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.

Hi Bunty. Preparing for the NDA exam is not an easy task, you need to work harder to achieve your target. While practicing for the written exam, refer to the best books by preparing a proper time table. Some of the books that you can refer to while preparing for NDA maths include: Quantitative Aptitude for competitive examinations by RS Aggarwal NDA Entrance Exam by ES Ramasamy Mathematics for NDA/NA: National Defence Academy and Naval Academy written by RS Aggarwal

kunal thakrar
Hey! Which book should I buy for NDA maths? Arihant exemplar class 11+12 or RS Agarwal? How should I study and what books should I refer for NDA exam, I have just 5 months to prepare for it?
K
kavita rani

Hi Kunal. RS Aggarwal is one of the best options especially in case you are preparing for NDA Mathematics. Make sure that you get a minimum of 130–140 Marks in Paper 1 else you will not be considered for the second paper. You can also refer to RD Sharma for Maths. In case you can easily solve the questions asked in NCERT 11 and 12 Maths book, then you are preparing in the right way but still it is always preferable to use other books like RS Aggarwal or RD Sharma. In case you have limited time in hand, then include NDA Pathfinder Book by Arihant as it includes all the syllabus that helps ace the exam. Since this book includes last year’s question papers, so it will help candidates understand the kind of questions asked in the exam. For Maths, all the books mentioned below are good: Arihant Pathfinder R.S. AGGARWAL Arihant Previous year Questions
