    Re: Way to join Indian Air Force? Age limit and qualification?

    Hello

    It is comparatively difficult for girls to join Air Force to that of boys,but still you have various opportunities to take advantage of.
    You can join Air Force only after completing graduation and not before that.

    There are three branches of Air Force
    1)Flying Branch 2)Technical Branch 3)Ground Duty Branch.

    In order to apply for flying branch, you will have to do so through AFCAT(Air Force Common Admission Test).
    The educational qualification required to apply for AFCAT is graduation from any stream with 60%, but with physics and maths in 10+2.
    Age limit is 19 to 23 years(at the time of commencement of the course,not at the time of applying).

    In order to apply for Technical Branch,you will have to do so through AFCAT,the educational qualification required is a engineering degree with minimum 60%.
    Age limit is 19 to 23 years(at the time of commencement of the course,not at the time of applying).

    In order to apply for Ground Duty Branch,you need to do so through AFCAT,the educational qualification is graduation from any stream with 60%.
    Age limit is 19 to 23 years(at the time of commencement of the course,not at the time of applying).

    Hence you try to choose science in 10+2,later graduation can be done from any stream.

    For more details visit the website of Air Force.

    Re: Way to join Indian Air Force? Age limit and qualification?

    In Airforce there are many jobs . There are some Low level posts and some High level posts .

    ~~ Minimum Qualification to join in Airforce is 12th with PCM subjects . So, you can join in Airforce after 12th .
    Remember in 12th , you should take PCM as your subjects

    P-Physics
    C-Chemistry
    M-Maths


    Generally, after 12th , you can apply for the NDA exam to join in Airforce
    Age limit for the NDA exam is 16.5 to 19 years
    Only Unmarried MALE candidates are eligible for the exam


    So, if you wish you can join Airforce after 12th . But , you maynot get Highlevel posts after 12th . Thatmeans with 12th as Qualification , you cannot get High level posts in Airforce .


    For the High level posts or Officer level posts , you should complete Graduation .
    Graduation shouldbe completed from any Recognised university
    After Graduation , there are different entry schmes and different posts to apply for .

    AFCAT exam , CDS exam , etc.. are there to join in Airforce after Graduation .

    AFCAT will have 3 branches like , Technical , Ground duty and Flying branch

    Through CDS exam , you can join in Flying branch of Airforce



    ~ It is very good that , if you complete MBA , then you can apply for the post of MANAGER in Airports Authority of India

    Hey friend,

    With having completed only 10th you are not eligible for joining in Indian AIr Force at this stage as you are not satisfied the needed qualification for joining.

    You are lacking in the Education qualification which is needed for joining in Indian Air Force

    It is good to see your interest in joining in Indian Air Force but joining in it is possible by writing the entrance exam for it and the exam can be written with the minimum qualification.The minimum Education qualification needed for applying for the entrance exam to join in Indian Air force is that the candidate must have completed +2 from a recognized school board of education with a fair percentage and in the case of joining in Indian Air force the candidate need to have completed +2 with Physics and Mathematics as subjects.

    If you are going to possess this qualification then you can apply for the entrance exam which is the NDA Exam and this exam is conducted every year.

    Apart from the education qualification the candidate need to be a Citizen of India and the candidate should be a Unmarried male candidate

    The age limit for the exam must be 16 1/2-19 years of age and the candidate need to be Physically fit while appearing for the NDA Exam

    So,it is better that you satisfy all these criteira's for the exam and then apply for the NDA Exam to join in Indian Air Force

    For more info regarding the exam check at www.upsc.gov.in

    ALL THE BEST
