  2. sir, i am first year student of B.sc chemistry can have apply for airforce fly branch after my UG Graduation if any option for join airforce flying branch

  3. sir/mam,
    SUBMISSION FAILED DUE TO INVALID DATA
    This the message which shows when i press the Save and Preview Application button at the end of part 5 of the form.
    I have been trying for over 2 weekS to submit the form (after part 5) but in vain. I have tried different devices and registered with a new e-mail as well, but still cannot submit. However i will submit only one form ( par submit to ho yaar)

    Please give me possible solutions for this as last date is very near.

    P.S. While i searched on the internet and found that the AFCAT cell replied to similar queries suggesting to fill the part 2 correctly. In my case : 1. I have completed my graduation this very year (2015) and filled 16 Jun 2015 as date of obtaining degree. However i also tried other dates by filling dates before 15 Jun 2016, but none of the dates are helping. 2. I also cross checked by changing my qualification from B.Tech to AERONAUTICAL ENGINEERING, but still no success. 3. Regarding my photo, i have cross checked the guidelines, no problem there. 4. I am pretty sure rest of my information is correctly filled.

    Thanking you. Please acknowledge Asap.

      • Oh really….Thank you ssbcrack for NOT READING my post and giving a silly reply. (wasn’t expecting this from you though, lol)
        Well i haven’t just typed such a comprehensive post so as to get obvious solution. I gave substantial details so as make it more specific for you.The one you came up with, i already included in point no.1. (yay, you didn’t bothered to have a glance at it even once, i infer)
        Anyways, don’t reply if you guys are clueless about a query, or, if you do reply, then please, put some efforts, yes, genuine one, to answer.
        p.s. I have already submitted (after infinite attempts), this is mere suggestion, no offense.

        • What we suggest is an actual problem which many other candidates are facing. When we said hit and try, it was similar to you doing infinite attempts. Only solution for this error is to submit the form again and again by putting correct information or changing the college start or passout date so as to make the difference of 4 years. Hope you get this. All the best.

          • Sir,my problem is also same so many days i am filling form but it is showing invalid data.Now tell what to do today is last date…..

          • Anshu, make sure you are filling all the details correctly like DOB, Stream, Date of Joining College and Passout date. Keep trying. Should have 4 years diff between your college joining and passout date.
