With the New Year 2020, a number of gateways have opened up for defence services aspirant. The new year brings in a new roster of exams that will give an opportunity to these candidates to take a shot at entering the hallowed arches of defence academies.
Let’s highlight the Top 3 Gateways which will help you to enter the Defence Services in 2020:
NDA Training in Kolkata
Entrance exams to the National Defence Academy are held twice a year. This year too, the exams are scheduled on April 19 and September 6. The applications can be done from January 8 for the first leg and June 10 for the second test. These tests are taken by more than 10 lakh candidates out of which only about 20 thousand qualify in the written round. The degree of elimination makes it clear that NDA exams are not easy. However, with concentrated and strategic effort, it can be cracked. What you need is a game plan that can be provided by our NDA entrance exam experts at Siegwald Academy
CDS Training in Kolkata
While the NDA exams is for candidates just out of school or appearing for their plus 2 finals, the CDS is for college pass-outs and for those who have appeared for the college finals. CDS stands for Combined Defence Services. Like the NDA, CDS is also conducted twice a year. The first exam this year will be on February 2. The applications for this test were already done on October 30, 2019. The second test will be conducted on November 8. The applications have to be done on August 5. Just as the NDA, the elimination percentage in CDS is the same. The exam is tougher because the level is of graduate level. Again, with targeted coaching like we do at, it can be cracked.
Short Service Commission
This is for candidates who wish to join the technical side of the defence forces on a short time basis. Technical grads and post grads can apply for the test. After the SSB round is done, along with the medical rounds, you will be expected to undergo training at OTA, Chennai. As the same suggests, this appointment is for a short time only.
