Other details are as follows :-

    1. Candidate must have 16.5 minimum and 19 years of maximum age
    2. No relaxation is given to anybody and selection is purely on merit basis
    3. Only Males candidate can apply, females are not allowed
    4. Only Indian citizen are eligible,
    5. Only unmarried candidate are eligible
    6. Maths and Physics should be compulsory subject for Air force and Navy
    7. Any subject is okay for Army.

    Hope it will help

    Dear friend,

    There is no such criteria of Cut off marks in NDA Examination.

    But if you are getting 40% marks in General Ability Paper and 60% marks in Mathematics then your Written Test is almost qualified.

    After qualifying Written Test, you will be called for SSB Interview.

    SSB Training and Interview is a 5-6 days schedule.

    You will be examined for various tasks like GTO, etc.

    In this way, they will firmly check you whether you are eligible for NDA or not.
