    Women who are from the engineering background are allowed to enter this stream through the SSC. Also the age requirement is 19 to 23 years. Since you satisfy both these criterias you are eligible to join this stream. You should have atleast 60% aggregate score in the all the papers. You can apply when you are in the final year too.The condition for candidates applying for this scheme is that you will be able to serve for only 14 years. You will receive no extension. Normally there will be advertisements in January and July months. As and when there is an advertisement you will need to send an application. If selected you will need to clear the OLQ test, followed by themedical examination. You can visit the official site of air force to know more details.

    Unlike the early days the Indian defense service is opened to the women aspirants also. Now in the Defence academy, women also receive proportionate importance in getting admission to the service. The IAF exam is mean to the candidates for the Indian Air Force Service. The exam is conducted for different categories and one can select according to the interest. You are eligible to apply for the IAF Officer exam. To write the entrance examination for an officer post in any defense Service you need to have Graduation in any discipline. Some Officer Exams needs to have the criteria Plus two with Maths and physics. You can search for the detailed information in the official website. The criteria about the age limit, physical, technical qualification etc. can be got from NDA exam details published by the institution of Defence Academy.
