NDA Qualifying Marks 2021

To qualify in the NDA 2021 exam, applicants must score equal to or more than 25% marks in each subject. The NDA GAT paper is of 600 marks wherein candidates must secure at least 150 marks to qualify.

How the NDA written exam score is calculated?

The NDA score calculation method for NDA GAT and math paper is the same. But the marking scheme of both the NDA papers is different. The formula for calculating the NDA GAT and mathematics score is mentioned below:

  • Total NDA GAT score = (Number of correct answers x 4) - (Number of incorrect answers x 0.33)
  • Total NDA mathematics score = (Number of right answers x 2.5) - (Number of wrong answers x 0.33)
