We at Dhwajj Defence Academy have designed special NDA Foundation courses for 10th and 11th pass students. This is with the aim to catch NDA aspirants at young age and train their mind inculcating personality traits which are most desirable in candidates for selection in SSB. Long exposure of students to disciplined and value based training in the academy like in Sainik schools and Military schools helps students in shaping up their personalities by improving their thought process, building strength of their character and honing their communication and soft skills.
During this period of one and two years we not only cover the NDA syllabus for written exam but we also orient them with SSB selection procedure and develop and sharpen the qualities which they are required to have for passing the personality based tests in SSB.
NDA foundation course is the right choice for all students who desire to become officers in Defence Forces. This is a unique program which enhances chances of selection of students in NDA manifold.
Students who undergo NDA Foundation Courses after 10th and 11th standards, they are fully prepared for the NDA written and SSB interview before their 12th standard exam.
