    The age limit for the Indian Airforce is different for the different posts. If you are thinking to apply through the NDA then age limit should be 16 year to 19 years and if you are thinking to apply through CDS then 18 years to 25 years. But for the others posts the minimum age limit should be 18 years.

    Re: Age limit for Indian Air Force?

    If your wish is to join only Indian Air force then you have only one option that is Ground duty branch through AFCAT .

    You are a non technical graduate hence you will not be eligible for flying branch or technical branch of Indian Air force.

    If you wish to join Army then you can apply for CDS exam also but your age must be below 25 years for CDS and AFCAT.

    I think you have written wrong date of birth in this question. Please mention your correct date of birth.

    Graduation percentage doesn't matter in Defence exams . You have to score good marks in the objective type paper and SSB interview to join indian defence.

    Medical fitness is the uppermost criteria . If you are found medically unfit after you clear all the exams then you will be rejected .

    So make sure that you are medically fit to join defence .

    So don't worry about you graduation percentage and start preparing for the written exams . Take some sample papers or previous year papers of the exam and get use to the format of the exam.

    Dear

    I Think Here You Have Mentioned The Wrong Date Of Birth
    With The Compare of Above Date of Birth You are Not Eligible to Join in Indian Air Force And With This age You May Not Be Completed The Graduation.So I Think You Have Enter The Wrong Year.Just Check it and Than Follow The Following Information

    You said That You Have Completed The Graduation from The B.Com With 39% Marks.So Actually are Two Exams To Join in Indian Air Force.Those are CDS and AFCAT Exam.But Here You are Eligible for The CDS Exam Only But Not for The AFCAT Exam.Why Because for The AFCAT Exam Have To Secure The 60% Marks That is The Reason You are Not Eligible for The AFCAT Exam.So Now You Have Only One Exam To Join in Indian Air Force After Your Educational Qualifications.
    That Exam Name is CDS Exam.CDS Means Combined Defence Service.This CDS Exam is Conducting by The Union Public Service Commission Two Times in a Every Year.For This CDS Exam All Males and Females are Eligible and Should be Done The Any Graduation from The Any Discipline University and age Should be between 19-23 Years
    These are The Details

    Firslty , a B.com graduate can apply for the CDS exam , AFCAT exam to join in Airforce .

    Secondly , you mentioned that , Your DOB is 08-08-2011 . I think , by mistake you have mentioned your DOB wrongly .
