Candidates who passed the SSB interview but were unable to present a copy of their matriculation, 10+2, or equivalent certification in person should send suitably self-attested printouts. Candidates who are permitted to take the UPSC Examination but have not yet passed the 12th grade or an equivalent exam should be aware that this is simply a special favour. They must provide proof that they passed the 12th grade or an equivalent exam by the deadline specified by the UPSC (December 24, 2023, for NDA (I) and June 24, 2024), and no request to extend this deadline will be considered based on a delay by the board or university examination administration, a delay in the release of results, or any other reason at all.
Candidates who have been excluded from holding any form of Commission in the Defense Services by the Ministry of Defence will not be considered for enrollment in the examination. If allowed, their candidacy will be withdrawn. If candidates fill out the online application on the Commission’s website, they will not be eligible for the Air Force in Field Duty branches if they previously failed the CPSS/PABT.
