I had something of this sort in mind since a long time. The best move is shortening academics to 5th term, and eliminating cross-stream subjects to give way to service related subjects. The Common Service Syllabus at NDA is very very detailed, I was amazed to see its level of detail, and since more ...

It was 10 obstacles in 3 minutes in my SSB. No one did more than 9. Some were in middle of last when bell rang. But this is interesting...are u sure it carries no marks absolutely ? Then what criteria is used for marking ? Anyways, if anyone gave NDA/CDS-2 2004, there was an additional list for NDA ...

Raman, I don't see anything too sensitive in my posts about the procedure. What the SSB does not want is candidates with fabricated responses in psychological tests and GT. Stuff I mentioned is actually nothing comapred to books on SSB. And Army itself conducts coaching camps for SSB, in a very orga...

Try googling. It is basically a Flight Control Software that acts as an interface between pilot controls and actual control surfaces. This allows maximum utilization of aircraft envelope and also preventing overrunning limits. It is essential in unstable designs like LCA, to keep aircraft flyable.

Thanx Jagan, You are right that CDSE drop rate is higher, even the seats are less. And obviously going through NDA makes you tough, so you can handle the stress at AFA, which can unnerve anyone. I don't know why but many service people have said that Direct Entry makes a better choice. Your memory s...

congrats DHRUV for ur success. do u have any info on whether those who have cleared PABT earlier on old machines will again have to appear for the same on new ones? :?: Since PABT is a "once in a lifetime" test, you cannot administer it again. But it should be conducted just to see how they fare in...

Sagz, First we were given the tests with traditional booklets for INS-B and OIR. Fairly easy. PABT is also very easy on those basic machines and there are a few loopholes one can exploit. Then we had new tests on experimental basis. New Tests - Around 25 LCD screens were there, and just 2 new PABT m...

Arun, I am not underrating SSB. I know how tough it is. And the selection rate says it all, only some 10 get selected out of a batch. I have seen figure drop even to 2 in a batch in Allahbad. The toughness is well realised when they announce screening and final results - nobody is sure of a place. B...

Hi guys, I also gave my SSB for 114 NDA course this January. My centre was 2 AFSB Mysore. Those 6 days were probably the best time I have had. I was able to clear the SSB and also medicals. The best part was the new PABT machine that have been installed at AFSB. As of now they were on experimental s...
