The AFOQT, or Air Force Officer Qualification Test, is an exam given to individuals who wish to apply for an officer commission with the United States Air Force. The exam is given at specific testing locations to include ROTC units and MEPS locations, and tests on a wide variety of concepts. There are twelve sections in the AFOQT and the exam takes approximately three hours to complete. The scores from each of the twelve sections are compiled to create five separate scores, measuring an applicant's fitness in the areas of Pilot, Navigator, Verbal, Academic Aptitude, and a Quantitative Score. These scores are then used to determine an applicant's fitness for service in the United States Air Force as a commissioned officer, and what specific officer jobs the applicant is qualified to perform.
