What Our Students Have to Say

Defence Academy has been a life changing experience. All tutors and management is super freindly and have immense knowledge to help you prepare for Defence exams. Now I am posted in Indian Navy

The overall SSB training you get from here is good. We were given many classes of practice of each tests and review from Retd. Colonel. Though SSB can't be taught we can learn where and how we need to describe ourself at the SSB.
Praveen Udaya Kumar
This academy provides you excellent support and confidence to clear examination as well as SSB. The only academy where officers help you and gives you feedback. I was allowed to attend demo classes from ex-officers which inspired me to join this academy.
