10 Last Minute Tips For NDA 1 2023 Exam

NDA 1 2023 Exam is just around the clock and it must be giving nerves to many of you who want to clear it anyhow. But when it comes to mathematics, many of us have nightmares about it since it is not our strongest point. Brushing up the basics of the NDA Exam, the test will be 900 marks divided into Mathematics (300 marks) and General Ability Test (600 marks).

The candidates will be given a time of two and a half hours to finish the examination as the questions will be of objective types. The test has two papers: Paper 1 will have Mathematics: Algebra, Matrices and Determinants, Trigonometry, Analytical Geometry of two and three dimensions, Differential Calculus, Integral Calculus, and Differential Equations, Vector Algebra, Statistics, and Probability; while Paper 2 will test your General Ability and English.

So, if you are all done with the preparations for the big day, here are some tips to keep in consideration before going to the exam:

  1. Don’t panic, as it will make the situation worse. Revise your notes on the night before the exam and in the morning.
  2. Don’t try to fill your mind with the points from the book. Take rest – it will make your body energetic and ever ready for all the upcoming tasks.
  3. Eat a healthy. Healthy food will give you the required energy to prepare for your exams.
  4. Have a good night’s sleep and go by the tips to remember formulae in my article on A Good Night’s Sleep and SSB Interview.
  5. Solve previous year’s exam papers. Even if you are left with a bit of preparation to do, leave it and start solving the previous year’s papers.
  6. Be cool and do not take stress or pressurise yourself. What you have done till now is enough. Do not start a new topic; just revise what you’ve prepared.
  7. During the exam, avoid leaving anything blank. There may only be 1 in 4 marks to lose if you got it wrong. But considering you got at least one correct in 4 guesses, you are neutral and if you got more than 1 correct, it’s in your favour. Try as hard as you can to make an intelligent guess.

  8. Be calm and execute each task in an organised manner.
  9. Make arrangements for the big day – keep an extra pen with you, a hall ticket, and loads of blessings.
