Based on the analysis done we can presume about the cut-off marks for NDA 2 2019 written examination:


  • Of candidates given examination
  • Total No. of Vacancies
  • Difficulty level of examination


The cut-off marks will be based on the maximum marks of both the papers i.e. 900 marks.  Along with the overall cut-off UPSC also releases sectional cut-off for the paper. This sectional cut-off marks also varies in different NDA examination, like in NDA 1 2019 it was 25% for each section in NDA 1 & 2 2016 it was 20% for each section.

The final cut-off is made on the basis of the combined marks of written examination and SSB interview of 900 each.

In case of “tie” in the final merit list following points are considered:

In case two candidates secure equal aggregate marks the following tie-breaking policy is applied:

  • The candidate with higher marks in written examination is placed at the higher rank.
  • The candidate getting higher marks in the second paper i.e. of GAT will get higher rank.
  • In case both the candidate get equal marks in GAT, the senior candidate i.e. more in age will be placed higher.
