    Are you Indian Citizen?
    If yes then SS3 certificate is required and if you are not Indian Citizen then forget about it because NDA is for entrance to Indian defence forces and only Indian citizens from around the world can apply for this.

  2. Please may I know more about the follows:
    My son sat for jamb this year and pick NDA as first choice of school (University)

    OR is there one before now?
    I will be glad to get a prompt response.
