AFPSAT 2021 Schedule, Requirements and Reviewer

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 2021. 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.

Coverage and Reviewer

If you are looking for an effective reviewer for the upcoming AFPSAT, we recommend the AFPSAT Reviewer with Neuro-Psychiatric Test Samples book. It is available in Shopee and can be paid through the Cash on Delivery option. This is good review material if you are willing to spend money on your review, otherwise, use our free online reviewer below.

Like any other AFPSAT exam in the past, the AFPSAT for 2021 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 minutes to answer each question.
