Exam pattern/question pattern of NDA Exam 2015

Exam pattern/question pattern of NDA Exam 2015

This blog post is part of a series of articles on NDA examination prep material titled: NDA Exam 2015 Prep material: Sample Papers & Books. If you have not gone through the previous posts, may be you would find it useful to go through them.

The focus of this particular blog post is on what is the Exam pattern/question pattern of NDA examination.

NDA exam is a two-level examination. First level is the Written Test conducted by UPSC. If you score high in this test (try to be within top 1500 rank), you would be called for the second level – the Interview conducted by SSB (Services Selection Board).

Total marks on which you would be judged is 1800:
Marks for UPSC NDA Written Test: 900.
Marks for SSB NDA Interview : 900.

The Interview conducted by SSB is a very elaborate process which tests your psychology, physical fitness, team-spirit etc. SSB interview would be covered by me through another blog post.

Let us now focus on the exam pattern of the NDA written test.
There are two papers in NDA written test and both are objective type (multiple choice) question paper:
Paper-1. Mathematics : 300 Marks.
Paper-2. General Ability: 600 Marks, which has two parts:
Part ‘A’ English : 200 Marks.
Part ‘B’ General Knowledge: 400 Marks.

Both of above NDA written test papers are of 2-1/2 hours duration each.

The Paper-2 of NDA exam, i.e. General Ability Test has six sections with the break-up of 400 marks as below:
Section ‘A’ (Physics) : 100 marks.
Section ‘B’ (Chemistry) : 60 marks.
Section ‘C’ (General Science) : 40 marks.
Section ‘D’ (History, Freedom Movement etc.) : 80 marks.
Section ‘E’ (Geography) : 80 marks.
Section ‘F’ (Current Events) : 40 marks.

Each question in both the paper has four answer options, from which you need to select the correct option and mark it in the answer sheet by darkening the circle for the option completely with a pencil.

You need to take care while darkening the circle for the correct option – the circle should be darkened completely. The answer sheet is evaluated through OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software and hence if the circle is not darkened properly, the answer would come as a blank answer to OCR!

An example of correct way of marking and wrong way is given as below:

If at some point of time you found that you marked an answer wrongly, you can correct it by erasing the wrongly marked option completely with an eraser and than marking the correct answer.

Thus you need both a HB pencil and an eraser in the examination hall of NDA exam to answer the questions!

For more information on how to fill up the answer sheet is given in this brochure.

There is negative marking for wrong answers in the NDA exam!
For any wrong answers, one third (0.33) of the marks assigned to that question will be deducted as penalty. If you give more than one answer, it will be also treated as a wrong answer.

So if you make any guess work, make it wisely. If you do not know the answer of a question for sure, therefore, better to leave it blank!

After having learnt above the exam pattern of NDA exam, lets go on to find the question pattern of the questions asked in NDA exam.
