AFPSAT and PAFGCT
There are two qualifying examinations you have to pass to join the PAFOC or the BMT courses, namely, Armed Forces of the Philippines Service Aptitude Test (AFPSAT) and the Philippine Air Force General Classification Test (PAFGCT). The AFPSAT is applicable for all the branches of the AFP and has a validity of 3 years. If you have passed the AFPSAT from any of the AFP services, just bring your valid AFPSAT Individual Result Form. You do not have to take the AFPSAT anymore. The PAFGCT, on the other hand, must be taken every time you apply.
Those who passed the qualifying examinations will be ranked according to their scores for the two qualifying examinations. Top applicants will advance to the next phase of the screening process which is the Physical Fitness Test (PFT).
The passing score of PAFOCC Applicants for AFPSAT is 71 out of 150 and PAFGCT is 60 out of 120. For the CS applicants, the passing score is 48 out of 150 and 42 out of 120 for AFPSAT and PAFGCT, respectively.
