    Re: Can a BA candidate join for IAF?

    This option is available for candidates who are 12th pass. But they should have studied both Physics and Mathematics during this period. Also females are not allowed to apply. As part of the selection procedure candidates will be required to clear the UPSC exam. NDA too is option available. Any candidate below 16 1/2 years of age cannot apply. Also any candidate who is over 19 years too cannot apply. There will be advertisement of the of the eligibility criteria in both March and October. Since you are from BA background certainly you cannot go into this stream. If you wish to join the defense sector you can join only in the non technical side. If you are joining after 12th standard then NDA is an option available. If you are joining after graduation then you will first need to appear for the UPSC exam.

    Being from the BA background you will not be eligible for the IAF. You need to have pursued the science stream. Both Physics and Mathematics should be subjects amongst those studied. If you are interested in the defense fields you do have other options. You can join in the Non Technical side. One option is appearing for UPSC exam. The other is the OTA scheme. For both clearing the exam will not be sufficient. You need to be physically fit and also need to clear the interview round. You can visit official site to know more details.

    Re: Can a BA candidate join for IAF?

    As per my knowledge, to join IAF , you must have a engineering background, otherwise its not possible.
    Since you have arts background, you dont know anything about physics & maths, so you are not eligible.
    But you can join Army through CDSE exam conducted by UPSC.

    Candidates for the 12th are the options available. But during this period should be studied both physics and mathematics. In addition, women are not allowed to apply. As part of the selection process, candidates will need to clear UPSC exams. NDA is also available options. Age 16 1/2 years of age, a candidate can not apply. Being BA background you will not be eligible for the Indian Air Force. You need to have followed the science stream. Both physics and mathematics among the topics to be studied. If you are interested in defense you have other options. You may include non-technical side.

    Union Public Service Commission is to test the options. OTA has other plans. Both clearing the test will not be enough. You have to be physically fit and need to clear the interview round. Eligibility criteria will be used in both March and October. If you are joining the NDA after the 12th grade is an option.
