    Re: Basic qualification and procedure to join Air Force?

    Hello,

    The basic qualification to join the air force after graduation or while you are in final year of graduation is to have physics and maths as your subjects in 12 class and to fullfill age criteria usually 19-23 years . After doing graduation, you can enter into air force by giving CDS examination. Which is a written exam after passing you will appear for SSB and your name in merit list will confirm your successfull enrollment in air force.

    Other than this, you can also appear for CET (Common Entrance Test) for ground duty in air force. While as you are doing your B.tech in electronics and instrumentation, you can also be a part of technical branch in air force through EKT.

    Other than these options, there are also chances to appear for short service selection for flying branch. But for this you need to have 60% in your graduation with physics and math in 12 class.

    Thank you

    Re: Basic qualification and procedure to join Air Force?

    dear...


    The basic qualification to join the air force after graduation or while you are in final year of graduation is to have physics and maths as your subjects in 12 class and to fullfill age criteria usually 19-23 years .

    After doing graduation, you can enter into air force by giving CDS examination.

    Which is a written exam after passing you will appear for SSB and your name in merit list will confirm your successfull enrollment in air force.

    Other than this, you can also appear for CET (Common Entrance Test) for ground duty in air force.

    While as you are doing your B.tech in electronics and instrumentation, you can also be a part of technical branch in air force through EKT.

    Other than these options, there are also chances to appear for short service selection for flying branch.

    But for this you need to have 60% in your graduation with physics and math in 12 class.
