    If you have done 12TH or appearing for 12th exams,in only case if you have studied maths and physics then you can appear for NDA (National Defense Academy) exam conducted by


    UPSC twice a year to select officers for all 3 defense forces.




    If you have done GRADUATION then you can appear for CDS exam,this exam is also conducted by UPSC (Union Public Service Commission) 2 times a year.


    But if you have done ENGINEERING then you can apply for UES (University entry scheme). In this 3rd year engineering candidate can apply.


    YOu can apply for AFCAT exam conducted by Air-force itself.You need to have 60% marks for that.


    You can also apply for different fields in Air-force mentioned follows:


    1.Flying branch.
