    Re: When is the next EKT and AFCAT exam? When is the CDS exam?

    Dear Friend,

    As there is no Notification and official Statement Regarding next AFCAT(Air force common Admission Test)

    As AFCAT Exam is Conducted only once in a Academic Year. So you have to wait for the Next Academic year Notifications.

    As this Academic year notifications published in the month of May-june and Exam is conducted for 28th August 2011.

    AFCAT Exam is conducted to recruit candidates in 3 branches of Air force:Flying ....Technical....Ground Duty.

    EKT:-Engineering Knowledge Test is next step for those who have already cleared Written Exam of AFCAT and applied for Technical Branch.


    As of now you can apply for CDS(Combined defence service) Exam that is going to be conducted on 12th feb 2012.

    Notifications for that is already been published in local newspapers and employement news section.

    Last Date for applying is

    Re: When is the next EKT and AFCAT exam? When is the CDS exam?

    hai frd
    as you have completed your graduation
    .......you are eligible for CDS exam.......
    as the minimum eligibility for
    CDS exam is a pass class in graduation from bsc or b.tech.....

    you might
    not be eligible for the fast track mode ie. direct interview mode.......because
    your total % is below 60........

    now you just need to score good at the
    cds exam and then you will be called for an interview.......

    read
    employment newspapers or visit the official website for more information on
    eligibility and the time of conduct of the exam......

    best of luck
