  27. Hi, good day.

    24 years old na po ako, graduate ng 4 year course, applying as PAF Officer.

    Nagupload na po ako ng requirements online (2×2 & whole body pic, birth certificate, diploma & TOR). Meron na po akong permit to take the “exam” (status is pending).

    Question is, kailangan pa po ba mag AFPSAT? Or magiintay lang po ako ng schedule kung when on April 2-5 ako mag apply ng PAFOCS exam?

    Thank you very much

    • Kung may valid AFPSAT result ka na at pasok ang score mo sa commissionship, pwede ka na mag-apply agad and no need to take the PAF QUalifying Exam. Kung wala ka pa na AFPSAT result, maghintay ka na lang ng schedule of the PAF qualifying exam. Hindi prerequisite ang AFPSAT para makapag take ng PAF Qualifying Exam.
