    Whether you have completed in 3 years or 5 years that does not matter only age and qualififcation matters because if you have completed the graduationj in 3 years but your age is more than 25 then you cannot apply for any of the post.
    But if you have completed graduation in five years and your age is less than 25 yers then you can apply for any of the post.
    So do not worry for the years of graduation just worry for the written examination.
    You can apply for the flying branch of the indian air force because there is a requirement for the graduation with physics and maths to apply for the same but make sure your percentage in graduation must be 60% marks.
    If you not have the same then you cannot apply for the same as well.
    Your age needs to be 23 years to apply for the same.
    If your age is more than 23 years then you need to go for the CDS examination for other wing and that is indian army.
    To apply for the indian army your age must be 19 to 24 years in IMA and for OTA 19 to 25 years of age is required.

    Thank you.

    There is no problem with 5 year completion of engineering.Just keep in mind that you should have over 60% in aggregate (which you have) and there should be no pending backlogs as stated in the AFCAT notification clearly.If you satisfy these two criterias,you will be eligible for AFCAT Technical branch after B.Tech.You can apply till the age of 28years for Technical branch of AFCAT.Apply whenever the next notification comes out and prpare hard both for the written exam and the physical tests.Check out the website of Indian Air Force to get more details about AFCAT and also to get previous year questions of AFCAT.
