How Many Times Am I Allowed To Take The AFOQT?

You may take the AFOQT twice. However, your most recent test score is the one that counts. In rare circumstances you may obtain a waiver to take the AFOQT more than two times.

Note: If you take the AFOQT and your scores just meet the minimum requirements*: P50/N50/Q50/V50/AA50, you might consider ensuring the rest of your package (e.g., letters of recommendation, resume, personal statement, interview, gpa) is superb rather than waiting to re-test and possibly scoring worse than you did the first time.

Where Can I Go For More Air Force Related Information?

Air Force OTS is the most comprehensive ‘all things becoming an Air Force Officer’ resource I have found. The site is run by Officer Candidate School (OCS) graduates to assist all patrons interested in pursuing a career as a military officer (there are separate sites for all military branches). It is a forum – so it’ s a great place to go if you have lots of questions. Check it out!

If you’re looking for general information concerning Officer Training School (OTS), is a good place to start. The personal statement and ‘Surviving OTS’ information is informative (note: it is based on one individual’s 2013 OTS experience).

For more ‘front-end’ Air Force information have a look at the .mil website: If you’re interested in learning more about a particular air force base, each installation maintains a website (e.g., Little Rock AFB). URL format is generally:, just punch in your desired base and you’re good to go.

How Do I Schedule My AFOQT?

Contact your recruiter (civilian), speak with fellow cadets or your Air Force ROTC POC. He or she will give you information about upcoming boards and your optimal test taking window(s). The earlier the better!
