Rashtriya Indian Military College Entrance Exam


Before introducing RIMC Coaching , we must first understand what Rashtriya Indian Military College is all about. RIMC has a long history and rich traditions. Over the year’s the alumni have produced many leaders of the society, both military as well as civil, which included four Chiefs of Army Staff, two Chiefs of the Air staff and one Chief of Naval Staff in India; one Commander-in-Chief of the Army and two Chiefs of the Air Staff in Pakistan; scores of officers of General/Flag/Air rank, Commanding Corps, Fleets, Wings and Divisions and other distinguished appointments on both the sides of the border. Besides, many high civilian dignitaries like Governors, Ambassadors, Ministers and Captains of industry have passed through the hallowed portals of the RIMC. Portraits of such luminaries adorn our walls at strategic places as inspiring beacons for young students of the day.

VISION : The purpose of this Institution was to provide Indian Boys with suitable education and training to ensure a high pass-rate for the Indians being sent to the Royal Military College, Sandhurst, as part of the Indianisation program of the Officer cadre of the Indian Army. RIMC was not, in fact, a College, but a pre Sandhurst institution run along the lines of an English Public School. The British believed that to become an Army Officer, if an education in Britain was impossible, a public school education in India was an absolute necessity. The British believed that public school education was particularly necessary for Indian Boys, whose up bringing made them suitable for the rigors and self-discipline of army life. Hence, with this vision to lay the foundation for the selected young men, the College makes endeavor to enable them to manage the National security affairs in later life, to become a feeder institution to NDA, NAVAC, and also enable Cadets to apply for CME & Technical entry (CTW) and any other schemes from where Cadets can join the Defence Services.

WHY RIMC :  The Rashtriya Indian Military College is a ‘Nursery of Leadership’ for institutions like National Defence Academy, Khadakvasla, Officers’ Training Academy, Chennai, and Indian Military Academy, Dehradun. The College provides public school education to young boys in the age group of 11 1/2 to 18 years, specially selected through an All India Competitive Examination. A dedicated feeder to the National Defence Academy and the NAVAC Academy, the College aims to send maximum Boys to the NDA/NAVAC. Hence it lays emphasis on complete education and all round personality development of the cadets. However, if the Cadet is Unable to join the NDA due to rare or unavoidable reason, he attains enough proficiency like those who have gone on to becoming bureaucrats, lawyers, engineers and journalists, holding the RIMC Falg aloft in all the avenues they endeavoured in.

ACADEMICS : The College is administered by the Union Ministry of Defence, through the Directorate General of Military Training, Army. RIMC holds the Limca Book of Records of being the first Military School in India where exams for Class X and XII are conducted twice a year, in the month of May and November. These exams/certifications are recognized by the CBSE. The College offers only the Science Stream at the +2 level. However, to prepare the Cadets for the UPSC examination for entry into NDA, Social Sciences are also taught. The curriculum requirements are exacting yet exciting in their variety. Every activity is objective based and precisely timed to mould future leaders and render holistic development.

Periodic tests are held regularly to ensure that the Cadets grasp and assimilate the course of study covered in each month. After the term end examination, each Cadet’s academic record is comprehensively analysed and his position in class decided; both curricular and extracurricular achievements of a term are recorded in his dossier. Due weightage is also given to the sessional work done by a Cadet both in terms of class work and homework for his promotion to the next class. Cadets are familiarized with the modern objective type of questions to prepare them to competently face the UPSC Examination for entry into the NDA and NAVAC. RIMC has shown excellent results in sending more than 81% cadets to NDA from each course (as compared to the National average which stands at 0.6 %).
