    Re: Eligibility for AFCAT this year if completing engineering next year?

    as you are advancing in 7th sem now. so you will be eligible for AFCAT -I in 2013
    but not in 2012.
    Moreover, as per the date you posted i.e. 27 june, you can see that the notification says that
    You should submit the proof of your eligibility latest by 15 june,2013.
    But you said, you will be getting in july next year

    But dont worry, 6 more months, you can apply for AFCAT-I in 2013. keep checking careerairforce.nic.in for more details.
