Indian Air Force has published the result of AFCAT 2 2017 on 13 Oct 2017, around 14,500+ candidates were able to clear the AFCAT 2 2017 written exam and required to select the AFSB interview date and venue. As most of the candidates who are not aware of the procedure to select the AFSB interview date can check the details below. We have received tons of emails from candidates panicking, they are not able to select the AFSB date and venue.
Note: IAF has enabled the venue and date selection option now.
How to select the AFSB date and venue?
- Login to careerairforce.nic.in
- It will look something like this:
- Click on the option, you will get to choose your AFSB venue out of all AFSBs. (You must check for railway/flight booking before selecting your AFSB interview date and venue)
- Candidates who have applied only for Flying Branch are to select 1 AFSB (Dehradun), 2 AFSB (Mysore) or 4 AFSB (Varanasi) as their AFSB centre.
- Once you select the venue, you will see different batches for that particular AFSB including the maximum number of candidates it can take.
- Select your AFSB interview date because every centre has some limited number of seats on a particular date which will be assigned on first come first serve basis.
- Shortlisted candidates who fail to select their AFSB schedules by 19 Oct 17 would not get AFSB of their preference due to limited seats. Hence all candidates are to compulsorily choose AFSB venue by due date.
- Make sure you think before choosing a venue and date, you can not change the venue and date once selected.
What to do after AFSB venue and Date selection?
- You are almost done. Now prepare for the AFSB interview.
- Get ready with all the required documents.
- Candidates are required to print the Call-up Letter and associated forms from the website on or after 17 Oct 17 and report to their selected venue along with AFCAT Admit Card, Call Up letter, documents as listed in the Call Up letter & associated forms duly filled.
- Once you are done preparing all the documents, it’s time to make the travel arrangments (You must check for railway/flight booking before selecting your AFSB interview date and venue).
- Once the traveling part is done, the only and the most important thing to do is to prepare for the SSB /AFSB interview (SSB AFSB both are same).
