When it comes to training and preparing yourself for an admission in the National Defence Academy, you will need to first get a training at the Sainik school Nalanda. This is a must do step when it comes to making sure that you get an easy entry into the National Defence Academy.

What is the Sainik School Nalanda?

Located in the district called Nalanda in Bihar, the Sainik School is mainly a training school for all those boys who are hoping for a career in the National Defence Academy. The main aim of this school is mostly to cater to a body from the economically weaker sections of the society and train them well so that they may join the NDA. It is currently situated in a village called Nanand in the Nalanda district. Since the training that needs to be provided is quite a rigorous and time consuming one, all these schools are residential. There are a total of 25 such Sainik schools throughout the country which trains young boys to become ideal candidates for the NDA. The courses and training are quite tough and demanding when it comes to the NDA and you will need to train your body and mind for such a demanding schedule. So the earlier you start the better it will be for you in the long run. And this is exactly what the Sainik school Nalanda provides. It was set up in the month of October in 2003 and it has been preparing boys into promising cadets for the NDA, since then. It is pretty young compared to many other institutions but they do have a very promising graph which attracts more and more students to it every year. In its 15 years of existence, it has already bagged many accolades. It has already been adjudged as the best of all the five Sainik schools that are operating the central zone of the country for producing candidates of academic excellence and also providing the highest number of properly trained cadets for the NDA. The students of the Sainik school Nalanda are also known to have topped the CBSE examinations that are conducted in the country.

How to get an admission in Sainik School Nalanda?              

The admission process is quite a long one when it comes to the Sainik School. It is not simply based on which school you approach, appear for an interview and the child will be absorbed into the curriculum of the school. Those who are interested will have to appear for an all Indian examination, known as the All India Sainik Schools Entrance Examination. It is conducted on a yearly basis, where every year they take in candidates and assign them to any one of the 25 schools that are there in this country. The candidates are accorded schools based on their performance in the examination. However faring well in the examination does not imply that you will surely get admission in a Sainik School because you will have to clear a medical examination which will deem you to be mentally and physically fit first, which if you don’t, you will not be eligible for admission.

If you are thinking about applying for admission to the Sainik school Nalanda, then there are a few simple steps that you will have to follow. Let us take a look at what you need to do, step by step.

Step 1: Checking the eligibility criteria

The admissions at the Sainik schools are conducted for two age groups- one for admission in class VI and the other for admission in class IX. The exams are held annually for both these classes through all India examinations. There are some very specific eligibility criteria for each of these two classes.

Class Eligibility criteria
Class VI Only those who are below 11 years but have completed 10 years are allowed admission under this category. Every time the application forms are released, the birth date period is categorically marked, which needs to be carefully checked before applying.
Class IX Candidates who are below 14 years but have completed 13 years are allowed admission in this category. When applying for the Sainik school Nalanda do not forget to check the birth date period specified before applying.

Step 2: Filling out the application form

Once the eligibility criteria have been met, you will need to pick up the application form and fill it up with correct details, to the best of your knowledge. These application forms can be downloaded online and need to be filled out and then submitted to mentioned offices. This form can be filled out only in Hindi or English. Postcard size photographs will be required when you submit the form, so make sure you have your recent photographs ready to be submitted along with the form. Avoid overwriting or cutting out words that you have already written because then the application might be subjected to rejection.

Step 3: Registration fee submission and admit card collection

Every application form needs to be submitted with the payment of registration fees of Rs. 400/- for general category students and Rs. 250/- for SC and ST students. Admit cards are generally sent to the candidate’s registered address, but if you do not receive one then you can get in touch with the principal of the Sainik school Nalanda with the necessary details of your application form and receive the admit card from there. The centre will you be sitting for the examination will be provided in the admit card itself. After you receive the admit card, it is only a matter of time before you sit for the examinations.

There are reservations when it comes to the intake of candidates as mandated by the Central Government, which the schools follow when it comes to admission in the Sainik school Nalanda. To know more about Sainik School Ghorakhal, visit here.
