The National Defence Academy or NDA is the joint services academy of Indian armed Forces, where cadets for the Army, the Navy and the Air Force are trained rigorously before they are sent to their respective academies for pre-commissioning training. The tests are tough and can challenge candidates, both physically and mentally. Written exams are conducted by the UPSC every year followed by interviews which cover topics like general aptitude, team building ability and psychological testing. Candidates are also tested for their physical stamina and social skills.

Amrita Global Education is considered as the most effective institution for NDA aspirants as we provide one of the best coaching and training. We have one of the best faculties for providing professional training of the highest quality. We have set the standards of excellence in NDA coaching through our detailed and quality training conducted by the best teachers. Our course covers the entire NDA syllabus as set by the UPSC. We also conduct regular mock tests to build the confidence of students. There are question solving sessions and doubt-clearing sessions conducted every week to monitor the progress of every student closely.

We also provide extensively researched study material which can assist students in organizing their approach to the vast syllabus in a highly planned and systematic manner. Regular tests are also conducted based on the exact current NDA exam format. Our limited size batches ensure personalized attention. The courses have flexible timings for the convenience of students.
