As you can see, the required AFOQT scores vary depending upon your desired career field. The Air Force Officer Qualifying Test (AFOQT) is divided into 12 subtests and scored according to 7 composites comprised of several combinations of said subtests. There are 5 composites that have minimum score requirements. For further information re: how to read AFOQT scores have a look at our previous score calculation post.

*Keep in mind these are MINIMUM REQUIRED scores. Selectee scores are often significantly higher. If you are unsatisfied with your scores after taking the AFOQT, weigh your options carefully. Take stock of the other components of your package (GPA, type of degree, experience, prior service, references, etc.). Remember: your most recent AFOQT score is no longer the only one that counts. The Air Force released ‘super-scoring’ guidance that allows applicants to utilize their best score for a given composite whether it occurs during an initial or subsequent attempt.

Note: Confirm the updated scoring information with your recruiter (and/or other person ‘in the know’) before you accept it as gospel. Have a look at the Air Force AFOQT Pamphlet for some additional information, too

AFOQT Scores are valid for life. If you took the former ‘S Form’ AFOQT, your scores have been converted to the updated ‘Form T’ format.

If you have already taken the AFOQT and wish to obtain your scores, you can visit the Air Force Personnel Center Website. Scores are typically uploaded about 8-10 business days after your test date. You will be required to input your social security number (last four), first name and initials (as designated at your testing center) to view your scores.
