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!
