NDA Exam - Cut-off Trend

UPSC NDA is a two-tier exam and 900 marks are allotted to each tier. The cadets are selected based on their aggregate cut-off in both tiers. However, to qualify for the second tier, which is the SSB interview, you have to score a minimum of 25% out of 900 in the First Tier. At the same time, you must have a minimum of 25% in each section of the papers. The average cut-off has varied over the years and if you note the trend since 2010, it has increased with time.

Whether the NDA cut-off will be lower than usual this year, depends on many factors like the difficulty level of the paper, number of candidates who appeared, etc. 

When you are preparing for the upcoming test, keeping the cut-off trend in mind helps you to make a study plan.
