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?

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 the real deal here is the time limit. Each of the covered subjects has a duration of 30 minutes. It means you only have about 1 and a half minute to answer each question.

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.

Above AverageB98-111PASSED

If you only managed to get a below-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 98 or higher.

  1. Hi Sir, I’m getting the 404 error whenever I click on the account validation link sent via email. Already contacted/emailed them but the response I’m getting is that they will get back to me ASAP. it’s been almost a week na din. Any idea po kung bakit ganun? Thank you.

  2. Good day Sir, What if po nag exam ako for OCC then hindi ko nkuha yung qualification score na 98 pero I pass the average score, still mkakapasok parin po ba ako for private?

  3. Hi Ma’am/Sir,

    Good day!

    This is Denise E. Manguiat, I would like to request my AFPSAT result last February 28, 2018. I took the exam at TOG11 SASA, Davao City. Nagsearch po ako sa online ng result, pero wala po akong nakita. Nagtake po ako ng Qualifying sa Villamore, nilagyan lang po nila ng score yung claimstab ko.. gusto ko po sana talaga makuha yung form po. Thanks.

  4. Ma’am /Sir makoconsider po ba ang pag-register ko ulit ng account ko sa AFPSAT, kasi po ay accidentally nakalimutan ko po yung una kong account dahil po sa isinulat ko sa maliit na papel yung details ng aking unang account at sa kasamaang palad ay nabasa po ito sa ulan at nabura po yung mga isinulat noong kasagsagan pa ng bagyong ompong at ngayon ay di ko na ma tandaan ang account kong iyon . salamat po sa inyong pag-basa at pag-iintindi… GOD BLESS YOU ALL,..

  5. Good day po, nabago ba ang venue ng AFPSAT exam sa Butuan City bukas Nov 14-15, 2018? Sa facebook kasi, naka lagay doon ay Bancasi Butuan City. Tapus dito ay sa CARAGA State University… Alin ba sa dalawa ang venue?

  6. good day po mga sir. kelan po ba pwedeng mag take nang exam ngayong november to december po. interesado po akong manilbihan sa inyo at sa bayan. nakatapos po ako nang Senior high school. Meron na rin po akong NC2 sa automotive. Sana po matulungan niyo po ako. maraming salamat po.

  7. Gud am mam sir kailangan pa bang may endorsment saka ako matanggap sa suldalo .nag apply ako ng spicial enlistment noong 2017 lahat pumasa ako sa activities Pag dating ng board entetview wala akong pangalan dahil wala akong endorsement na maipakita. Thanks

  8. AFPSAT should not be AFPSAT at all, justice please. why need to goes like this, that when you took your AFPSAT to PA it is only valid to a single service. You cant even use it with other branch???, what was the real reason behind. Hoping this issue will resolve soon. We cant rely for a single opportunity, It must be approved to the three branches. So when there’s a open quota, still we can use our AFPSAT result.

  9. the problem here in Philippines its called palakasan at kumpadre and kumadre..its so difficult to apply here in Philippines to be part of forces service..Im not proud to be Pilipino many times attempted applying as military but im not passed..and now im 37 years already lapses my age for the age still looking forward sad to say im failed…I want to apply in Bucor but their requirements I dont have it already only I have here transcript of record secondary education..civil service im not passer…

    • Ano pong palakasan don? Hindi ka naman pala naka pasa ng mga exam e. Why blame the Philippines and the gov’t when you yourself didn’t gave your best in the first place? Wag mo isisi sa ibang tao yung kasalanan mo. Kumbaga nabuntis mo gelpren mo, ituturo mo sa iba. If you want the Philippines to change, start to reflect and change yourself. You are one of the people who complains about everything but didn’t even do something.
