With the completion of the NDA 2 2021 examination, it’s time to take a look at the overall difficulty level and the expected result date.


The candidates reported that the mathematics paper had a moderate level of difficulty. However, most of the candidates were of the opinion that a majority of the questions were outside the NCERT curriculum. It was seen that a majority of the questions from this paper were asked from Calculus. However, this has not been the case. The GAT paper, held in the second shift of the examination, had a difficulty level between moderate to high.

According to the candidates, the English section turned out to be the easiest of all the GAT sections. Most of the aspirants could attempt the maximum number of questions from this section. However, they claimed that vocabulary-based questions, idioms & phrases and sentence reordering were somewhat difficult.

Soon after the completion of the examination, several coaching websites have released the NDA 2 2021 answer key which the candidates can refer to and calculate a tentative score. However, they must also check the official answer key as soon as it is released on The commission has not announced any specific date for releasing the NDA 2 2021 result.
