Q.How to prepare current affairs for UPSC’s defense entries/exams?
Ans: Current affairs are one such part that forms a crucial base in all the exams conducted by UPSC and holds a weightage of approximately 25-30% of the total score. It helps the aspirants not only in clearing the written exam but also in the successive stages. Thus ignoring this section means you are digging your own grave. Now the question comes how to approach it?
UPSC current affairs questions are although very wide in scope yet not out of the blue. Questions are usually asked from the events of national and international importance. But this information can be tapped only if a student himself is in regular touch of newspaper instead of making a last-minute affair based on an online compilation. Thus we highly recommend to our students to read one newspaper daily (either The Hindu or Indian Express) and make their notes on what, where, why, and How of key events. In our course module, students are taught how to collect the right type of information on their own, which is why they can deal with this section effectively.
Q: Is there any reservation in NDA, based on category, caste, or income?
Ans: Yes, any student who has passed his +2 from a recognized board can appear for NDA. But one needs to note that non-science students can opt only for an army. Entry in the Air force and Navy seeks physics and mathematics as essential subjects
Q: Is NDA preparation equivalent to JEE? Or Would I be Able to clear NDA if I am preparing for JEE?
Ans: No, they are different altogether. JEE asks for high mental caliber in science subjects only but NDA calls for physical and mental caliber in all subjects (science, social science, current affairs, general English, maths). Moreover, the level of competition is high in both the exams so aspirants require a good level of commitment towards the preparation of each exam.
Q. Minimum time required for NDA exam preparation?
Ans: There is no specific period for NDA preparation. It depends on the aptitude & perseverance of the student. But ideally, it takes 4 to 6 months for a student if he starts it from the scratch provided he is putting his efforts continuously and in the required direction.
Q. I have heard many times that even after clearing SSB students get merit out. How can we assure ourselves of merit?
Ans: Merit list is prepared with the addition of all points/ marks at all the stages (Stage 1: written test, Stage 2: SSB, Stage 3: Medical). Out of all the mentioned stages, stage 1 is in the hands of a student which he can manage in his favor. If a student can manage a good score above the cut-off (certainly he can do so) then he need not feel doubtful about his merit after getting recommended.
Q. Do you provide study material?
Ans: Yes, we do provide well research & up-to-date material but only to the warriors who enroll with us. We do not sell it yet. Class lectures are well delivered so candidates can prepare their notes simultaneously.
Q. Is coaching required for NDA?
Ans: This is a very subjective answer. It depends on various factors; level of exam, number of competitors, the passing ratio of the candidates each year, and number of subjects individual candidates need to prepare. Coaching under good expertise will always save the precious time of the candidate but expertise should be well tested.
