For Airforce you have got two chance one after the 10 through NDA and other after the graduation through
1. TGT
2. UGT
3. CDS
So you can go for any of them and minimum eligibility is 21 years of age after graduation and above 17 after 10 exam.
so you can go for any one of them for carrier in Airforce and you have got good height.

The exam is held two times in the year.
One in or around February and the other in or around the October.
After the exam, you will be called for the SSB interview. SO, if you are thinking of the AFCAT exam, then you should aim at both the knowledge and physical strength.
