AFCAT stands for the Air Force Commission Admission Test and CDS stands for the Combined Defence Service examination. Both of these are written examinations that are followed by the SSB to select the young as well as suitable girls and boys for the defence forces of India.

Eligibility criteria of both of them are quite similar which means that people need to be graduates at least and further qualification will always depend on the type of service in which the candidates are interested to join. Both of these examinations are quite different from each other and the basic points of differences between both of them have been explained as follows:

  1. AFCAT exam is the perfect examination which has been undertaken in such a manner that it will be leading to the selection of the young boys and girls only for Air Force whereas on the other hand CDS is the examination which has been meant for selecting the candidates for three wings which is Air Force, Navy and Army.
  2. AFCAT is conducted twice every year by the Indian Air Force and CDC is conducted by UPSC twice every year.For AFCAT one notification will be coming in the first week of December and will be lasting for a month and the cases of CDS first notification will be coming generally the beginning of November and filling of application will be lasting for a month.
  3. In the cases of the second notification, AFCAT releases the notification in the first week of June and the applications are accepted for one month and on the other hand, CDS releases the notification in May and applications are accepted for one month.
  4. AFCAT will be conducted the first week of February and in the last week of August and on the other hand, CDS will be conducted at the beginning of February and at the beginning of September.
  5. AFCAT results are declared within one month of the conducting of the examination which means by the end of March or by the end of September respectively and the qualified candidates will be called for SSB. On the other hand, the results of the written CDS will be declared within June and for the second case, it will be done in the cases of January after which SSB will be followed for the qualified candidates.
  6. The age limit for AFCAT in the cases of the line will be 19-23 years; in the case of technology will be 18-28 years and in the case of ground duty it will be 20-25 years depending upon the graduation done by the candidates. In the cases of CDS age limit will be for the Indian Army 19-24 years, the Indian Air Force 19-24 years and the cases of the Indian elite will be 19-22 years.
  7. AFCAT makes the girls and boys join the Indian Air Force in terms of flying, technical or ground duty codes and on the other hand CDS makes it the way for young boys to join the Indian Air Force for the flying course only. Girls can only join for OTA which will be the non-technical course of the Army and no other wing of the defence through the CDS.

Ultimately the betterment of both of these examinations and right preparation with BYJU’s Exam Prep will always depend upon the interest and preferences of the candidates so that they can apply in the right direction and can secure the job positions very successfully.

Both of these examinations require a lot of dedication and effort on the behalf of people and if the individuals are having good knowledge of the English language, mathematical skills and GK then AFCAT will be a smooth ride for them. Indulging in self-analysis in both of these examinations is the best possible way of finding out which particular option will be perfect for the candidates.
