can i give nda in class 11th if my present age is fulfilling the nda age criteria

Aishwarya Kadam 18th Jan, 2020

Hi,

As a 11th standard student you are not eligible for NDA exam as the candidate must have passed or must be appearing for the 12th standard exams from any recognized board. It is important as you will be required to produce the proof for passing the 10+2 in the month of December 2020.

You can check the eligibility criteria on the link given below:

Hope this addresses

nda current affairs syllabus 2020

Pankhuri Kumari 16th Jan, 2020
Dear Student!
NDA has not given syllabus norms as such for Current Affairs. Current affairs itself means the recent happenings going around in the world. So, as a matter of fact, tou can prepare for topics such as important dates, important and current happening in India and around the world, prominent personalities, geography, history, and basic science as a whole, and basic knowledge about Indian armed forces. Hope this helps.
Good luck!
