Hi Shikhar,

We are very sorry that we are late in replying to you and I assure you that this will not happen again.

As far as deciding a career between navy and air force this is a decision that you might be able to take in a better manner. As both are related to defence you can choose any of them depending on what do you actually think you would be able to handle better.

The eligibility criteria for the entrance exam for navy 10+2 Cadet (B.Tec) are having an age of17 to 19 1/2 years on the date of examination, at least 70% marks in Physics, Chemistry and mathematics (PCM) and at least 50% marks in English (either in Class X or Class XII). You will also have to pass the physical fitness test.



For selection in air force you will have to give the Air Force Common Admission Test (AFCAT) after you qualify that you will be qualify for the next round that is- The Psychological Tests that are written tests conducted by a Psychologist, then the Group Tests that are interactive indoor and outdoor tests then the Interview which involves a personal conversation with the Interviewing Officer. Then the medical exam is conducted and then the merit list is prepared. The age requirements that are asked are the person having an age between 16.5 to 19 years, the person should be an Indian; you should have passed your 10+2 with Physics and Mathematics. Final year students can also apply.

Defence engineering you can also opt for BE from Army Institute of Technology but I would like to tell you that it is for children of people who have served or are serving the army.

You can start preparing from now also, the most important being your physical fitness.

Best of Luck!
