    CDSE is specially for graduates,it is a graduate entry.
    CDSE is conducted twice in a year,the notifications are released in the month of May and October.

    CDSE will allow to apply for all three wings.

    Now after that there is AFCAT(Air Force Common Admission Test)
    The AFCAT is conducted for entry only in air force.
    Air Force have three branches
    1)Flying Branch
    2)Technical Branch
    3)Ground Duty Branch

    Through AFCAT you can apply for all three branches simultaneously depending on your qualifications.
    AFCAT is also conducted twice in a year ,the notifications are released in the month of June and December.

    Periodically notifications of various jobs in navy, notifications are also released.

    There are a number of ways in which one could get a commission in the Army. You can join right after school or after graduation. The selection procedures are impartial, objective and are uniformly applied to one and all and have only one aim – to “select the best”.
