how many students appear for NDA and how many seats in NDA?
I would like to inform you that in NDA 1 2021 attempt around 4-4.5 lakhs had appeared for nda exam. In 4-4.5 lakhs appearing, around 6000 students are called for an SSB interview. Getting clear the nda written exam is pretty easier than nda ssb interview. You just need to go through all the 10 year nda exams.
