    You can take the Combined Defense Services Examination (conducted by UPSC). you should have physics and maths in +2 level and graduation in any discipline. but the main criteria is that you should be a male. the merit list will be put up where the selected candidates will be called for the training period. as you pass it, you will get a post in air force. Short Service Commission exam (For Men & Women) with Term of Engagement of 14 Years with no further extension. this has the similar criteria of physics and maths with a minimum of 60% in all subjects.

    dear
    After BCA you can't apply for the officer grade in airforce because in airforce technical grade officer eligibility is B.tech or MCA,
    but when you have complete you MCA you can also apply for this grade.
    you have to clear test which is determined for this post...
    BCA is the graduation degree so you can apply for only which post which eligibility is graduation. some officer post come in there......

    so if you want to become an officer in technical cadere you have to complete you MCA after that you can apply for this ....

    for more information visit the airforce website ;
    www.indianairforce.nic.in//


    best of luck.....

    Since,you have done BCA,you can apply for ground duty officer in Air Force.In order to become Ground duty officer you have to face AFCAT exam which is conducted by Air force it self.
    Eligibility for AFCAT:-
    1.Age must be between 19 years to 25 years.
    2.Candidate must be graduate in any stream.
    3.Candidate must have scored 60% or above.

    If you qualify in AFCAT then you will call for other test which is very important in order to become officer.Those tests are:-
    1.Intelligence test,picture perception test.
    2.Group discussion followed by interview
    3.Medical test.This is very important to clear.Many candidates done well in other tests but they fail in medical test.So,be fit for any medical test.
    If you pass these all tests then you will be having 52 weeks training after completion of the training your job as officer will start.
