Lucknow resident Ravi Prakash Yadav, who was a student of Centurion Defence Academy, has brought laurels by passing out from NDA.

Another student of Centurion Defence Academy, Shashwat Dwivedi, has a similar story filled with struggles, challenges, failures, and then success and glory. Shashwat Dwivedi, who hails from Unnao district of UP, also passed out from the 146th Course of the NDA. After many NDA and TES attempts, he got success through the NDA entry in his 9th and last attempt. Shashwat fulfilled his dream of joining NDA by securing AIR 161 in the 146th course. Shashwat’s story is a great source of inspiration for those who get disappointed after failing in their initial attempts to join the National Defence Academy.
