There is no doubt that the National Defense Academy is one of the top notch academies for military education in the world.

There is pride, respect and honor in serving the nation and that is why the admission in the National Defense Academy is well earned. Many students who aspire to become an officer begin their journey by taking coaching for their entrance exams from 11th standard and also built their physical strength side by side. There is no doubt that the student has to go through a demanding criterion before they get selected in the NDA but the rewards of passing out the National Defense Academy out weights the hard work one has to put in when they finally passes out the National Defense Academy and holds the position in the Indian defense force. It’s incomparable to any other achievement. Respect and Honor are the only words that come to my mind when it comes to such an elite institute.
