Being, girl you are not eligible to join IAF after 10+2. So, you have to wait for graduation degree to appear for CDS examination for selection in Air Force.

CDS stands for Combined Defence Services examination and it is conducted by UPSC twice every year.

To appear for examination it is necessary to have mathematics and physics as main paper in graduation and age must be between 19-23 years.

The examination is conducted in two stages as written and SSB candidates have to qualify in both stages for final selection. For more information about examination visit at www.upsc.gov.in.

After 12th board examination, the best way to join Indian Air Force is via NDA examination conducted by UPSC(Union Public Service Commission) twice in a year in month of April and September.
But in NDA examination, only unmarried male candidates are allowed to appear, so, being a girl you are not eligible to appear for NDA.
Girls can join Defence services after completing graduation through CDS.
CDS stands for Combined Defence Service.
It is also conducted by UPSC twice in a year.
Eligibility to appear in CDS are
-Candidate must be citizen of India
-Candidate must be of age 18-23 years for Military Academy and Naval Academy and 20--24 years for Air Force Academy and Officers Training Academy.
