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.

      The form 137-A is needed for the application. You also need Tesda or Vocational course certificate if you’re a high school graduate.
