AFOQT Pilot score vs. PCSM for Guard Fighters

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hello All,

Just wanted to get some opinions on if I should retake the AFOQT to be more competitive for guard fighter units. 

Pilot: 88

Nav: 67

Academic Aptitude: 83

Verbal: 69

Quant: 86

PCSM 92 with 201+ hours.

From the feedback I’ve received from two rejection emails, it seems my pilot score is a bit on the lower side but my PCSM is pretty much on par with the average for interview selectees. I have no problem retaking the AFOQT but I am concerned about the risk of potentially scoring lower. I also have 5,000 hours of civilian flight time. The only reason I mention that is I wasn’t sure if that would be a factor when looking at the slightly lower Pilot score. 
 

Thanks!

You have a 6 month wait to retest for the AFOQT so you might as well study if you take it again.

The short answer is likely "it depends." Every board, from what I understand, does things differently. That said, you only get one chance to make a first impression. If it's no issue for you to retest, then do so, but I would do a lot of studying prior to retesting.

You may want to also consider retaking the TBAS (if your goal is to improve your PCSM). Looking at your max PCSM, you should be able to squeeze out a couple more points. To put things into perspective, I scored an 82 Pilot AFOQT and have a PCSM max score of 94 at 201+ hours. Definitely room for you to improve the PCSM score if you don’t want to risk retaking the AFOQT. Just food for thought, good luck man!
