“The National Defence Academy (NDA) stands testimony to one’s dedication for the nation and career. It demands courage, hard work and aptitude to succeed."

It’s as good as a goldmine.

But it needs a lot of courage, hard work and aptitude to succeed. The National Defence Academy (NDA) stands testimony to one’s zest for holding nerves at the right time and at the right place.

Are you willing to explore possibilities of a good career other than through EAMCET? If you answer in the affirmative, perhaps you should start planning your career. More so, if you are in Intermediate. This is the time to do some serious thinking and prepare for different entrance examinations simultaneously.

The NDA test is to be held in April next (notification is generally given in the month of October and last date for submitting applications is in November).

What will happen if one is selected in the NDA? In case the student joins the Air Force, he will join the Air Force Academy in Hyderabad and after completion of basic training he will come out as a Commissioned Officer in the rank of Flying Officer. In case of Navy he will join the Indian Naval Academy at Kochi and will become an officer in the rank of Sub-Lieutenant. A student joining the Army will proceed to the Indian Military Academy in Dehradun and will join the rank of a Lieutenant.

The opportunities are limitless, facilities and benefits unlimited. Job opportunities at global and technology levels do not at any point match with the career openings that the armed forces officer. When selected, a candidate is commissioned as a Class 1 officer and is given all the facilities that he cannot even dream of in the average civil life. After entry into the armed forces, one can get a study leave for two years and the growth opportunities are virtually unlimited.

“Name it, they have it”

A successful candidate can even get into research and development. From engineering to medicine.From administration to strategy. From armament technology to management. You name it. They have it.

Apart from attractive pay and perks, the armed forces officer something which a private organisation can never. Great lifestyle and an opportunity in adventure sports.Mountaineering river rafting, gliding, trekking, skydiving, parasailing, shooting, skiing and many more. As they say it do you have it in you? If yes, try taking the NDA exam next April.

When to prepare for NDA test
