    Re: Am I eligible for AFCAT having backlog in 2nd semester?

    Hello my friend ,
    For your kind information I would like to tell you that whether you apply for the Examination or not ,
    but at right know you are not an eligible candidate for applying the AFCAT ( Indian Air Force Common Admission Test )
    Examination .
    This is because the AFCAT Examination can be applied only by the passed out graduates only and
    since you are not a passed out graduate so after clearing the examination you will be not called for the SSB Rounds .

    But the Backlog is also to be considered for the AFCAT examination .
    Now if you have a backlog than you are also not an eligible candidate for applying the AFCAT Examination .
    The AFCAT examination is conducted by the Indian Air force itself every year for all the graduates
    ,i.e, both boys and girls graduate are eligible for applying the AFCAT examination .
    But the AFCAT examination can be applied only by the Indian born candidates .
    The age criteria for applying the AFCAT Examination is n19 to 27 years .

    Through the AFCAT examination You can enter any of the Branch of the Indian Air Force given below -:
    1) Technical branch
    2) Flying branch
    3) Ground duty branch

    So thank you my friend for asking and try to clear your backlog first .
