The UPSC NDA 2 cut-off marks and the candidates’ mark sheets will be published on the official website of the commission after the final result. The estimated cut-off scores for the written exam are given here in the table for candidates to view.

Note: When two or more candidates obtained the same total score in the NDA & NA Examination (II), 2021, the tie(s) were resolved using the following guidelines that were accepted by the Commission:

  • In the case of an equal score altogether, the applicant who is older may be given a higher rank; and
  • If two candidates are the same age and receive the same total score, the candidate with the higher overall score in the written exams may be given a higher ranking.

Candidates need to pass each subject with minimum 25% marks. However there is no sectional cut off. The cutoff for written exam is cumulative of marks of both the subjects (Mathematics and General Ability Test).
