WHY ONLY THE SBP INSTITUTE FOR NDA-

National Defence Academy is a premier joint training institution and center of excellence for grooming junior leaders for the Indian armed forces and armed forces of Friendly Foreign Countries. The training entails equipping the cadets with mental, moral and physical attributes required to cope with the challenges of the future battle field with the aim of leading troops to victory in conventional, non-conventional and asymmetrical conflicts.

The syllabi encompass science, technology, arts and military subjects. The three-year course is split into six terms. A cadet is awarded a Bachelor's Degree from the Jawaharlal Nehru University. The regimen consists of physical conditioning which includes drill, swimming, horse riding, full gamut of games and adventure activities. In three years at the Academy, he is transformed from a Cadet into a potential Officer and a gentleman.

On successful completion of the three-year course, Army cadets proceed to Indian Military Academy at Dehradun, Naval cadets to Indian Naval Academy at Ezhimala and Air Force cadets to the Air Force Academy at Hyderabad. After completion of one year of training at their respective academies, they are commissioned as Officers into respective services.

Right from our childhood, we have been taught in our textbooks that soldiers are the country’s real heroes. It’s because they strive a lot day and night at our borders that we live peaceful lives. Though, we have acknowledged new lifestyles, where we aspire to settle in our lives with well paid jobs, there are many who want to give themselves for the service of the nation by joining any one of the three services (Army, Navy and the Air Force) as a career option. But getting into any of these three services is not easy.Be prepared to undergo rigorous training. But, before getting selected candidates have to appear for an exam. This page gets you all the information you may want to know about one such exam ie NDA (NationalDefenceAcademy) exam.
