Have a question related to NDA ?

Hi,

Yes, reasoning is a part of the National Defence Academy (NDA) exam. The NDA exam includes two papers: Mathematics and General Ability Test (GAT). The GAT paper is divided into two sections:

1. English: Covers grammar, vocabulary, comprehension, and more.

2. General Knowledge: Includes sections such as Physics, Chemistry, General Science, History, Geography, and Current Events.


Within the General Knowledge section, there are often questions that test reasoning and analytical abilities, although it may not be a separate dedicated section labeled as "Reasoning". Logical reasoning questions can be embedded within various topics, assessing a candidate's problem-solving and critical thinking skills.


Hope it helps!

Hi there aspirant,

The NDA (National Defence Academy) exam is a mixture of many subjects. Although, one needs to have a strong hold on Mathematics and Physics. It is very vital to practice this section to crack the exam. Another section covers a whole lot of subjects like Basic Science, History, General Knowledge, English and Geography. This is for the second part of the exam (GAT).

Hope you'll find this answer helpful!

GOOD LUCK.
