UPSC NDA admit card is nothing but hall ticket to appear for NDA exam. NDA written exam is conducted twice a year, in April and September. We fill the exam form 3 months before written exam. But what is the valid document or identity proof while giving the NDA exam?


After filling NDA form, we get “NDA Application form PDF” but it cannot be a proof for giving writen exam. Roughly around 3 weeks before NDA exam, you get NDA Admit Card (Hall Ticket) which contain exam specific details like:

  1. Exam Centre

This NDA Admit Card is the valid proof and your entry pass to give NDA written exam.

Why should you preserve your NDA Admit Card? (Very Imp)

  • I recieve many messages from NDA aspirants that they do not have NDA Admit Card when the NDA written exam result is declared. You must know that recovering Admit Card at that moment is next to impossible.
  • NDA Admit Card 2020 will be required for SSB Interview after clearing NDA exam.

Real Example of CDS aspirant (defence exam after graduation):

During SSB interview, one aspirant was asked regarding his number of attempts for CDS exam. Then the interviewer asked aspirant to get the last 3 attempts Admit Card to check whether he keeps record of previous attempts or not.

So, its better to have a discipline in life.
