    Re: What are the qualifications and other criteria required to join the Indian Air Force?

    hello my friend ,
    In order to fulfill your required criteria I'm going to help you on all the required basis .
    So If you want to join the Indian Air force after completing your 12th class than you have to
    go through the NDA ( National defence Academy ) examination .

    Actually you can even apply for the NDA Examination when you are studying in your class 12th in a recognised institution .
    So try to continue your study in SSC Board of Education itself .
    And it is on you to choose when you can apply for the NDA Examination .
    But before applying the NDA Examination you must fulfill all its eligibility criteria .

    Now , I"m gonna tell you something about NDA and how to join the Indian Air force Academy through it .
    The NDA Examination is held by the UPSC Government of India .
    This Examination are held all over the India twice a year .
    And the main think about the NDA examination is that only unmarried male candidate can apply this examination , so this means that no girls are eligible for applying the NDA Examination .


    Through NDA Examination you can enter any one of the following Academy of NDA -:
    1. Army wing of NDA .
    2. Air force wing of NDA .
    3. Navy Wing of NDA .


    And to enter this Academy after clearing the NDA Examination and passing in the SSB Rounds you have to at first ,
    that is while applying the NDA Examination you have to give your first choice to that academy of NDA That you would
    like to enter after passing your NDA Examination and continue your Career in that defence Service corresponding to that Academy .

    So before writing the NDA Examination you must fulfill some eligibility criteria to join the Air force wing .
    You should be an unmarried male Indian Citizen or an Unmarried male refugee of other country who had settled in India .
    your age at the time of applying the NDA Examination should be between 16 to 19 years .
    You should be 12th Class pass or the 10+2 level Examination pass with with Physics and Mathematics or science subjects from an recognised institution or a SSC Education board .You can even apply for the NDA Examination when you are studying in the 12th class with with Physics and Mathematics or science subjects .


    So Best of luck My friend .
