Ans: No, only shortlisted candidates are issued with Admit Card for STAR Phase-II Selection Test.
Ans: Shortlisting of candidates for STAR Phase-II is done by applying cut-off to call a sizeable number of candidates for STAR Phase-II testing at various ASCs. Candidate’s name appearing as having been shortlisted solely depends upon the performance of the candidates in the online Written Test. This list only depicts names of candidates who have qualified to appear in STAR Phase-II testing i.e, the second phase of testing. The number of candidates figuring in this list is drawn considering the likely vacancies and wastage during subsequent stages of testing.
Q 9. I checked my result and found that I have not been shortlisted for STAR Phase-II Selection Test even though I have obtained passing marks in the Selection Test. Why?
Ans: Merely obtaining passing marks in the STAR Phase-I Selection Test is not sufficient for issue of Admit Card for STAR Phase-II Selection Test. Admit card for STAR Phase-II Selection Test is issued to candidates who meet the cut off criteria applied for STAR Phase-II Selection Test.
Ans: Candidates who have cleared the Selection Tests comprising of Written Test, PFT-I, PFT-II, Adaptability Test-I and Adaptability Test-II, and have undergone Medical Test (whether declared Fit or Unfit), have to secure place in Provisional Select List (PSL) published pertaining to the exam cycle in which one has cleared the Selection Test.
Ans: It is a list of candidates (published as per their Roll Number) who could not make it in PSL as they are low in merit.
Ans: Merely clearing the Selection Tests does not guarantee appearing of names in the PSL. Names not appearing in the PSL denotes that you are low in merit. You can also check for the PSL Cut off marks printed on PSL to compare your individual score in selection test.
Q 13. I have been issued with Green Card and my name has also appeared in the PSL published in website but I have not been called for enrolment. Why?
Ans: Green Cards are issued to the candidates who pass the Medical Examination during Selection Tests. Issue of Green Card does not give any guarantee for enrolment in IAF. Medical Examination is one among the various criteria for enrolment and it only denotes medical Status of the candidates.
Ans: CSV stands for “Certificate Subject to Verification”. This is because, there is an anomaly in your documents/certificates. This was intimated to you at the time of Selection Test and an undertaking was given by you to clear the anomaly and produce corrected certificate(s) within the given timeframe. The indication of ‘CSV’ against your name in PSL denotes that you have to clear the CSV status within the stipulated time. The candidature of candidates who fail to get the CSV cleared within the stipulated timeframe, gets automatically cancelled on the day of enrolment. However, keeping in view the procedural delay in Educational Boards, your candidature is not cancelled and your CSV status is maintained to avoid cancellation of candidature. You are advised to get the anomaly cleared by the date as mentioned on the first page of PSL. If the CSV is not cleared, your candidature will get automatically cancelled on the day of enrolment.
Q 15. I was awarded CSV status; I have received the corrected certificates from the concerned Board. Where should I report for clearing the CSV Status and what all documents I have to carry?
Ans: To clear the CSV status, you have to report to Commanding Officer of any one of the fourteen ASCs which is located close to your place/convenient to you. You have to produce the following documents for clearance of CSV status:-
- CSV Undertaking Certificate handed over to you at the time of Selection Test.
