    Hello my friend ,
    I think that you are fortunate that you have been selected for the recruitment of Group - Y ( Non - Technical )
    candidates . After completing your recruitment process you will become an airmen in the Indian Air Force .

    And the payment for the Airmen of the Indian Air Force are good but not much .
    But as you have know completed your B.Sc graduate .
    It will be good if you apply for the post of cadre in the Indian Air Force than the Air men post which is considered on the
    basis of your 10+2 level education .
    And to apply for the post of cadre in the Indian Air Force it is sufficient that you are a Bachelor's degree holder and so there is no need for you to go for further studies .

    You can apply for the cadre post in the Indian Air Force .
    And this Examination is Indian Air Force Common Admission Test ( AFCAT ) .
    Through this examination you can enter the Indian Air Force services as an cadre .
    After passing this examination you will be selected for the Air Force Academy
    on the basis of medical and SSB Rounds and there you will be given your training courses .
    After completing your course you will be selected as an cadre in the Indian Air force .

    You can become cadre in the following Branch of the Indian Air Force through the AFCAT Examination -:
    1) Technical branch
    2) Flying branch
    3) Ground duty branch

    The AFCAT Examination is conducted by the Indian Army itself and they conduct it once each year .
    The AFCAT examination can be applied by all the Indian Born Graduates .
    They must be graduates from a recognised university of India .

    To apply for the cadre post in the branches of the Indian Air Force through the AFCAT examination
    you need to fulfill the eligibility criteria for that Academy which are as follows -:

    a) The Eligibility criteria for applying the post of Flying Branch through AFCAT are -:
    1. You must be a citizen of India .
    2. You can be unmarried or married candidate.
    3. Your age must be between 19 to 23 years
    4. You should have a Bachelorís degree in any field with 60% Marks from a recognized University . You must have
    passed 12th Examination with Maths and Physics subjects selected in your 10+2 level of Board education .
    5. Physical Criteria :
    Your Minimum height should be 162.5 cms with healthy weight .
    The length of your legs in a stretch should be Minimum 99 cms and Maximum 120 cms . Your Thigh length should not cross 64cms .
    While sitting your height should fall as Minimum 81.5 cms and Maximum 96 cms .
    The vision of your eyes should almost be perfect 6/6 and 6/9 of either eyes .

    b) The Eligibility criteria for applying the service of Ground Duty Branches are -:
    1. You must be a citizen of India .
    2. You have to be unmarried if your age is below 25 unless you can be married .
    3. If you are an Graduates than your age should be between 20 to 23 years .
    4. For the post of Administration and Logistics -: You should have passed your B.Sc graduation with a minimum of 60% marks
    in all papers attempted or a degree in diploma .

    Since you are an B.Sc Graduate , so you cannot apply for the cadre post in the Technical branch of the Indian Air Force
    because it can be applies only by the Engineer graduates .

    HI,
    Yes you can pursue your graduation, so that you will have a good payband. But if you want to join as a airman thats also a wise decision.

    But the promotions would be a bit slow in this case.


    all the best!!!
