Your AFOQT results will be scored across 7 composites, 5 of which have minimum required scores, upon completion.

It’s important to understand the AFOQT scoring breakdown because the same subtests (e.g., Math Knowledge) are often included in multiple composite scores depending upon desired career field (the Math Knowledge Subtest is included in 3 of the 5 composites for pilot hopefuls).

Here is a list of the 7 composites:

  • Verbal
  • Quantitative
  • Academic Aptitude
  • Situational Judgment
  • Pilot
  • Combat Systems Officer (CSO)
  • Air Battle Manager (ABM)

Note: Academic Aptitude & Situational Judgment composites do not have minimum required scores. 

Composite scores are derived from several combinations of AFOQT Subtests.

Situational Judgment: Comprised of the Situational Judgment Subtest. No minimum score required.

Quantitative: Comprised of the Arithmetic Reasoning & Math Knowledge Subtests. Minimum required score is 10.

Verbal: Comprised of the Verbal Analogies, Word Knowledge & Reading Comprehension Subtests. Minimum required score is 15.

Academic Aptitude: Comprised of the Verbal Analogies, Word Knowledge, Arithmetic Reasoning & Math Knowledge Subtests. No minimum score required.

Air Battle Manager (ABM): Comprised of the Verbal Analogies, Word Knowledge, Table Reading, Instrument Comprehension, Block Counting & Aviation Information Subtests. ABM hopefuls need a minimum score of 25. Not required for anyone else.

Combat Systems Officer (CSO): Comprised of the Verbal Analogies, Arithmetic Reasoning, Table Reading, Math Knowledge, Block Counting & Physical Science. CSO hopefuls need a minimum score of 25. Pilots need at least a 10.

Pilot: Comprised of the Instrument Comprehension, Table Reading, Aviation Information & Math Knowledge Subtests. Pilots need a minimum score of 25. Navigator hopefuls need to score a minimum of 10.
