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.

  • Birth Certificate in SECPA issued by the Philippine Statistics Authority

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.

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.

Conclusion
