Scheme of Syllabus (EKT 2019 – Technical Branch):

EKT (Engineering Knowledge Test) is the examination aimed at testing the basic knowledge of engineering required for the technical branch. Technical branch includes course of Aeronautical Engineering (Electrical and Mechanical). This examination is pitched at pre- final to final year engineering level. Total 75 Objective type questions will be asked in the examination and the duration is 01 hour.

The pattern of examination includes two parts – 
  • General Engineering (40 questions) – Modern Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Computers, Electrical, Electronics, Mechanical Engineering and
  • Specialist Paper for each Engineering discipline (35 questions) – Computer and Electronics, Mechanical, Electronics and Communication Engineering, Electrical and Instrumentation Engineering and Aeronautical Engineering (Mechanical)
AFCAT EKT Exam 2019

All applicants whose online applications have been successfully submitted will be called for Air Force Common Admission Test (AFCAT) and Engineering Knowledge Test (EKT) (applicable only for candidates applying for technical branch).

  • EKT would be for 45 minutes and conducted immediately after AFCAT.
  • The duration of AFCAT 2019 Exam will be 2 Hours and EKT exam will be for 45 mins.

Candidates who will clear the AFCAT exam 2018 will be called for further SSB interview process which is also known as AFSB interview. AFSB stands for air force selection board which are located at Mysore, Dehradun, Varanasi and Gandhinagar.

How and what is required in the process of AFKAT EKT

Selection will be based on score in Engineering Knowledge Test (EKT) (applicable to technical posts only) & Air Force Common Admission Test 2017.

  • After qualifying AFCAT & EKT, contenders will be invited for Medical Test, Intelligence Test, Group Test, Psychological Test and Interview Test round organized by Air Force Selection Boards (AFSBs).
  • All of applicants of Flying Branch should to attempt for Computerized Pilot Selection System (CPSS), Pilot Aptitude Battery Test (PABT).
  • AFCAT Exam will be of two hours duration and will contain multiple choice questions on verbal ability, numerical ability, reasoning, general awareness and military aptitude.
  • Candidates opting for ground duty (technical) branch to pass both AFCAT and EKT.
