The Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) has successfully conducted the National Defence Academy (NDA) and Naval Academy (NA) II examination today. This is for the first time that the examination was taken by female candidates as well. There were two shifts over which the UPSC NDA 2 exam was held. The first shift took place from 10:00 AM to 12:30 PM and the second shift from 2:00 PM to 4:30 PM. Since the examination is now complete, let’s take a look at an overall analysis of the UPSC NDA 2 exam.
According to the candidates, the Mathematics paper had a moderate level of difficulty. The questions were mostly out of the NCERT curriculum.

As per subject experts, the GAT paper had a difficulty level between moderate to high.
The English section was reportedly the easiest out of all the three GAT parts. Nonetheless, vocabulary-based questions, sentence ordering, idioms and phrases, etc. were somewhat difficult. The General Knowledge part was somewhere within a moderate level of difficulty. This section comprised questions from Physics, Chemistry, General Science, History, etc.
Now, UPSC has not specified any fixed date for releasing the NDA 2 results. The Commission will fix a minimum qualifying marks at their discretion and then release a list of candidates who will obtain the same. These candidates will then have to appear before the Services Selection Board for the Intelligence and Personality Test.
