Q. What to join after 10+2 NDA or AF X/Y ?
It depends upon personal preference as both the exams have different syllabus,
difficulty level, job profile etc. But, if one joins our NDA foundation batch which covers the syllabus of both exams in a comprehensive way, a student can easily clear both the X/Y group and NDA exams. We already have such students in our institute who have cleared NDA as well as Airforce X.
