K
kavita rani

Hi Preetam. Based on the UPSC pattern, candidates have to score minimum 30% marks in NDA exam mathematics paper to clear the exam. The NDA exam mathematics cut off mark is 30% of 300 which means you need to get 90 marks. The UPSC also announces the sectional cut off marks for NDA exam GAT and candidates have to get the minimum marks as per UPSC to clear the NDA exam.
