    Dear student,
    There is no difference in the NDA-1 and NDA-2 exams,,except the fact that these are conducted in two different seasons of the same year.
    So ,If you are eligible to appear for NDA-1 exams,then you can also appear for the NDA-2 exams,,provided you don't cross the age limits.
    As for preparation,the questions asked are very basic in nature.
    So you needn't follow any special books.The books you have been using since your class 8 till the intermediate are just enough.
    You can also refer to the NCERT books in particular,as they provide knowledge till depth.
    Good luck.

    dear friend,

    There is no difference between the NDA-I and NDA-II. Both have same syllabus, same exam pattern, same eligibility criteria. The difference is that both are conducted in different month of a year. If you cleared the NDA-I then you does not need to apply for NDA-II. if by chance you does not cleared the NDA-I then you can apply for NDA-II but the thing is that you must satisfy the eligibility Criteria.

    In NDA questions are of 12th level. so for preparation follow the NCERT books.


    Good Luck.........

    Re: What is the difference between NDA(I) and NDA(II)? Am I eligible to appear in NDA(II) again if appearing in NDA(I) exam? Which book is considered best for the preparation of NDA exam?

    National Defense Academy and Naval Academy Examination (NDA/NA) is held twice a year.
    once in the month of april called NDA I and once in the month of august called NDA II.

    you can apply for NDA I or NDA II as long as your age is between 16.5 to 19 years .

    some books for the preparation of the NDA examination are as follows.:

    NDA I and NDA II both are the same exam with different names because they are taken at two different times............
    Both are the exams for the selection process for the defence jobs in India.....
    No doubt if you are appeared in the NDA I then also you can apply for the NDA II but your age must be within the limit i,e. 16.5 to 19 years......
    You must be 12th pass to apply for this exam and also you must be the citizen of India......
    There are so many books in market you can follow any one of them but give more importance to solving the previous years question...........

    The best way is to study the previous year question papers available in the website of UPSC

    Previous year question papers,in the website of upsc.
    Also R.S Agarwal aptitude test papers are good practice.

    There is no defference in NDA 1 and NDA 2 because NDA is the examination which is conducted twice in a year so it is named as NDA 1 and NDA 2 so never take these as different things.
    Yes definitely you can apply for the NDA 2 as well if you have applied for the NDA 1.
    Because this the examination which never bound the candidates to apply for more than once.
    So it will be good if you apply again for the exam if you are not sure that examination is not gone good.
    Or if you have not got the call for the SSB.
    Only you need to fulfil the criteria of the NDA examination which i have mentioned as follows-
    You must have passed class 12th in any stream if applying for the indian army.
    You need to have physics and maths in class 12th if you want to apply for the air force and navy.
    Your age must be 16.5 to 19 years .
    Age relaxation is not there.
    Boys are only eligible for the examination.so girls should not apply for the same.
    Selection procedure for the examination is as follows-
    Written examination.
    SSB interview.
    Medical examination.
    For more details log on to www.upsc.gov.in
    Thank you.
