AFPSAT 2018 Reviewer, Coverage, Schedule, and Requirements

The Armed Forces of the Philippines Service Aptitude Test or the AFPSAT is the pre-entry examination for qualified applicants who wish to join the armed forces. If you are planning to join the Philippine Army, Philippine Navy, or the Philippine Air Force, you must first take and pass this test administered by the Army Recruitment Office. To help you on the first step to your future military career, we will discuss the requirements, schedule and exam coverage of the AFPSAT this 2018. We will also provide a free online reviewer to increase your chances of passing the AFPSAT and get the required score for your chosen course. Please read on.

AFPSAT Qualifications and Requirements

The AFPSAT is only given to those who are qualified to take the Officer Candidate Course, Officer Preparatory Course, or the Candidate Soldier Course. Do you want to find out if you are qualified? Check out our post on “How to be a soldier in the Philippine Army“. That article is for the Philippine Army, but it is also applicable for the Air Force and Navy.

Basic Requirements:

If you think you have all the qualifications, please prepare the following basic requirements for the AFPSAT:

  • Birth Certificate in SECPA issued by the Philippine Statistics Authority
  • Original Transcript of Records and Diploma (for degree holders)/TOR for college undergraduates.
  • Original diploma with Form 137-A ( for high school graduate applicants but with Tesda or Vocational course certificate)
  • Valid ID (Government-issued)
  • 2 pcs 2×2 picture with white background
  • For female applicants, should be at least 72 units from college.

Schedule and Venue

For Metro Manila and nearby provinces, the AFPSAT is open every day (0800H-1700H) at the Philippine Army Recruitment Center, Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City. Similarly, the Army Recruitment Mobile Teams of the Army Recruitment Offices in Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao conduct AFPSAT, AQE, and SWE on the different venues across the country. Follow their official Facebook pages for the AFPSAT schedule and venues. You may also bookmark this page for 2018 AFPSAT schedule updates.

Update: May 16, 2018 

The Army Recruitment Mobile Team of ARO-VISAYAS will conduct Pre-Entry Examination (AFPSAT and AQE / SWE) to qualified applicants for Officer Candidate Course (OCC), Officer Preparatory Course (OPC) and Candidate Soldier Course (CSC) in order to widen the pool of applicants who are willing to join the Philippine Army. Here are the details:

  • May 21-22, 2018 – (8am-5pm)- AFPSAT- 302 Inf Bde, 3ID, PA Camp Rajah Sikatuna, Carmen, Bohol
  • May 23, 2018 – (8am-5pm)- AQE/SWE – Holy Name University, Tagbilaran City, Bohol.

Coverage and Reviewer

Like any other AFPSAT exam in the past, the AFPSAT for 2018 will cover the following subjects in a 150-question test in multiple choice format. This examination is not that hard but in order to achieve the required score for the OCC and OPC, you must prepare for it. To access our free online AFPSAT reviewer, just follow the links below:

Do you want to join the Air Force and get the chance to become a pilot someday? Check this out: Philippine Air Force Exam 2018 Schedule, Venue and Requirements

Passing Score and Mechanics

After taking and passing the AFPSAT, the results shall be valid for 3 years. All the major services in the AFP (Army, Navy and Air Force) shall recognize the AFPSAT results as valid and you do not need to repeat the same test if you decide to apply in another branch of service within the 3-year validity.

If you only managed to get a very low rating which is below the passing score, retake shall only be allowed and it shall be conducted at least 6 months after the first examination. Examinees who failed the test will not be allowed for a retake.

If you are an officer candidate who will undergo the Officer Candidate Course or the Officer Preparatory Course, you must pass this exam with a raw score of 71 or higher.


Do you have what it takes to be the next officer or enlisted personnel in the Armed Forces of the Philippines? What are you waiting for? Go to the nearest Philippine Army Recruitment Office in your area and submit your application. Goodluck!
