  1. Sir, I have submitted my AFCAT form however I made a mistake of filling up only aggregate percentage of 5 semesters rather than 6 semesters, only now I realize it.
    Should I fill another form( my details would be same though, with change in aggregate percentage only ).
    I called AFCAT helpdesk, they just replied ” Submit kar diya na ,thik hai phir…….”
    But I feel this might affect during later stages of selection as they have mentioned in their advertisement to fill aggregate percentage upto recent sem!!!!!
    Please help….

    • Bro, you should focus on your preparation rather than this, unless your eligibility is not compromised due to this. And please reply to my query as well.
