Recently UPSC published the result for the written examination of CAPF Assistant Commandants. Very soon the shortlisted candidates will be called for the personality test. The selected candidates will undergo medical and physical tests. This article guides the candidates about the medical examination and the physical standards required for this CAPF Assistant Commandants.

Let’s talk about the medical examination. Before the medical examination starts the candidates are required to submit their DAF(Detailed Application Form). The medical examination is followed by the PET day. It’s a time-consuming process so one is expected to be patient. Candidates are verified by generally 3-4 doctors for different parts. On the first day, candidates are taken for an X-ray of their chest area. Heavy smokers may face a problem here. The blood samples and urine samples of the candidates are collected and sent to the lab. These samples are tested for various parameters like sugar, platelet count, etc. Then there is a general full body check-up. A doctor will examine your whole body generally. Different body parts, major bones, etc., and their shape, etc. are examined. Candidates with flat-foot and knock-knees may face a problem here.

After the general body check-up, the candidates are sent for an eye check-up. There are certain standards for myopic and hypermetropia eyes. There is also a provision of re-medical. Candidates undergone any surgery or treatment in the past should not hide their medical history.

Then there is a final medical check-up where things like your pulse rate, blood pressure, etc. are examined. Your dental points are examined. Your limbs are checked. You might be asked for walking on your toes. Before checking your blood pressure and pulse rate you will be asked for a basic body warm-up like sit-ups or push-ups.

The medical procedure for an individual is not very long but you have to wait till the last candidate gets examined. The medical results will be declared and you will get a clearance certificate.

Before going for the actual PET test, the candidates must practice properly.
