Dream to success- the path only asks for courage and hard work!

When the discussion reaches to Air Force Common Admission Test (AFCAT) many of us fret and fear. However success comes not with cowardice but with bravery plus an Air Force officer is deemed to take challenges boldly and overcome hurdles. So here is an amalgamation of some secret tips to crack AFCAT 2021 exam:

Know the syllabus foremost. Let me sketch an outline of the same:

General Awareness: history, geography, sports, civics, culture, art, elementary science, Defence etc

Numerical Ability: percentage, average, simplification, profit- loss, simple interest etc.

Verbal English– comprehension, error detection, synonym- antonym, vocabulary, sentence completion etc.

Reasoning & military aptitude–  verbal skill and spatial ability.

For detailed syllabus check the official site of Indian Air Force.

Once you have scanned the entrance curriculum plunge to the marking ratio. There will be 100 questions of 3 marks each hence total 300 marks. Without any leniency there is a portion of negative marks as well. 1 mark will be deducted for every wrong answer.

  • The age old dictum utters how ‘practice makes a man perfect’. Go with the same idea and invest your time in much practice.
  • Talking about subject wise preparation, let’s commence with General Knowledge. Well join hands with all e– news, t.v news, newspaper, magazines and journals to update your brain with national and international affairs. Also pay special attention to Defence news. Add to that revise your general science as per the AFCAT syllabus.
  • For English, work upon your vocabulary, synonym- antonym and sentence formation. Read a lot and take this little secret from me: start communicating in English, it works wonders!
  • For Mathematics… ooh the often termed “toughest” subject but it’s only elementary so get to the logic rather than remote learning. Do mental calculation and grab short tricks. Practice is the winning tool of Mathematics.
  • Mock tests, last 10 year question papers and regular assessments are must for a thorough preparation because without testing your progress you cannot step ahead.
  • Be regular in your studies and work as per a good time table.
  • Time for SSB bite. Yes once you cross the ladder of written exam, SSB will be awaiting for you. It’s a 5 day lengthy procedure testing your verbal, written, physical and psychological skills.
  • For this groom you personality, be more socially active, amplify your confidence level, get into group discussion with friends and gain as much knowledge (about current affairs primarily) as you can.
  • Don’t neglect your fitness. Do health check up. Keep up a good diet and take proper sleep.

AFCAT is nothing but a cakewalk and with the above guide it is certainly made easier. So shout out to the all those appearing for AFCAT 2021 because they are about to reach the motto ‘touch the sky with glory’.
