How To Prepare For The NDA Written After 10th Standard – Part 2

In the last article, we discussed the possible approaches you should keep while preparing for NDA Written exam during your 11th and 12th standard. In this article, we will focus on the examination point of view only that will enhance your knowledge regarding the 2 question papers of NDA Written Exam.

Questions that come in UPSC NDA are different in nature if compared to other exams. Subjects such as polity, history, physics, biology, chemistry consist of questions more or less directly approached and factual in nature while other subjects such as geography, history, current affairs, and economics pose questions of analytical in nature. It simply means that in the former part either you know or don’t know the answer while in the later part you can simply gauge your memory or can correlate one thing with another to find out the correct answer or at least the most probable correct answer based on your 2-year study.

Aspirants lookout for books such as Laxmikant polity and Bipin Chandra history that are comprehensive in nature and need in-depth study and are used by Civil services aspirants. I believe that NDA doesn’t require this kind of in-depth and time-consuming study as you already have a lot of syllabi to cover alongside your regular curriculum of the school. Of course, a few topics can be read from them if the situation demands much clarity but reading the entire book is a bit tedious and time-consuming task and not advisable for NDA. If you have extra time then you can always refer to NCERTs of all the relevant subjects from 8th class onwards, it will make your basics crystal clear.

If you have extra time then you can always refer to NCERTs of all the relevant subjects from 8th class onwards, it will make your basics crystal clear. What NDA needs is an approach where you must have an idea regarding the things and that can help you in correlating things and finding out answers, we can say not light and not in-depth – just the right balance.

Let’s now talk about subject wise content and how to deal with them in the NDA Written exam.

Geography needs a different approach and you can’t simply memorise the content as it is mostly based on cues from geographical as well as political features of world and India. You should be studying the main components such as major geographical features of the world in terms of oceans, mountains, climate, ecosystem, rivers, deserts etc. Indian geography needs a comprehensive study with a clear understanding and deep practice that can come up only with the help of an ATLAS. Please refer an Atlas while studying geography as the visible cues and maps will help you more in the retention of facts and figures and you will be lost in geography without an atlas.

Memorise the Atlas and read it like a storybook as questions are mostly direct in approach but you will have to associate things in order to get the answer of the most of the questions. I used certain techniques while studying geography as one geographical feature can be interlinked with another and on and on and on. For example, if you know the soil pattern of a place then you can easily speculate the rainfall pattern and the type of vegetation or crops in that particular region. Similarly, many other features can be deduced if you will study the maps and related features with fond interest.

Economics of India basically starts from 1947 onwards in NDA and that’s why you should be focusing primarily from that time. The major policies, plans, revolutions, organisations, banks etc. should be studied in an in-depth manner. Frequent releases by PIB India and related agencies should be consulted in case of major policy releases or changes. The questions in both of these subjects are basically subjective but fact-based and direct in approach. If you are having trouble in clearing your basics then take the help of SSBCrack topnotch SMEs topic wise as they provide adequate support and information.

For Physics, Chemistry and Biology – the candidates who haven’t taken Science will feel a great deal of difficulty level similar to those candidates who haven’t taken Arts and Commerce and faces difficulty in Economics, Polity and History. For those who haven’t taken those in their higher classes should refer to SSBCrack’s quality high-end video lectures & conceptual clarity is guaranteed to the aspirants.

Coming down to Mathematics, it is necessary to know that the level of maths in NDA exam along with English in GAT as it is very moderate. Again, you don’t have to focus on solving all the questions in maths but rather your focus should be on solving a considerable number of questions in an accurate manner. Among the 120 questions, even if you are able to solve more than 60-70 questions with a higher accuracy then you are good to go. In English and maths, most of the questions have a direct answer and there is no beating around the bush as either you know the answer or you don’t.

In English various types of questions such as Spotting of Errors, Ordering of Sentences in a Paragraph Antonyms, Synonyms, Jumbled Words and Sentences will come to you with ease if you will practice the habit of reading. If you wish to score well in English as it is relatively easier then start practising with SSBCrack Exams for greater accuracy from the beginning. All this while, you should be keeping the negative marking in your mind in all the subjects.

To clear the written exam for NDA is a humongous task and the competition is fierce. Then what should you do to boost your performance in written exams? We all know that this is an excellent time to try new things that technology has brought at your steps such as Online Courses.
