Kreeshma Naval Selection Board

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

Praveen Udaya Kumar SSB

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.

Monika Kumari Services Selection Board

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.
