if I clear the exam of air Force x &y grp then how many chances to get the job

KISHORE LOHRA 29th Dec, 2019

dear ajay ,

if you clear the airforce group x or group y exam then there is a 50% chance to get the job because clearing the written exam will not provide you the job it only allows a candidate to go for next level which is the physical fitness test and medical .for getting a job in airforce you must have a good physical strength for clearing physical fitness test ,and most of the candidate does this mistake that they prepare for written test but not for physicalfitness test and they disqualified.

so if you want to get the airforce job then you must prepare yourself for both written exam and physical fitness test.
