    If your age allows you to apply then definitely you can apply for the same.
    Basically in AFCAT examination post graduate mostly apply for the ground duty branch in educational department.
    So if you are post graduate in any discipline with 50% marks then you can apply for the ground duty branch .
    Your age should be 20 to 25 years of age to apply for the same.
    If you had MED/PHD/CA/ICWA then age needs to be 20 to 27 years for the same.
    you can also apply for the administration department if 50% in PG.
    You need to apply for the ground duty branch to get selected.

    thank you.

    Dear Candidate,

    Yes you are eligible for the AFCAT.

    But when you are applying for a certain post the graduation percentile criteria changes from the post to post.

    So check the advertisement carefully before the application process.

    So that you are having a successful submission of application,if any mistakes found then the application may be rejected.

    The students of the 12th are not allowed for this AFCAT process.

    And one more thing there is no registration fee for the registration process.

    So you can freely register for the eligible post in the AFA(AirForceAcademy).


    After applying the application they will be sending the hall ticket or you may download it from the site after few days as per their instructions.

    The Exam Pattern:
    • Written Test
    • Physical Test
    • Interview
    If you are selected in all these rounds and cleared those rounds then you are selected for the training process.


    Hope this info helps you.



    All the best for your future endeavor's.



    Any more Queries.
    Don't Hesitate to ask me. Am happy to help you always. Just ping to my profile.


    Best Regards,
    Sampath.

    Re: Am I eligible to join AFCAT having completed post-graduation?

    Yes definitely Post Graduates are eligible for AFCAT but you have to fulfill age criteria also to become eligible for it.

    AFCAT is Air Force Common Admission Test.

    You can join Air Force in following branches through AFCAT:

    -Flying Branch (Age should be between 19 to 23 years)

    -Technical Branch (Age should be between 19 to 28 years)

    -Ground Duty Branch (Age should be between 19 to 23 for Graduates) For upper qualification like Post Graduation the age limit is 19 to 25 years.

    The basic qualification for appearing in AFCAT is Graduation but if you are applying for Flying and Technical Branch then you must be from Maths and Physics field.

    The selection will be based on the performance in the Written Examination, SSB interview and medical examination.

    For Flying Branch there will be one more test which is PABT(Pilot Aptitude Battery Test) and you have to pass this test to join flying branch.

    You must have very good eyesight and physical fitness if you want to join Air Force.

    Hello

    No YOU ARE NOT ELIGIBLE FOR AFCAT WITH 55%.

    AFCAT entry scheme and requirements.
    Flying Branch-graduation in any stream with 60 minimum with physics and maths in 10+2
    Technical Branch-A engineering degree with minimum 60%.
    Ground Duty Branch-Graduation in any stream,with minimum 60%.

    AFCAt requires minimum 60%.
    You can not apply for Air Force.(Through AFCAT).

    One mode left is CDSE-Combined Defense Service Examination.
    Graduation from any stream with physics and maths but with no percentage.
