    Hello Sir,

    Being a graduate you can apply for Indian Air Force via graduate level entry schemes.
    For serving as an Air Man, you require 50% aggregate in your engineering.
    Hence, you are applicable for it.

    But for Flying Branches, Air Force demands 60% marks.
    So, sorry but you are not qualified.

    Best Of Luck

    Hello my dear Friend


    There are So many options are available for the Indian Air Force

    Like CDS and AFCAT are The Entrance Exams for the Indian Air force

    Compared the Percentage you are Not Eligible to apply for the AFCAT Examination

    Since you must have Minimum 60% of marks are Required for the AFCAT Examination

    There are Two Branches which offers the Any graduate with Minimum 60% of marks from the Recognized university/College

    So you did not have that Much percentage That is why you are Not Eligible for the AFCAT


    Coming to another Exam called CDS is the One way to get in to the Indian Air force

    For this you must have Graduate in B.sc or Engineering (Any Stream )

    The Age should be in between 19-23 years for Indian Air force wing


    So
    you are Eligible to Apply for the CDS Examination

    Another Exam called UES this also requires the Students from the Aeronautical engineering (Both Mechanical and Electrical )

    For
    UES ( University Entry Scheme ) also you are not eligible to applyThat is all


    It was pleasure to help you

    Good luck

    Friend,

    After the Graduation you can join Indian Air force by the CDS exam or by the AFCAT exam. The AFCAT exam mainly conducted for the Indian Air force only.

    => For the AFCAT Exam you are not Eligible because the candidates have to hold aggregate of 60% in the Graduation so you are not eligible for the AFCAT exam.

    => But you can apply for the CDS exam. The candidates who want to join for the Indian Air force, Indian Naval Academy and Indian Military Academy such candidates can apply for the CDS exam.

    So Instead of Applying for the AFCAT exam you have to apply for the CDS exam. In order to apply for the CDS exam you have to full fill the all the requirements of the CDS exam.

    * Education Qualification
    You have to clear Graduation from the recognize college and also you have to hold Physics and Mathematics in the Intermediate level.

    * Age limit
    For the Air force 19-23 years

    Physical Requirements
    The height should be minimum 162.5 cm and weight should be correlated with height. In addition to this you have to full fill remaining special requirements of he Indian Air force like Sitting height, Leg length, Thigh length etc

    For the Year 2014 CDS I exam is going to be conducted on 09.02.2014 (SUNDAY)

    Thank You.
