Another shining example from Centurion Defence Academy has proven that staying the course and having unwavering resolve always pays off. Ayushi Patel, a student from Kendriya Vidyalaya SGPGI Lucknow, has cleared her SSB interview for the NDA 149th course from 22 SSB Bhopal with the goal of joining the prestigious National Defence Academy. Ayushi had also participated in the SSB interview for the NDA 148th course but had been conferenced out. Despite this, Ayushi persisted and, after passing the SSB interview from the same board where she had been excluded in her initial attempt, earned the All India Rank 115 in the NDA 149th course final merit list. There were 34 candidates reported for the batch of August 25–29, 2022, at 22 SSB Bhopal; however, only 30 were selected for further evaluation, and just four were recommended, including our iconic Ayushi Patel.
Even though Ayushi finally fulfilled her aim of joining the prestigious NDA in her second attempt, she improved both her performance and personality during her preparation at Centurion under the one-on-one supervision and personalized training offered by Sir Shishir Dixit and other SSB mentors. As a result, Ayushi’s unshakable determination, tenacity, and devotion enabled her to accomplish her goal. Ayushi made the entire team at Centurion Defence Academy proud by landing her at NDA owing to her great dedication and resilience. Ayushi’s achievement in the NDA exam serves as motivation for hundreds of young girls who want to join the Indian Armed Forces and do their best to serve the nation.
