  • In simple terms, the GAT paper of the NDA exam contains a total of 150 questions out of which 50 questions belong to the English section and the rest 100 questions belong to the GK portion.

 

  • The General Knowledge portion of the GAT paper of the NDA exam broadly covers subjects like Physics, Chemistry, General Science, Social Studies, Geography, and Current Events.
