    1. The SSB which is scheduled to be in April, this is basically for the Course which is going to commence in July this year. The basic criteria of AFCAT is 60 % aggregate and this too should be attained before joining the Academy. However, if you appear in June TEE, the result will be declared only after July i.e. after commencement of course. So, it will be helpful only for the course commencing in Jan 14.
